"Too many teachers in Thailand were living paycheck to paycheck"

The great escape - Sav taught in Bangkok and Hat Yai for a couple of years before going back to the UK to get a teaching qualification. Then he got 'stuck' back home, teaching in a secondary school.

Using movies in the classroom

It's showtime! - Teacher trainer, Stephen Louw, is a big fan of teaching English through movie clips. "you can get a lot of mileage from just a few minutes lifted from a movie" he says.  


More Stephen Louw blogs - including 'why can't schools recognize the importance of a good teachers' room?' and 'when a school is looking for the right teacher, do they know who the right teacher really is?'

What to do when you want to be a teacher but have no teaching experience?

Teacher advice - When Parin Hemtanon realised that lack of teaching experience was holding him back, he created his own 'self-help teacher training program', which included volunteer work, teaching friends and observing other teachers. Could any of these things work for you? 


Teaching in an EP - "The idea is that the immersion into English-only classrooms allows students to learn English faster and at a more advanced level, but not all of my students fit that ideal, and I can't help but believe that in some cases participating in an English Program hampers the educational progress of the student"
