    School Slow on Teaching License

    Yes, I prepared all the required papers and documents required, I also made copies of the papers the school needed to provide for my license. It took my school 3 days to make me the required documents. I did all the clerical work, so my boss only had to fill in the paperwork.
  2. I did my teaching diploma with Ifugao (St. Roberts) and the teacher's ethic course at Krusapat (T.C.T.) Then I handed over the paperwork for the license last week. The courses are still be offered by St. Roberts. I don't know if the teachers ethic course is still required.
  3. I was at the t.c.t. yesterday. My coworker received his 2nd waiver. He was told to start working towards his teaching license because this will be his final teaching waiver.

    Education Degree for Teaching Licence

    My question is what options are open to me? I live in Ubon so if there were online courses it would be easier. I am looking for a course which is accepted by Kru Supa and is the cheapest and of shortest duration. This is just for me to stay in Thailand. I am not doing this for employment enhancement I also had the exact problem as stated above. There is nothing offered in Ubon. Last year, I signed up with Ifugao and had to travel to Korat to participate in the course work. I'm told by St. Robert's that they need 15 students to sign up and they would open a class in Ubon.

    How can you prevent anthracnose from attacking your tomato plants? I just pulled out and removed all the tomato plants that were infected. Is there anything else I should be doing?
  7. It appears that the current government is considering its position regarding The Trans-Pacific Partnership trade deal. http://asia.nikkei.com/Features/Trans-Pacific-Partnership/Thailand-giving-serious-thought-to-joining-deputy-prime-minister Much is written about how it will have positive and negative effects on the Thai people. I was wondering what is the viewpoint of ex-pats living in Thailand. Will it help improve our ability to be employed in the kingdom. What happens to laws that restrict foreign ownership to 49%. Will it benefit ex-pats whose home countries are members of the TPP FTA.
  8. I can't believe Thai banks would lend money to someone who is so far in debt.

  13. At least the South Koreans will not allow Thai citizens to buy land in South Korea. The Koreans believe in reciprocity for its citizens.
