More English camps

Possibly the final instalment of my summer camp trilogy

The nightmare team teacher

The school that once was

Postbox letter from Mr. Greenberg

A well regarded school, a school with a beautifully rich history, is now perceived as something else. Asked about the school’s services, a Thai faculty member, who asked not to be named said, “most of what is happening now is all for show.”


21st century education

A new and exciting approach to teaching
