Katherine Hardy

Katherine Hardy and her partner Rob, both from the UK, jacked in their jobs in the civil service to travel the world and teach English. They slung a few things in a backpack and after seeing a few countries, they both ended up in Chiang Mai. But they've already got itchy feet.


Robyn and Emma

Let's have a natter with not one but two female TEFL course instructors. Both Robyn and Emma are teacher trainers at Chiang Mai University. It's not often I get to chat with two young ladies so rest assured I'll be making this last as long as possible.


Warren Daniels

Warren Daniels, a teacher from the UK, has taught in Thailand for about six years. During that time he's held jobs in half a dozen different schools and opened a successful restaurant. He describes himself as a 'complicated guy'. Hmmmm. Let's pull up a chair and chat with a fellow Brit.


Tom Green

Bangkok-based Tom Green is a qualified secondary school teacher in his native Luxembourg. At the moment, he's interviewing for part-time teaching jobs, but it's hypnotherapy that is very much his first love. Are you feeling sleepy? No? Good. Then let's begin.


Matthew Noble

Matthew Noble wrote several blogs for ajarn.com well over four years ago. This was about the time he celebrated his first anniversary as a teacher in Thailand. Well, Matthew's still here teaching but about to return home to the USA. Let's find out what's happened in the last few years.


Stephen Emge

American Stephen Emge has nothing really to do with teaching English in Thailand, but he's come up with an internet-based idea that just might appeal to a few teachers in Thailand and help them earn a little 'money on the side'


Lucie Redwood

It's often said that Thailand can be a tough place for a female teacher. Well, Lucie Redwood has been here fifteen years already and is more than happy to tell us how she's survived.


Scott Walker

Scott Walker originally came to Thailand for a holiday because of his interest in Buddhism. He then quickly made plans to return here for a longer period. He tried the teaching game for a while, decided it wasn't really for him - and has now started his own business.


Alex Cattle

Alex Cattle is something of an ajarn.com icon. He was the inspiration behind the 'teachers looking for work' page on the ajarn website and like so many other foreign teachers in Thailand, Alex was struggling to find work without a degree certificate. However, good things always come to he who waits. Alex's story is one of personal triumph. It's a story about overcoming the odds.


Patrick Vella

'Edutainment' is a word I have always despised but there's little doubt that bringing drama into an EFL lesson is never going to be a bad thing. Patrick Vella makes a living training teachers on how to use drama in their classroom and demand for his programs is growing fast.
