Look forward to hearing from you guys, pls drop me an email ASAP. Thanks again.

  26. Dear U Soe Lwin,

    I really enjoyed looking at your blog. I visited Myanmar a couple years ago and spent about a week in Mandalay. It is a wonderful city.

    I’m a teacher in the United States and I’m really interested in what it’s like to be a teacher in Myanmar. The students I saw there seemed so polite and respectful of teachers. Do you know any other teachers in Myanmar who write a blog about their experience teaching? I thought reading blogs like that might help me become a better teacher.

    Thanks for your help,

    • Hi Brooke,
      Thanks for dropping in to the blog ! Let me ask around to see if there are any other teachers Burmese or expat blogging and I’ll let you know. I also have an expat on my staff and will ask him if he wants to communicate his thoughts and experiences here with you.

      On your point about the respectfulness ( and sometimes its twin brother : passiveness) of students here , it is still the case for the vast majority but I know a few who are becoming overtly very unruly and a bit gangsterish. Maybe it is a sign of times. And pop culture, rap and baggy pants with in-your-face materialism may have something to do with it too. But rebels without a cause or rebels cos of their own personal circumstances they may be . It’s their own growing up they have to experience and preaching on our part may just make it worse.

      And not too long ago, some of us were like that too rebels, scoundrels and lazy bums although not as self-destructive or blatantly disrespectful. Thank all the gods we came out all right . So let’s just hope they all turn out right and can have a rapport with us teachers sooner rather than later ! I know I may sound idealistic but to be a teacher you got to have a good dose of it and face what comes to you.

      But in the meantime there are plenty students in Myanmar who want to learn and thirst for what we can give them. Let’s hope that they always remain the majority but again that may be asking too much.

      So it might be like : let’s hope the few we can get through too are enough to lead, change and better this world !

      (Please do drop in when you are round these parts again)

  27. please tell me
    I want to attend english speaking class
    but i don’t know what class is good for me
    If you have some idea for me . i am waiting for your idea

  31. Dear U Soe Lwin,

    Your language school looks excellent. I’ve heard good things about you, and reading your blog seems to confirm it 🙂 I gave a workshop in Mandalay last year (2009) via the American Center and am looking to come live and work in Burma for a while this November/December. I thought I’d ask if and when you might be looking for a fresh batch of English teachers. I’m a native speaker and almost fully TEFL certified (incl. Young Learner and Business English). I have a background in art & animation and have teaching experience in those areas. Would love to come and see what you’re doing either way when I’m up there.

    All the BEST,
