In My OPINION
14 Dec 2010 : The pilots in Wing 23 in Udon Thani are once again "beefing up" their English-language skills to cope with the international scope of their duties.
14 Dec 2010 : The Montessori Academy Bangkok is a trilingual, early learning centre for children 1.5 to 6 years of age, and as the name implies, bases its curriculum on the pedagogic method developed by the renowned Italian physician and educator, Maria Montessori (1870-1952).

Teaching with HEART
14 Dec 2010 : Most teachers know that being firm yet loving towards students is not as easy as it sounds, and that it not taught in teacher-training programmes either. The two acts are inherently paradoxical. Attempting to do both at the same time may communicate inconsistency and lead to further confusion in students. If they are not careful, teachers may give the impression that it is okay to be "moody" and to be driven by impulses. This is not what "being firm, yet loving" is all about.
14 Dec 2010 : International School Bangkok is inviting academically inclined students from financially challenged families to apply for its special scholarship programme. The process is completely anonymous and is sanctioned by the Office of the Basic Education Commission.
THE CHINGCHOK Hunter
14 Dec 2010 : The human body is an amazing and complex thing, but most people, for good reasons, have only ever seen a fraction of it - the outside. But inside, it is a completely different story. You are a complex group of systems made up of organs that are, in turn, made up of different tissues that themselves are made up of cells.
THE WRITE Stuff!
14 Dec 2010 : Two pronouns that may cause confusion or raise questions on how and when to use each properly are "who" and "whom". To begin, it is important to recognise the difference between subjects and objects in order to know whether to use "who" or "whom". You use "who" when referring to the subject of a clause, and "whom" when referring to the object of a clause. Let's look at some examples that can help to provide additional clarification.
10 Dec 2010 : Problems of Basic Education Quality
30 Nov 2010 : One of the aims of the second stage of the education reform process is to enable Thais to become quality lifelong learners. This involves the creation of quality schools, the presence of suitably qualified school administrators and teachers, the provision of education opportunities for all, and the participation of all the parties in the education sphere.
