    None. I just like to give taxexile shit for it owing to his insufferable and comically absurd hypocrisy in denigrating others when he taught 'business and scientific English' or whatever it was.

    My ploblem with tefalers is that they are taking all the best looking Thai/Chinese chicks while us mere mortals have to settle for women from Isaan and other nether regions off Thailand.

    If you recently got married, why does it matter how many available girls or ladyboys are left?

    Foreign inmates should teach English in prisons: Minister

    Justice Minister Somsak Thepsuthin suggested the Corrections Department could consider using foreign inmates to teach English to fellow prisoners to supplement their occupational training.


    Mr Somsak floated the idea on Monday when he and Labour Minister M.R. Chatu Mongol Sonakul signed an agreement to step up cooperation between the Justice and Labour ministries to address the problem of ex-convict unemployment.

    "Hey Mr we have the best and cheapest Jet Skis for hire, very good price for you"

    Seconded.



    Quick comment though. Isn't judging a person by their occupation stereotyping?


    hmm... "all TEFLers are __________" (go ahead - you fill in the blank)

    ...are not stuck to just classroom or tutoring now. Online teaching has made it more viable as a decent way to earn a living without actually having to wear pants, for a change.

    And that is exactly why the standard of English in Thailand is so fucking low. When they finally get it through their thick heads that you need *teachers* to teach English, and not long haul truckers from Crewe things might start to improve.
