Who's insulting who?

Postbox letter from Lucie

We are all free to choose what jobs we apply for, and those of us lucky / well-organised enough to have a teaching degree or plenty of experience can choose to apply only for the better-paid jobs, confident that we'll get offered at least one of them.


Not over at 60

Postbox letter from Rob

Postbox letter from

Low wages

Postbox letter from Marcus

A three to six month training course is not closely equivalant to the years of sacrifice and study it takes to receive a degree in education.

Postbox letter from Ronald

Unemployable at age 60

Postbox letter from Kevin O'Donnell

It seems that it is almost impossible for me to gain another teaching position in Thailand (in government schools and universities) as I have recently turned 60


Clouds of smoke

Postbox letter from Fair go

Surely there must be the element in institutions where English is taught for profit in Thailand, that they want to adorn their business prospectus with a young and handsome or beautiful white face.
