Work officially started yesterday, Monday. Unofficially, it’s meant a lot of sitting around for new teachers, waiting for the bureaucractic wheels to turn.
There are a few long-term NES ( Native English Speaking ) teachers there, which is a good sign. Among the Nationalities a troupe of Filipinos, a couple of Americans, at least two from the UK, and a couple of suspected South Africans. And me.
I signed the teaching contract today, expect to get my classroom timetable and start working with my Thai support teacher tomorrow.
