Rob Donellan

If you've ever wondered what a kids summer camp or weekend camp is all about then here's an interview with one of Thailand's best organizers of such events. The campfire burns for our main man Rob Donnellan.


Anthony the Exiled Gooner

Exiled Gooner certainly did his Thailand apprenticeship – eight long years in all - before heading off to Bangladesh and now Indonesia and pastures new. Now fully settled, he’s turned his attention to the Indonesian version of ajarn.com and to tell us all that the grass really can be greener on the other side.


Andy Gray

Andy Gray (not the Sky Sports soccer pundit) talks about his ten years in Thailand and why moving to teach in Taiwan was definitely the right move.


Richard Kirtland

Now here's a guy worth reading. He worked at the prestigious Harrow School in Bangkok, but still felt that there was a danger of stagnating and becoming just another part of the Bangkok TEFL crowd. So it was back to the UK for a PGCE.


Olivier Vilayphiou

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.


Ajarn Denny

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.


Teacher Lindsay

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 Rogers

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?


Sir Gregory

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 Brown

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.
