    I am a qualified teacher of English and am experienced in teaching it in Thailand. I find it amusing to see the advice given by some of the resident cretins here, most of whom have never taught anything and struggle with their own standards of literacy. I imagine it must be due to the alcohol. They feel obliged to post on every thread even though they are mostly clueless about everything. "Knowing four fifths of fuck all" is the expression that springs to mind.

    He did a CELTA on an evening course in Wales and thinks it makes him an authority on teaching.

    I've tried explaining to him that it's just a 'bottom rung' qualification, but he's too much of a dick to get it.

    Yes, he has a proper CELTA and has taught Thais, Koreans, Japanese, Portuguese, Russians, Chinese, Poles and have been sorely tempted to teach the vast hordes of semi-literate English who abound here.

    He went through 3 jobs in 9 months. He hardly had time to get to know his students or colleagues let alone venture into professional development.

    We've all worked with at least one of these unfortunates.

    They're often utterly convinced that they are classroom catnip.

    .... and far too good to do 'useless' stuff like lesson planning.

    Please do not disturb this man. Isn't it enough for you that he is demented ? Stop teasing him. Dirty Dog once accused me of being Chinese. Just saying, innit.

    Are you well-acquainted with HarryBarracuda, on the form? He also has an obsessively bigoted disdain for the Chinese;...

    ...a people who brilliantly dismantled the arrogant 300+ year-old British Colonial Empire (in Asia), in less than 25 years...
    To like them (the Chinese) not...is your right! To respect them not,...is counter-productive denial and sheer stupidity...
