Education in The Philippines

Postbox letter from george graham

A quick google of world/asian/asean rankings will show that the education system of the Philippines is regularly placed below that of Thailand


Filipino teachers are underpaid

Postbox letter from Mike

I have and will argue until the end of time that most Filipino teachers are under-paid.


Filipino teachers are worth more

Postbox letter from Pinoyguy

If we Filipinos continue to take on these jobs with low salaries, without even bothering to haggle for an increase, we are making the Filipino teacher's value in this country lower.


Barrio Fiesta in Thailand

A day of celebrations for all Filipinos living in Bangkok and beyond.

Were you at the Philippine Embassy in Thailand last June 8, 2014? Did you have fun in the "Barrio Fiesta" (village festival)?


Applying for the OEC certificate

Information and advice for Filipino workers abroad.

The Overseas Employment Certificate (OEC) is a 'must have' certificate for all Filipino Overseas Foreign Workers (OFWs) on leave/vacation returning to their country of work.


A costly trip

Problems that Filipinos have when leaving the country

On my 4th trip to Thailand last May 1st 2013, I was offloaded at Clark International Airport in The Philippines. I passed through this airport because of an attractive promotion offered by a certain airline. I didn't know that I would encounter a more costly trip instead


Can't Speak English?

Postbox letter from Pablo Gravoso

I am sure that my students will sooner or later become school administrators. I hope that they will not look at the color of the skin when they hire ESL teachers. They can hire whites, blacks or Asians. It doesn't matter. What is important is that they should look at the qualifications.


The darker the skin, the smaller the wage?

Postbox letter from Lyndsay Anne Cabildo

I know for a fact that since the native English speakers have spoken English since the time they were born, they think they will do better as an English teacher.


The longer I stay here

Postbox letter from Marvin

The longer I stay here the more I realize this country is unlikely to change. Now I am not saying that old teachers are the best teachers but I know teachers who have been here for 8 or 9 years and all their experience seems to be pushed aside for a younger crop who are to be fair more handsome and maybe have more energy.


The last exit

A group of teachers wanted to make a last visa run to Laos extra special

Teachers combined business and pleasure to experience a most memorable night in Vientiane. As one teacher said, "When I go to Laos, I shoot two birds with one stone. I get my visa and have a good time as well"
