David Gevaux

Lets talk to a teacher who came to teach in Thailand but soon realized that he was perhaps a little 'under-qualified' or rather wanted to improve his chances of landing a better job. The answer was to enroll on a degree course in Bangkok. Take it away David Gevaux.


Andy Hill

Andy H (or Aitch as he's better known) is the webmaster behind Mrroomfinder.com, one of Thailand's most popular apartment websites. What a lot of people don't know is that this extremely likable Cambridge lad was teaching in Bangkok as long ago as 1994. Since then, life has been something of a roller-coaster. Say what you like about Aitch, he's always got an interesting tale to tell.


Ralph Sasser

Ralph Sasser doesn't hold down a 'big position' in Thailand's EFL business and he has no illusions of grandeur. He came to Thailand purely because it felt like home and happiness was of paramount importance. He's a regular guy and a regular teacher.


Dave Roberts

As Asia-wide recruiter for Shane Language Schools, few people are in a better position to compare and analyze conditions for teachers in Korea, Taiwan, Japan, China.....and of course Thailand.


Timothy McCrystle

Tim McCrystle has spent six years teaching English in The Land of Smiles and in his words "had a good look around all the aspects of teaching in Thailand" - so let's hear what he's got to say for himself.


Al Lock

Let's catch up with what's happening in the world of corporate training, and who better to put in the hot seat than Mr Al Lock, Managing Director of NLI, a company that specializes in high-end training programs for multi-national companies.


David Solomon

David Solomon is firstly an Australian and secondly a very well-qualified teacher trainer for a well-known TEFL course provider down in Pattaya. He contacted Ajarn.com and offered to be 2007's first hot seat candidate. Take it away sport.


Jay Johnson

Jay works for a Thai school that has recently come in for a lot of criticism on the TEFLwatch website, but are there two sides to this story? Jay Johnson feels that much of the criticism is unjustified and that great improvements are being made.


Kevin Forster

Tired of the rather negative images portrayed in many of our hot-seat interviews, Kevin fancied a go himself at answering a few questions and giving his own points of view. Kevin is a 46-year old government high school teacher and has worked in Thailand since 1995.


Brian Boyd

We've all seen Thai kids and Thai adults with their heads stuck in those damn cartoon books, but could Japanese anime be making way for Grammarman - a new comic-book superhero. Grammarman is the brainchild of Mr Brian Boyd, a teacher with the British Council Bangkok.
