Welcome to my blog!

My name is Stuart G. Towns. As a way of introduction, I think my current Twitter profile blurb sums up my life in 160 characters:

Left USA for TH 11+ years ago. Now teaching, studying for a Ph.D. in Applied Linguistics and trying to help my fellow farang learn Thai at http://its4thai.com

For the first 10 years or so of living in Thailand, I kept a blog of my experiences as a wide-eyed foreigner living in the Land of Smiles. Most of those blog posts were written using Moveable Type, and can be accessed at sgtowns.com/index-mt.html. These days, I mostly post here about what I am learning as I work on a Ph.D. in Applied Linguistics.

I hope that you find something interesting in these pages. And please feel free to contact me. I am “sgtowns” pretty much everywhere!
