Postbox letter from David
I understand that you make your living by selling advertising to several agencies and schools that curcumvent the law by using bribery and corruption.
The new possibility of getting a teacher licence upcountry
Postbox letter from John Penney
Recently I inquired whether Ramkamhaeng would be willing to offer their weekend progam in Khon Kaen if there were sufficient numbers. Their response was yes, they will do it if we can find 14 people willing to commit.
Any truth in the rumors?
It's about time we analyzed what the bar-stool experts are saying
There seem to be a lot of rumors floating around these days about how the teacher licensing requirements set forth by The Teachers Council of Thailand have changed.
Studying for an online degree
What are your options if you need to get a degree pdq
I know a few foreign teachers who never finished their Bachelor Degree and they are a little stressed out about that fact, vis-à-vis the (not so) new teacher licensing regulations from The Teachers Council of Thailand.
What do Thai students think of us?
Straight from the horses's mouth
I wondered if our Thai students really had a true picture of the salaries we earn, the hardships we face, and the hoops we have to jump through?

Will I need a degree to teach in Thailand?
A question that will rage forever and a day.
Ajarn.com asks just how many teachers are teaching with fake credentials. Will schools employ teachers without a degree? And does a degree even make you a better teacher?

Surely not.
