5 Highlights from Thai TESOL 2014

The 34th Thai TESOL Conference was recently held in Chiang Mai

Thai TESOL is a non-profit organisation that works committedly towards raising the standards of English in schools and universities across Thailand. They do this by cooperating with like-minded organizations, providing professional development, conducting research and organizing conferences.


Notes on the Thailand TESOL conference

An event run and sponsored by self-centered, pompous, and arrogant buffoons

Do these pedantic pinheads at the TESOL conference actually believe that human nature has changed that drastically in the last 50 or 60 years, so as to allow contemporary technology to be used for its intended purpose?

Reflections on the Thai TESOL conference

Okay, I have to admit that there are a number of good, dedicated Thai teachers of English who do make a difference, but there aren’t merely enough. As long as the government keeps teachers paying a pittance there never will be enough.


Negative expectations

And their role in language learning

My turn as an agony aunt for the masses. Compassion is just one of my many virtues.
