I've been communicating with Alec Peeples on Twitter for quite some time. What I find most interesting is that he's taught at schools in both rural Thailand and in Bangkok so he's an ideal man to discuss the pros and cons of each. Let's put him in the ajarn hot seat and have a proper chat. Take it away Alec.
Suman and I worked together for a number of years at a Bangkok language school but sadly lost contact (as you do) Then on a Friday afternoon on Sukhumwit Road, we bumped into each other, decided to go for a beer or two and to share some memories. I was both surprised and delighted to learn that 'Shooey' was now making a name for himself in the movie industry. This was definitely a topic for the ajarn hot seat. Lights. Camera. Action!
Let’s put Dave Wilson in the ajarn hot seat. Dave is probably one of the most outspoken blokes on Twitter. He’s a man who never pulls his punches. He’s also a teacher in Bangkok so I bet there’s plenty he wants to get off his chest. I’m just going to poke him with a stick.
Teacher resource websites can be a valuable tool for any TEFLer. Ajarn.com talks to Bangkok-based university teacher, Paul Adams, the brains behind Teach-This.com.
Paul Maglione is the co-founder of Entertainment Learning and English Attack! Ajarn puts Paul in the hot seat to talk about the 'gamification' of on-line English language learning, the future for e-learning websites and traditional paper textbooks - and lots more!
Although I’m no photography enthusiast, I recently stumbled upon a website with a portfolio of some of the most incredible Thailand photos I’d ever seen. I delved a bit deeper and found out the photographer lived in Nakhon Nayok in rural Thailand, ran his own photography workshops, has many published works available on Amazon - and has worked in some of the most amazing and remote locations in the world. Ajarn is honored to chat with American photographer, Lee Craker.
I’m a massive football fan (Manchester United since you ask) but I’m constantly embarrassed about my lack of knowledge when it comes to the beautiful game in Thailand. I know virtually nothing about it. So I’m going to have a chat with Dale Farrington, who runs an independent English language Chonburi Football Club website, and get myself an education. He’s a man who knows things.
Let’s talk to a very nice lady by the name of Kathryn Webb. Kathryn is the TEFL course trainer for Samui TEFL on the island of Koh Samui. She has a degree in psychology and a wealth of experience in the field of English language learning, both as a trainer and a language school owner.
It’s been almost four years since we interviewed Phil Dunne, The Managing Director of Island TEFL on Koh Samui. Back in July 2010, Phil had in fact just purchased the company and had some very ambitious plans. Let’s find out how life’s treating him?
Back in June of 2013 we interviewed Andrew Fleming, who had opened a new English language school in Udon Thani. The first year is tough for any business so we were eager to find out how things were progressing.
