Surely a foreign teacher doesn't have to work on the 25th December!
For some reason I had just presumed Christmas Day would be a day off for foreign teachers. It was only around three weeks before the big day that I was reminded that I was expected to be at work.
Days off during the week can be a joy
Bangkok, it must be said, can be pretty nasty on a weekend. There are almost no benefits of having these two days off work compared to taking the days off in midweek. Not that I can see.
