Back in the groove

How do Filipino teachers feel on returning home from teaching abroad?

Last month I shared with you my findings about the numerous reasons why many Filipino English teachers in Thailand have started returning to their country, the Philippines. This time, let us see what our Filipino friends have to say after staying in Thailand for 5-10 years and for settling back in their motherland.


Wages and discrimination

Postbox letter from pinoyguy

Here's a fact, almost anywhere in the world you will find a Filipino worker. There are 2.2 million Filipinos around the world working in various occupations, and why? That's because we can read, write, speak or even sing better in the English language


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.


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
