A selection of articles and blogs that should interest expats in Thailand

Another treasure trove of blog links for Thailand teachers

Hi everyone, it's Peter Clarke, back again with another selection of blogs and articles that I hope will be of interest to teachers working in Thailand or perhaps those who are just living here in this great country.

Thailand teaching stuff - November 2013

More links of interest to teachers in Thailand

I think all bloggers have a duty to make sure that their writing is as factually correct as possible. Before the very first keystroke, a blogger needs to ask themselves a serious question - am I knowledgeable enough about this topic and am I communicating the correct information?


Christians in Chiang Mai

Western followers in Chiang Mai of the Christian God - past and present

When I arrived in Chiang Mai to teach EFL in a Buddhist country back in 1999, I was surprised at the size of the expatriate Christian community here. At that time I knew very little about them and certainly hadn't chatted with any.


Chiang Mai's hot season

The good, the bad and the ugly

I’m sitting writing this blog to the sound of cicadas producing their screeching song outside my window, and the feeling of sweat running down my chest and back, which means to most Chiang Mai people it’s the hot season


The foreign cemetery

Off the beaten track in Chiang Mai

The remains of missionaries, teak company employees, diplomats, soldiers, children, adventurers, teachers and assorted expats from a wide range of countries lie side by side neatly arranged to follow the borders of this small plot of Thai soil that is ‘forever England’.


Dara Academy past and present

The Dara Academy is one of Chiang Mai's largest and most famous schools

To really find out what it’s like working at the Dara Academy, I contacted a couple of old friends who have both taught at Dara for a number of years. Todd Cikraji is American, married to a Thai teacher and speaks Thai fluently. Deborah Baker is also American, and she is one of the few foreign teachers I know who has successfully passed the TCT Exams in order to obtain a permanent Teachers’ License


My Chiang Mai

People, places and events and all things Northern Thailand

I guess for my first blog I should talk about my journey to become a teacher in Chiang Mai. It started way back in 1990 when I travelled from Australia back home to the UK.
