The moral and social environment in which our youth used to live and get educated three-to-four generations before can now hardly be said to have any major similarity with the modern educational, social environment.

I am a scrabble game freak and I make no pretence about. In point of fact the game is about the only one I enjoy playing without getting tired of it. When I was younger I used to play with a couple of my friends sometimes far into the middle of the night. That was when I had friends and acquaintances living in the same city with me. Honestly we used to make a great game out of it. The competition was really fierce and we really enjoyed it. That was when the quality and quantity of my vocabulary started going up on the ascendancy until it has improved to the present level. However we have all since moved on. Careers and marriages have separated us all.
These days without the Luxury of friends and acquaintances to play with, I have resorted to downloading the game onto my laptop. Right now I have graduated to playing with the champion having passed the level of playing with the expert and the pro. I usually inflict defeat on the champion just as it does to me. My dream is to very soon ...

Qualifications for TEFL jobs, teaching English in Thailand
Teaching English is a popular way to live and work in Thailand, and many are employed here, legally or otherwise, in TEFL jobs. In 2014 the criteria have become more strictly enforced and not everyone qualifies to come and simply teach.
Like most countries, the ministry of education in Thailand maintains specific minimum qualifications to license teachers, Thai or otherwise, before they can step into a classroom. Afterall, they are fussy about who they allow to teach the future generations.
Thais need to have completed a degree and a one-year teaching diploma to qualify for teaching licenses, however provision is made for temporary licences for those undergoing internships or to fulfill demand in certain situation.
