Hope for career shifters in Thailand
How can talented teachers overcome a lack of opportunity?
There is a green pasture for teachers in Thailand especially for those who have extra qualifications or skill in accountancy, secretarial science, engineering, call center, computing, and other fields
Advertisements with misleading job titles
Postbox letter from Nathan Busch
I find it rather funny that this school has the idea they can get a difficult-to-fill post filled by advertising for it under false pretenses of another job title
Aren't we flogging a dead horse?
Postbox letter from Nick
I have from time to time read several of the articles post on your website and many are both interesting and good, but at the same time, I think sometimes we are beating the same dead horse over and over and over again without any real value or change
Unbelievable but true.
Postbox letter from Rob
Rejected for a teaching position on the grounds of being a Buddhist!
Why the difficulty?
Postbox letter from billy
Why is it suddenly so difficult to become a teacher in Thailand?
Whites or native speakers?
Postbox letter from Terri
I am fluent in both French and English. My students were told I was French but I always told them I was African - born and raised in France. If you dont like my teaching methodologies, they can bring in another teacher but i am not gonna lie about anything.
Is it doom or gloom?
Is Thailand's TEFL market going to hell in a handbasket?
Job vacancies seem to be down on this time last year and we're hearing stories of some government schools slashing budgets and not being able to take on foreign teachers next term. In addition the corporate job market seems to have hit rock bottom. What do you teachers think?

Teaching English to savages and the great recession
This past July I accepted a job teaching English at a university in Saudi Arabia. I was to teach Saudi males in their 20's and was excited about that opportunity. The tax-free salary of around $3,500 U.S. a month along with a rent-free apartment, return airfare, and long paid holidays didn't hurt either.
There are teaching jobs out there
Postbox letter from Ben Richards
I've just completed my first month at a language centre. I waited for a good job rather than accepting one I wouldn't be happy with and I'm very pleased with my decision. I've earned just over 40k this month, and I am very confident my income will rise in the coming months
