    My anti-TEFL school stance justification, and the end of an era

    Feck, it has been 4.5 years since I took on Bruce of TEFL international, then Leigh of T&T (kk) to force some truth about the TEFL scam. I'm not sure if I have been successful, but these days ajarnforum is on 24/7 smegwatch (although with mods like Lily doing it, it's easy to fly over the intelligence radar)



    My reasons? Because I see the teacher forums, i.e. Bangkok Phil, as this guy, self-interested and power hungry magneto, wanting things his own way to maximise his comfort and influence.

    (my apologies to non X-men fans if u don't know him and others )



    Then there is Pyro, or Kenkannif, who is the understudy, the mouthy arrogant knowall kid who wants recognition and glory



    Then there is me, iceman, standing up for decency, extinguishing the burning cars as they fly through the air as thrown by magneto and lit by pyro (or lies and trickery heading towards newbies, as I see it) , then a head-on attack, outsmarting pyro at the last stand.





    Plenty of people on ajarn have joined the kk bandwagon, such as AO, Matthew, Torbek, etc, maybe because they see themselves as the "farang" mutants needing to stand up for themselves in the face of hostility in Thailand?

    They enjoy playing on ajarn and think that everyone benefits, not giving a toss about (or having the intelligence to think about) who actually pays the price due to what goes on behind the scenes to finance the site.

    I always thought of kingwilly as a young guy, how was i to know he was in his 60s, anyway it is not nice or polite to pick on old people and i hope everybody learns from this, it is not big to pick on old age pensioners, so please dont do that on the forum and also show them some respect, I mean they aint got long to live anyway and maybe they will splash out on a big TeakDoor funeral

    I think everyone is well aware that the TEFL certificate is a scam.
    For the price of a course you may as well buy a fake and pocket the difference.
    That the certificate is recognised by the Thai government as a valid teaching credential is the real travesty.
    Why do you waste your time (4.5years) smeg?
    The only difference between saints and sinners is that every saint has a past while every sinner has a future.

    ...so, what does the "end of an era" have to do with this? Does this mean you're finally "over" this and are going to finally put a stop to "debating" this worn-out issue on TD?

    Serious question 'cause I plan to do the ECC Train then Teach program in May. Don't think I'd get a fair answer at Ajarn.
