    I usually don't post on this sub-forum, (because it's totally a different color) but...

    Coincidentally, or not.

    Tonight sitting Soi side swilling beer Leo on tap, a foreign guy walks up.

    Now dollars to durian I knew he was either gonna ask where was the shit restaurant Cabbages and Condoms is OR where freelance bar The Den is. I mean that's all that's on the Soi I live on other than indian owned GIANT apartments which could house a small thai village.

    No, instead he regales us (as in me and the thaiz I'm sitting in-n-amongst) with a tale of how he teaches engrish here. How he's living the dream on 1000 US dollars a month blah-blah-blah.

    Now this guy had such a thick French accent, that even when I was watching his mouth, I could barely understand a word he was saying.

    If that is who's teachin' to these people, no wonder they suck at engrish.

    It made me remember why I always say, "fuck the french"; especially the gurlz with that long armpit hair!

    Not worked with any teachers in Thailand but met a couple.

    The first one I met got married to a women half his age at the same office as the wife and I on the same day.

    His first words where "watch those two coppers over there waiting to fine people for dropping cig butts on the floor" outside the registry office.

    He invited us to celebrate are weddings at his bar that night.

    That evening we caught a taxi to the address it was on Soi4!!!

    He told me his life story in 10 minutes about working with 18 year old female students all day and coming back to his bar and 25 year old wife. He was ex-forces as well.

    Why this guy got married was beyond me.

    He proudly boasted all his retirement/ wp/non o visas in his passport, then proceeded to throw up on the pool table, this was a common occurance according to his nearest and dearest.

    I only taught for two years and have been trying to figure out if any of them were strange:

    * One dude claimed to like to lick the bum of gogo girls before sticking in a rose. Other teachers claimed to have seen him do this.

    Have no pictures so I guess it never really happened.

    True Blood isn't porn.

    it's a (silly) TV show about vampires that was on HBO a few years back. you can debate the appropriateness of watching it in a school/workplace i suppose, but try to reduce the hyperbole.

    Ray, google "True Blood Sex Scenes" and see if any of that is appropriate in any context in any school.....

    Yep, that's me. I'm a religious freak. That's why I'm against teachers watching simulated sex on their computers in a staffroom at school.

    I know it's old fashioned standards and that there's people like you that support teachers watching soft core porn while at work. I'll try and be more broad minded like you.

    True Blood , that is definitely hard core porn, thank God you saved this other teachers arse by deleting this filthy content, and thank God the cops didn't catch you with a copy.
    Oh, The Lord , lives and takes care of us, praise Him.

    Well this character here takes some beating .Must have passed out as leading broom pusher somewhere and made his way here.

    Now if this person is indicative of an English teacher here in Thailand we can fully understand why the average Thai is shy to speak English.

    Listen to the narration, read the passage made by the ''teacher.' What a fiasco, no wonder teachers here have so many hoops to jump through and still Thai students struggle with their English.

    Module is for you tolisten to an nativeEnglish person from England.
    It helps you to understand the sounds correctly and with different sentences.This module is the phrasal verb Break.
    If you want to have a copy of my C.Ds you can e.mail me on ********@gmail.com. plus i also make videos for other peopleandproofreading as well please listen and let me know with your comments.

    Also, note the spelling of ''before'' at the 4.10 mark in the clip. Note at 5.18 passage number 8, the question that ends with a full stop when a question mark should have been used.

    Also look at the request made for employment by this character.

    It's one idiot.

    Why on earth would it be 'indicative' of anything?

    There will be an idiot or more from your profession on YouTube too
    Btw - because you can watch it on your computer that doesn't actually mean he works where you reside, sharp chap.

    Cyrille.

    He works at our local school, hence the clip demonstrates the fact that he is part of a flawed system.

    Thankfully our children do not attend that school the only one left of school age is now in vocational school, or tech as we used to call such establishments in my young days.

    So be a good fellow and think before you type your next critique.

    Well, you might have actually mentioned he works at your local school.
    You also somewhat oddly typed one sentence twice, the latter part of your post has been copy pasted from ajarn and your link doesn't work.


    Apart from that....good job.

    I am no expert in the cyber world cyrille ,sorry if I was a trifle abrasive to you and yes I was directed to the ajarn site by my son who saw the clip.

    I feel that people like the teacher concerned should be exposed for what they are not. I.E. teachers.

    Con men and con women, failures in other countries who come here and then repeat their actions all over again

    Scott, 90% of the textbooks from Cambridge, Oxford, Longman, etc, are virtually identical to that; written by professors in English, Education and Linguistics. I kid you not...

    Having listened to the monotonous droning of a village idiot who poses as a teacher and then read that which he wrote, it proves yet again that really Thailand is the refuge of the sexpat dross of the world.

    The sad part is that those decent teachers who are here are judged by the yardstick of the Kevin character.
    Live your life like you're going to die tomorrow.

    Agreed - he's talking complete nonsense I'm afraid.
