He's a Frenchman, except he's 75% Chinese and 25% Laotian. He teaches English. Oh and he once lived in Runcorn. We've truly gone international here on the ajarn.com hot-seat.
Could you organize 34 Asian university students to each write and contribute one chapter of a perfectly-written novel, and then see it published in paperback? This man has. He's worked as something of an English literature boffin at Bangkok's most expensive university for over ten years. He knows a ridiculous amount about English premier league football (for an American anyway) and he's currently involved in one of the most difficult and intriguing student projects I've ever heard of. We welcome Ajarn Denny to the ajarn.com hot seat.
A rare appearance by a teacher from 'down under'. He had a stressful job in Australia. Came to teach in Thailand for five years. Went back to the stressful job in Australia. Er......and now he's in China.
Jerry came to Thailand with no teaching experience and no teaching certificate. I guess he just fancied giving it a go. So how's it been going?
In this dog eat dog world of teaching EFL in Thailand, isn't it nice to know that are still some kind souls who believe in giving up a few hours a week to do voluntary work. Good on ya mate!
Douglas is something of an expert on the Rajabhat institutes. If you're anything like me you're perhaps a bit confused as to exactly what they are. Well he works at one and loves every minute.
He's taught in South America. He taught in South Thailand during the terrorist attack on New York. And he's been the victim of some appalling Thai management decisions. It's been a hell of a journey.
Still very much a novice to Thailand, but already perhaps regretting the decision to come here in many ways. It's certainly been no bed of roses.
When it comes to teacher recruitment and interviewing, few people have more experience than John Caulfield, the cheery, cricket-loving Australian chappie who holds the position of academic director for Inlingua. Ajarn.com gets John C (as he’s affectionately known) to sit still for five minutes and answer a few questions.
'Big Dunc' as he prefers to be called, is here teaching in Thailand for two reasons - Thai women and cheap ale. Not necessarily in that order. He just can't figure out which is more important. If you're genuinely interested in teaching methodology and the development of your students, I strongly recommend you give this interview a miss. Just don't come crying to me.
