15,000 baht a month is degrading

Postbox letter from Loy

Filipinos buy food, rent apartments and pay bills and we even send money back to our loved ones. How far do you think 15,000 goes?


Whatever happened to the shopping mall teacher?

Teaching for 300 baht an hour as the rest of the world enjoys itself

They are the shopping mall English teachers - gliding like pale, undernourished phantoms amid the hordes of weekend Thai shoppers. The main reason I empathize with the shopping mall teacher is because I was once one myself. I know how desperate and soul-destroying it can be.


Maximum respect

Postbox letter from Derek

I really respect the people that come to Thailand and get jobs working in schools to help students learn English. I've worked these types of job in the past and know that I've made a difference in the lives of many of the students that I've worked with.


How low can we go?

Postbox letter from Martin Chilvers

Ads for low paying schools

Postbox letter from Paymonger

300 baht an hour is daylight robbery?

Postbox letter from James Phillips

Say no to schools paying low rates

Postbox letter from Ken

Should ajarn.com pull the plug on those schools that are offering teachers a measly 200 baht an hour?
