Nov 2, 2018 - Final class - morning class

A lot of administrative types in this class. There was a major problem in that many were working during an audit period and only attended sporadically.One day there may be 20 people in the class and the next 5. Very hard to plan and to build a base to expand on. The main objective was to get the employees to practice speaking as most had a basic knowledge but had no practice. Very difficult to measure success. I did put in some serious hours preparing lessons but many hours went out the window when only a couple of people showed up.

Oct 2, 2018 - Classroom

Contracted to teach for 3 days a week for 4 weeks. One two-hour morning class and one two-hour afternoon class I had a very modern classroom with an Audio Visual setup. I found that in the short period of time that I had, I would type in English into the Google Translate computer program and the students could follow me as the image was transmitted to the large screen. No time to follow the protocol that "only English is to be spoken".

Jan 30, 2011 - Chachoensao.

30 January. After about one hour’s trip, we arrived to Chachoensao, a small town just outside of Bangkok. The attraction here was a visit of a big temple. Since it was weekend many Thai’s had gathered up for visiting the temple. The traffic around the temple was a little bit chaotic and to find a place to park the car, was not the easiest. Finally we found a place. Since the monks held ceremonies inside, I feared that this visit would take long time. But little bit surprising for me, my company just entered the temple and made a short pray...

Mar 6, 2006 - bye bye Asia

I arrived back in Bangkok late saturday night after a long day of travelling - couldn't believe I was back here already and that it was time to leave Asia. The past 6 weeks or so can honestly be said to have been some of the most memorable in my life. It has been so very special and I've been so lucky to have experienced the most incredible places, people, food, sunsets, beaches, tranquility, fun, laughter and simple joy and sense of freedom anyone could be lucky enough to have. Isabelle, Luang Prabang, Carl, Julie, Lane, Pon Boun, Ian,...

Kim's Sabbatical

Dec 9, 2005 - Long haul back to Bangkok

I had to wait around a bit this morning for my laundry to be done, and then I got a free shuttle bus ride from the guesthouse back to the bus station. I don't usually like taking 1st class transport when I'm travelling (going with the locals is always much more fun), but the next bus to leave was 1st class and I'd have to wait another hour and a half for the next 2nd class one, so I didn't have much of a choice. There didn't end up being a whole lot of difference between the two anyway, as it was still mostly locals. There was a bit more...

Kristy's World Tour!

Jan 11, 2005 - Bangkok 3

ENGLISH TEXT BELOW De nouveau a Bangkok. En transit pour preparer l'Australie. Lire le Lonely Planet, choisir un itineraire pour 1 mois Tasmanie comprise, et puis trouver un billet pour la ville de depart, c'est du boulot ! A priori je pense peut-etre partir de Darwin et traverser la pays du Nord au Sud par le milieu, aller en Tasmanie depuis Melbourne et ensuite partir en Nouvelle-Zelande depuis Sydney. Bangkok est toujours aussi fatigante. Chaleur + pollution + bruit rendent les visites et promenades epuisantes. Alors j'ai change de la...
