What were our top ten most-read blogs in September 2018?


Here were the top ten Ajarn blogs for September 2018 in terms of reader numbers.


1)  Games for large unruly classes / Geoff Richards - should games always have a pedagogical value? No. Especially not the ones that you use as energy burners and to get students' brains working in English at the start of a class.


2)  Renewing a UK passport in Bangkok / Bangkok Phil - applying for a new passport was actually a very straightforward procedure. However, like many bureaucratic processes in Thailand, advance preparation is key.


3)  Problems with the Thai public education system / Mark Brown - A list of almost twenty issues that certainly need looking at.


4)  Interviewing foreigners / Phil Roeland - During all the years I've spent in Thailand and the rest of South-East Asia I have been approached dozens of times by students armed with questionnaires eager to interview me.
