Jackie Yearwood

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.


John Caulfield

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.


Duncan Lewis

'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.


Andy Wing

The reason we've extended an invitation to Andy W to take his place in the hot seat is simply because he falls into that enviable category of ex-teachers who have gone on to do something far more lucrative, and dare I say more enjoyable. If you ever fancy zipping around Bangkok behind the wheel of your very own jam jar, Andy's yer man. Drum roll for Andy W - the extremely tall gentleman behind Expat Motors.


Harvey Taylor

He's a lecturer at a well-known university. He's about to take the Thai proficiency exam...and he's about to start his own business. He's an interesting fellow.


Duncan Donut

He's terrorized any Thailand discussion board you care to mention and given moderators sleepless nights. Not sure if he'll send Smeg, Domunique or Wolfslayer, but we'll keep the crucifix handy.


Hugh Butler

Give a warm welcome to the extremely likable Mr Hugh Butler, the Academic Director of English First Thailand. I’ve seen Hugh zipping around on the sky-train going from one EF branch to another, dripping in sweat, but all for a good cause – keeping the English First empire running smoothly.


George Bowman

If you're confused about the definition of an 'international school' and want to know about the ups and downs of working in one, then George is your man


Al Lock

Al Lock has been one of Bangkok’s leading corporate training consultants for many years and has a track record to prove it. He’s admired and respected by much of the Thai HR and training community and known as a man who delivers what he promises. Always a firm believer in ‘quality costs money’ Al climbs into the ajarn.com hot seat to talk about corporate English language training.


Alice Peel

What's it like being single, female, and in Bangkok? Alice took the plunge and decided that teaching English in Thailand was what she really wanted to do.
