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.


Gill Morris

Gill Morris is a British teacher who has taught English in Thailand on and off for several years. But having moved to Bangkok, Gill discovered she enjoyed nothing more than exploring the city and discovering its ‘hidden side’. And as a result she’s just published a fabulous book on the topic of Bangkok’s European heritage.


Matthew Noble

We first put Matthew in the ajarn hot seat almost five years ago. At that particular time, he was about to move back to America with his Thai wife after six years as a teacher in Thailand. Matthew always came across as a very dedicated and serious teacher and I was eager to catch up with him to find out how life had panned out for him since our first chat.


Jody Houton

“A Geek in Thailand” could well be the most enjoyable book I have ever read about this country – and trust me, I’ve read a few. The man behind ‘Geek in Thailand’ is British journalist, Jody Houton. Let’s talk about the man himself and how the book came together.


Benito Vacio

Anyone who reads the blogs from our resident Filipino blogger, Ben Vacio, will appreciate what a dedicated teacher he is - but what do we NOT know about him? Well, he’s written a book or two for starters.


Ellen Tomlinson

Ellen recently spent some time traveling and teaching in Thailand (as well as a lot of other places) and she’s using many of her experiences to launch a stand-up comedy career back in England. The Thailand material is going down well with comedy club audiences and it’s getting big laughs. I have been a huge stand-up comedy fan for many years. I’m looking forward to this one!


Tamara Johnston

I’d like to give some publicity to an amazing lady by the name of Tamara Johnston. Tamara is an Australian teacher working in Songkhla. However, her main passion is helping and saving Thailand's street dogs. As a huge dog lover myself, this was one hot seat interview I just had to do.


Nicola Jayne (Cola)

Let's talk to a nice young lady teacher (yes, the job has its perks) Cola has been teaching in Thailand for four years and currently works at a kindergarten in Thailand's deep south. She lives with her Thai partner and one-year old son. She also puts together some great short videos on living and teaching in Thailand.
