Aren't we flogging a dead horse?

Postbox letter from Nick

I have from time to time read several of the articles post on your website and many are both interesting and good, but at the same time, I think sometimes we are beating the same dead horse over and over and over again without any real value or change


Why the difficulty?

Postbox letter from billy

Why is it suddenly so difficult to become a teacher in Thailand?


Whites or native speakers?

Postbox letter from Terri

I am fluent in both French and English. My students were told I was French but I always told them I was African - born and raised in France. If you dont like my teaching methodologies, they can bring in another teacher but i am not gonna lie about anything.


Teachers rights

Know your rights as a teacher in Thailand

I have always been amazed by how little most foreigners and Thai people know about Thai Labor Law. Why wouldn’t you want to know what your rights are under the law?


Scam warning

Here's a well-used teacher scam that's doing the rounds.

Be careful. The world is full of teacher scams like this one. If you hear of any more then please let us know about them.


Barbarians in the building

Teaching English to savages and the great recession

This past July I accepted a job teaching English at a university in Saudi Arabia. I was to teach Saudi males in their 20's and was excited about that opportunity. The tax-free salary of around $3,500 U.S. a month along with a rent-free apartment, return airfare, and long paid holidays didn't hurt either.


There are teaching jobs out there

Postbox letter from Ben Richards

I've just completed my first month at a language centre. I waited for a good job rather than accepting one I wouldn't be happy with and I'm very pleased with my decision. I've earned just over 40k this month, and I am very confident my income will rise in the coming months


Four times the salary of a local Thai?

What a load of bullshit!

Nothing irks me more than reading that statement and you see it all over the web wherever the topic of teaching in Thailand is discussed or promoted. It’s a statement that’s both grossly misleading and wildly inaccurate.


If you're white, you're alright

Postbox letter from Spectre

I stopped attaching my picture to my applications and instantly started receiving more responses.


Ajarn.com supporting ageism?

Postbox letter from K.Dempsey

Surprisingly, a respected top university in Thailand was one of the first to promote this kind of blatant prejudice against teachers. Someone there has decided for some reason that anyone over 50 is braindead and incapable of teaching English to undergraduates!
