Like I mentioned in a couple of previous posts, I’ve been working in Bangkok as a teacher since I arrived just over a month ago. In this post, I’ll describe my experiences teaching at a Thai private school up until now, and especially transitioning from one grade level to another. It’ll be a bit more focused on my immediate surroundings and routines, rather than broader observations about teaching and being a foreign teacher—I’ll save those thoughts for another post.
Chances are, you’ve been to a 7-Eleven or two in your life. If it was back home in Winnipeg, it was probably pretty small, maybe a little dirty, and more expensive than you’d like. Today, I’m here to tell you that your opinions are all wrong, or at the very least, that they don’t apply here in Bangkok, because 7-Eleven stores here are awesome. Whether you need a snack or a full meal, you’re covered.
I wasn’t feeling very inspired today, so Patricia is taking over with a quick update. Hi guys! It’s me, Pat. I just wanted to quickly come in here and say hi! It is currently 10:30 PM. As mentioned in Chris’ previous blog, we are here in Thailand to teach! I am currently taking university courses in the evening after work. We have been in Thailand for a month now and it has been quite the adjustment.
