Can't see any of those teachers affording the $100k insurance, period testing and paying for their quarantines as teachers usually not that flush with cash to say the least...

So how did these 165 Filipino teachers get approved?.....And why are 3,000 farang teachers waiting?.......I would speculate most Filipino teachers would be less able to jump through all the hoops and

I guess the Covid insurance $100,000 requirement has gone with all the other crazy schemes.???

Ahem... The New English. 😂😂😂


Yes but but British English was never European English and will never be American English. Nice graphic though. Australian, New Zealand and Canadian English may just be passable though.

apparently you are wrong. The Filipino teachers are here and just followed all the rules equal to farang. 

Maybe they are just more smarter and on top of the game? 

The companies in the Philippines who arrange these contracts charge a LOT of money and they possibly paid all the upfront costs. 

It is possible the Philippines government assisted too as Overseas workers are extremely important to the economy.

its interesting, right? the farang really gets nasty when non westerners (fellow asians like Chinese and now Filipinos)  are allowed in Thailand before The White Man.


Filipino teachers are too poor to pay for the insurance, they are too stupid and barely can speak or teach English, etc.


Its laughable. 

Or maybe they are just stating facts? Its getting a tad tiresome reading about anything said about non white people in a negative way MUST be racist. Please grow up and stop getting your panties in a twist for nothing

With a lot of people losing their jobs here in Thailand due to COVID. Both Thais and foreigners. I am surprised that there is such a demand for schoolteachers as surely a lot of people won't be able to afford the international school fees this coming year

1) Not everyone in Thailand is poor and are on the scrapheap. Those in well paid jobs will not have been affected by covid. Not all jobs for Thais rely on tourism
2) Maybe many school teachers got into new jobs when the schools closed because of covid and have decided to remain in those new jobs

I wouldn't want to be taught English by an Australian or Southern State American I can hardly understand. Apart from that being a NES doesn't make you a teacher. You need to have a proper command as well as knowledge of the language as well as an exceptional vocabulary. Plus ideally a teachers certification or BE. Not really what these begpacker "teachers" recruited at Khao San Road bring to the table but hey at least they have an Australian/Canadian/US passport. 😄

Sorry, but many cannot understand the thick accents of those from the north of England, not to mention lreland or' Scotland. So, to say that an Australian accent is not acceptable is ridiculous. Maybe you are a Brit thus, you can understand them..... Other people cannot!!!

I'm a British person ethically English. I find Philippine people in general speak English phonetically good. Water is water not Wara or Warda as the Americans pronounce it or words beginning with TH pronounced with the phonetic sound of D when used in a word. Dhis, Dhat, Dhese and Dhoes.


You make a wonderful advertisement for the superiority of a British education.

What do filipino teachers teach in Thailand? Thanks 


They teach something called "filienglish". Super useful, if your kid wants to e.g. become a travelling singer.
