Lee Craker

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.


Dale Farrington

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.


Kathryn Webb

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.


Phil Dunne

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?


Andrew Fleming (update)

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.


Richard Graham

In a recent ajarn blog, our resident Filipino blogger, Benito Vacio, wrote about the success he was having in his classrooms with something called ‘Genki English’. Eager to learn more, we tracked down the main man himself, the founder of Genki English – Richard Graham. And Richard very kindly offered to put himself in the ajarn hot seat.


James Barr

It's always nice to have a chat with someone who has been an English teacher but eventually found work in Asia doing something they are really passionate about. James Barr is such a man. He's the main guy in Thailand for Grasshopper Adventures - a tour company with a difference.


Andrew Fleming

Opening your own successful language school is something many English teachers dream of doing. The dream became a reality for one Englishman and his Thai partner. Andrew Fleming tells ajarn.com the secrets behind making a language school work.


Kattreeya Walker

Well, this is something of a ‘first’ for the ajarn hot seat – our very first interview with a Thai national - Kattreeya Walker to be exact. ‘Katt’ has taught English in Thai schools. She’s run online businesses. She’s lived abroad in The USA. She has plenty of opinions. Honestly, I don’t know where to start.


Stuart Stripling

It's always good to get an interview with guys in the private language school business - the managers or academic directors on the frontline. Stuart Stripling is Managing Director of Insight English on Silom Road in Bangkok. So how are things shaping up for Thailand's private language school market?
