Frank Coulson

We wanted to chat to an actual job-hunter in Thailand to find out how things really are on the front-line during the busy recruitment season. How many jobs have you applied for? Is applying by e-mail the way to go? Are you usually required to do a demo? So many questions to ask. Perhaps teacher Frank can supply us with some answers.


Corrie T

Corrie T has been a teacher at an Islamic school in Pattani Province since October 2018. Let's find out what's it like to work there compared to a regular Thai school.


Chris Seal

Shrewsbury International School in Bangkok is recognized as one of the top international schools in Thailand. They have recently opened a new campus on Rama 9, the City Campus, to accompany their well-established Riverside Campus on Charoen Krung Road. Ajarn is honored to chat with the recently-appointed Riverside Principal, Mr Chris Seal.


Aaron Flack

Aaron Flack works at a multinational company in Bangkok in a position I've always referred to as an 'in-house company teacher'. Let's pull up a chair (after we've screwed the legs on of course) and hear about what the job entails working for that well-known Swedish company with the yellow and blue logo.


Erich R. Sysak

Erich R. Sysak has lived in Thailand for almost two decades. He's got many years of English teaching experience under his belt but he's also written several Thai-themed novels and developed a permaculture farm in Isaan. Now this guy really does sound like an interesting fellow.


Stephen Saad

Stephen Saad is an expat and Thai language learning enthusiast. He's also written a wonderful book called "100 Thai Words That Make You Sound Thai". Ajarn met Steve for coffee and talked about all things Thai language.


Rob Whitelaw

Kickstart Art is a non-profit, community organization that delivers art classes to migrant and refugee children living along the Thai / Myanmar Border. Sounds interesting. Let’s find out a bit more from Director, Rob Whitelaw.


Nick Spencer

Nick Spencer is the man behind Smart Fun - an education company that brings out the engineer in every young student by using Lego bricks. And who doesn't love playing around with Lego!


Robert Walsh

It’s not uncommon for foreign teachers in Thailand to fancy a change of scenery and head for pastures new and to one of Thailand’s neighbours – perhaps Myanmar, Vietnam or Cambodia. But what about Laos? I’d like to know a bit more about what’s going on there. I came across a website for a wonderful looking institute in Vientiane called the Oscar International School and found out that Mr Robert Walsh is the man to fire the questions at.


Vern Lovic

If you’re ever unfortunate enough to get bitten by a snake in Thailand, then just pray that there’s a guy like Vern Lovic within shouting distance. Among numerous other on-line interests, he is Thailand’s ‘farang snake guy’. I couldn’t give the chance to chat with Vern a missssssss.
