Teaching Practice Week with “Teacher A” in the House
After two weeks of repetitive classroom training with ATI, the TESOL trainees set out to various schools in Phuket for a week of teaching practice with real students and creating our own lesson plans. The 38 of us broke into groups of 6 or 7 and gave one thirty-minute lesson everyday to different age groups with a different observer. The first 3 days we went to a school about an hour from Nai Harn.

Wai Not? The Dawg and the Monk
The first two days of my course in Thailand consisted of a tiny Thai woman nick-named Pat who forced me to sing children’s songs in Thai and practice bowing to the king. It was actually really fun and Pat (Thai people go by their nickname so I will go by “Teacher Dawg” in class and it will be completely appropriate) made the sessions very enjoyable and useful. To “wai” in Thai is a form of greeting like shaking someone’s hand or saying “Hello, nice to meet you.” And if you think there’s only one way to wai, you’re wrong.
