Good point. You are referring to that form of bastardised English that has taken control of spell checkers.

 

I remember once reading a contribution in TVN on this topic that the best English speaking Filipinos go to work in the call centres. The leftovers get to work in countries like Thailand.

Every school. Every director. Every Govt dept. Corruption in Thailand is endemic. Thais actually hate it (except for those on the receiving end) but how can you stop something that starts at the top.

Very true. When i was teaching at an International school, the PI teachers were not allowed to teach English, because of the accent. My experience of visiting the PI was that they believed that everything was American. I had the worlds worst job trying to convince one woman that 'Rod Stewart' was not American.

I would be tempted to say enjoy the climate during the freezing european winters,

 

enjoy the great food, enjoy the water in the pool villas, the genuine or faked smiles all around:crazy:

 

enjoy the fun in buying toys for the house at Home Pro, enjoy pushing the cart at Big C or Tesco,

 

have a fun chat with the laundry lady,

 

educate your young house maids not to put harsh chemicals in the loo that has a sceptic tank

 

and for those into deeper human relations, enjoy the meeow  and the booze:cheesy: and don't expect any better!...

 

and above all, keep yer mouths shut in public places  as big brother's golden angel wings are monitoring thou ole sayings!

Whoever it was that dealt with this bribe needs sorting out.

Such a job should be left to trustworthy educators who have enough sense to ensure that no recordings or videos are being made when managing money transfers!

From my experience with Thai gf who was head teacher at a vocational school it seems as if their is more tea money floating around the school system than there is at the police stations. One example she described to me was western English teachers not having their contracts renewed so they could be replaced with Filipino teachers. The school directors would then receive healthy kickback commissions from the Filipino employment agencies. Gf was p!ssed because she was not on the distribution list.

I am not sure what the order wold be but it seems the top three of the public "service" institutions are:

Police and associated services

Education system

Customs and Excise.

 

Is there any hope that the Thai educational system will introduce ethics studies when those very same institutions are as totally corrupt as the administration, governments and Elites ?  I think not

Same in other countries...even in USA. Jared Kushner, (Pres.Trump's son-in-law)  was accepted into Harvard University despite his low GPA and SAT scores in 1998. This acceptance into the prestigious university occurred a few months after  Jared's father (rich real estate businessman) had donated $2.5 million to Harvard.  "Interesting" coincidence.  

Not an ideal moral example, to be sure, but I trust you cam discern the difference in rationalizing that the benefit to your other students of the endowment will outweigh the damage caused by having an undeserving numbskull in some of their classes. Not really the same thing as putting it into your back pocket (in your vacation pants at your holiday home on supposedly protected land somewhere)!

all that effort for a  diploma that is pretty much worthless outside of  Thailand, and   not much better here.

From the quality of the students it turns out, it appears all the positions/posts are inactive. Except when it comes to meting out corporal punishment and taking bribes.
