Seeking places to buy teaching materials
Postbox letter from Tom Benjamin
I am looking for places to purchase English teaching materials for all core subjects.
Attractive teacher wanted - must have GSOH
How difficult is the foreign teacher dating game?
In a country brimming with physically attractive people, why shouldn't a foreign teacher seek a loving, happy relationship with one of their own kind?

All it takes is a little bit of organisation and you have an event where female teachers can socialize.
How to win friends?
Postbox letter from Renee
I've been here seven years and found itr difficult to meet female friends.
Meeting kindred spirits
All and all, the guys (and gal) at STUC are really great. We share our hopes and dreams, our humiliation and shame, and sometimes tips on schools that will hire even if you can’t afford a necktie for the interview. I don’t think people should make fun or look down on us. I mean, you wouldn’t laugh at someone who had cancer. Being stuck in Thailand is like a disease - nobody chooses it.
Fresh off the boat
Newbies. Don't you just love 'em
I've seen it all before. We all have. These young, naive 20 something newbies, these walking erections with a backpack, who get off the airplane at Don Muang with nothing but a goofy grin and a 42 work vocabulary, and magically land that 40,000 Baht a month job te aching English, while the rest of us, with our credentials, our education, and our experience are left wondering where the good teaching jobs have gone.
