Thailand doesn't seem to want me

Postbox letter from Gary

Being fat and brown-skinned in Thailand

The truth about the ESL industry here for guys like me

My advice is to think long and hard before coming to Asia, especially Thailand, to work as an ESL teacher. Keep in mind that recruiters ask for your photo when you apply for the job.


How long is long enough?

You've attended the job interview. You need a yes or no answer.

Once you have attended an interview, what do you think is a reasonable time-scale to wait for either a yes, you've got the job or a no, you haven't? The answer is to always go with your instincts.
