Thai teacher tourism

Is this a good thing or not?

There is obviously a steady supply of foreigners who are happy to pay for the experience and companies who can make good money from this business.


Wasted teachers

Postbox letter from George Bowman

About two kilometers away sits a rural school lacking in funds and teachers. And I can’t go there and help. For free.


Volunteering at a Thai children's home

Taking care of 30 lively kids at a Chumphon orphanage

A lovely Thai couple, P'Nui (Mama) and P'Nong (Papa), run the orphanage. They were exceptional Thais not only because they were Christians, but also because they were so warm and friendly. I was made part of the family straight away


At home with Pee Tim

An interesting Thai homestay / work exchange

Peetim's ESL homestay offers volunteers lodging, food, laundry, transportation, and Thai culture in exchange for teaching English in her government and private schools.


The place to be

A special place to learn English where students are always made welcome

Have you ever heard of a place in Thailand where English lessons in conversation, reading, writing and grammar are offered free of charge for Thai children and adults? Who do you think owns this center? Is it a Thai? an American? a British person perhaps?


More Dwight and Goodwill to all men

Over the previous few months I’ve been accused of many things

The star of last week's LIBeL is still hounding me - a few more insightful questions from Dwight in NYC. Plus re-training hookers - Goodwill Bangkok, a charity based in, not surprisingly, Bangkok - offers free training courses for girls looking for a way out of the bar scene.
