    Not a bad base for that
    Around Pattaya would be a better base for him IMHO, fresh air, cheaper accomodation, quite a few International schools for him to work at , Koh Larn, Koh Samet, Koh Chang and Hua Hin via ferry in easy reach for weekends with Swampy and Utapao less than an hour away and cheap- booze, UK food and hoes

    OhOh: Yeah, there is that pressure- with the slight issue being that they are at more kindergarten level than grade 1 or even grade 2; that's going to be the main challenge as far as work in concerned. Speaking of schools in Thailand, I'm at a loss at the bad rap Thai kids get for behavior, ability and general attitude- my classes were great!


    Pattaya is a good call but I am also looking at the suburbs of BKK- plenty of schools there with the added advantage of being close to the city. Lived in Rangsit for 8 years and its location suited me.

    Rangsit?

    That's awful.

    All that pollution and heat....

    Theres a new International school opened this month near Pattaya and the best of them all- Rugby School.

    Its a 20 minute drive from Pattaya so you are away from all the sleaze, whoremongers and sex tourists but its a good place to pop into for shopping and the occasional night out.

    Turns out most of the missionaries just do the lesson in Mongolian, that kinda explains second graders not being able to write their own name

    Good point.


    Haven't looked lately, but if looking to buy a condo to live in, a Pattaya unit should be a great deal given the massive oversupply. Just horrendous if you ever want/need to rent it out.


    And when there's maintenance due to be done but can't because there's no one else living it and paying the annual service fee.

    Top tip. Avoid all international schools in their first two years even if they have Rugby or Brighton in their name. It'll still be a shambles for a while.

    Unless you're desperate then get in there early and cement yourself in.

    I was going to post that earlier.

    They can call it 'Rugby', 'Windsor' or frickin 'MIT', but for the first five years it's to be avoided.

    eg Dulwich, Phuket, where Dulwich UK eventually got so exasperated that they insisted their name not be used anymore.

    Hello

    From the photos you post, Mandaloopy, I know which school you're at. I even know which office you're in.

    Connect with Levi in secondary if you haven't already. He knows what's what around there. Tell him CD sent you. I used to work there.

    And yes - I advise you not to walk around with a Mongolian woman, especially after dark. As long as you're not just another expat trying to fuck anything with a pulse you'll be fine.

    And that pollution? That shit is real. I left 3 years in after going from being a runner to being on an asthma puffer - and I was only running indoors. If you're a smoker and your lungs are fucked anyway, you'll be fine.

    Yep my lungs are fine now.

    I miss UB and Mongolia. It really is an amazing culture. Take as many trips outside the city as you can. Dress for the winter and find some ger camps out in Terelj to spend the odd weekend. Very affordable and always an adventure.

    If you have a skill and want to use it, Mongolia is a very welcoming place. I did a lot of fun photography there.

    Hey Mandaloopy, have you seen the film The Eagle Huntress ? It's about Mongolia and has some great reviews .

    I'm a little concerned about winter, it's 7 degrees today and I am cold to the bone. Hot water has gone out and the heating gets switched on in 10 days. Keeping myself warm by laminating stuff for class. A visit to the black market is on the agenda this weekend for winter clothing, winter appears to be coming early this year. Send a blast of Bangkok air please!

    Make sure you get some genuine fur items, the real traditinal stuff. The hats and coats.

    He is not qualified for a better international school, but has posted he wants to get qualified for that and wants to begin the process. A middle tier international school is not the way to have a teaching career in Thailand.

    PGCEi is accepted in Thailand it would seem, I don't fancy working in Singapore or Hong Kong as the small living arrangements are not to my liking- I like having a bit of garden or at least some land to walk/jog on a compound. The good thing about working in Myanmar and Mongolia has been the experience and now having the cash to pay for a PGCE upfront. I could have never done that from my job in Thailand, even if I loved it.

    That slightly envious feeling I had has somewhat dissipated.
