What happens when you live in Bangkok?

I taught English in Bangkok and it did weird things to me (find out by reading my travel book). I was only there for 7 months though. There’s a great article on Sam in Bangkok called This is what happens when you live in Bangkok which gives a detailed and pretty fun rundown of what happens to you after each year of living in Bangkok.

How TEFL can help you travel the world

Becoming an ESL teacher is a great way to see the world and earn a living. For more info check out this blog titled Want to earn money while travelling abroad? on Travelista Journal, which gives a great insight on how you can earn money while abroad.

Scott Thornbury and CELTA

There’s a very interesting blog here about how Scott Thornbury can publish a book about Dogme, and also write an official CELTA handbook. Geoff’s view on Critic ELT is quite critical, but I like it. Have a read.

How does teaching make you feel?

Marvellous, angry, sad, happy, and burnt out, plus many more. There’s a great read on Oxford University Press  called How does teaching make you feel; well worth a look.

Images in ELT

Have you ever wondered just how suitable images in ELT materials are? I often do, but not absolutely every day. Pete has a much better view on the situation though. Check out his latest post on ELT Planning  titled Problems with images in ELT materials.

Hope that helps.
