It was a sweet November for me when I got it, i mean the teaching post  in Uttaradit. My friend and I made some few calls and fortunately they returned a ring too. Another journey unfolds the moment it happened and I was so glad it did. I became once again, a member of a teaching workforce.

I had a clear look and experience of doing these stuff before. I meant is the teaching and learning process. But it was a bit different this time. I need to tweak on things like dealing with students who are just in the beginning phase in speaking English as their second language and also some sort of adjustment in dealing with foreign teachers. It was nevertheless, fun and challenging

Anuban Schools, to be in particular, are just like most schools in Philippines. Public schools that are run by government.

Thailand has a great demand for native and non-native English speakers. English Programs are included in their curriculum for they look forward for mastery of the universal language.

It was so pleasant to hear from the School Director that he did get his doctorate degree in the Philippines as we were in the middle of the interview portion. He mentioned something about Filipino's hospitality which he said pretty much like Thai culture.

The school envisions a curriculum that so flexible and for that, they included programs where students are exposed immediately to most of their academic subjects both in Thai and English.

Since year 2003, the school started their Mini English Program and it was largely for student to be in a more challenging atmosphere when learning. The outcomes were obviously good and positive; the skills were so evident among students in bilingual classes. 

The school had been nominated and had won prestigious awards before like "The Best School" to name one. Their untiring support and teaching styles really did pay off.

Ever heard of Malcolm Gladwell?

He is a Canadian writer famous for his best selling books. One of which was the "Outliers". Throughout his book, he repeatedly mentioned that it would took a total of around 10,000 hours in order to master a specific or a complete task and be successful.

For me, the school had proven and had accomplish a favorable time and did such a great job. I'm proud to be in the team... :)
