Every effort is made to ensure that the information provided is up to date but please note that things can change and the odd thing might be out of date.Before I moved to Thailand and started teaching English in the country, I had been reasonably successful in my professional life.I'd like to think that I am something of a purist, and I am somebody who likes do things properly, but at the same time it is important to me to enjoy what I do and also learn new things.
My experiences teaching in Thailand have been in various capacities.
My first job was in a private language school but after a couple of years in what was a very well run, high-end language school I became somewhat disillusioned with the industry.
I then spent some time away from the industry, funnily enough as a language student myself, studying Thai full-time for 7 months.
I experienced what it is really like to be on the other side, to be a student of a foreign language, something which helped me as a teacher immensely.
I was able to see things through the eyes of a language student and I think that really helped me as a teacher.
I returned to the industry and chose to work in a different sector - as a teacher at a high school.The high school had an international program and I taught in both the regular program and the international program.While teaching at the high school, I was one of two foreign teachers on the staff who volunteered to teach English outside the school kids from poor backgrounds who had never had a chance to study with a native English speaker.Testing content The reason to come here is obvious: beautiful, smoky-crusted pizza with fresh tomatoes and mozzarella.The genius of this pizza starts with the crust, which is black and crispy on the underside (with pleasant, slightly bitter overtones), but gives way to a wonderfully soft, yeasty interior.Signature toppings like pepperoni and homemade meatballs, keep locals coming back.
