    Riddle me this brother can you handle it
    Your style to my style you can't hold a candle to it
    Equinox symmetry and the balance is right

    Its so hard that way. AUA is still way cheap, and the friend can meet some more friends. Sorry to push it but I still do believe it after all these years.

    5 days a week and hour a day for 6 weeks, and you gotta talk. Level 3 and the guy will be so into it. :smile:

    When I was learning English, I have to say I find text books really boring. Instead, I read alot of children book, then moving on to novels etc. Fun way to learn I think.

    "If you're not interested in changing where you work (and thus the student population, obviously) then a) your success at applying various and sundry teaching techniques is unlikely to have anything to do with how effective they are in general, and b) your sweeping generalizations about Thai students serve no purpose but to fuel your inertia and your feeling of being an 'insider'. Sadly (for you) few who read your sweeping generalizations will perceive it that way, but hey if it makes you feel good, knock yourself out." -zeusdogg

    "Basic English conversation for Thai students" is one of the book using for studying in all university classes(fundamental) with CDs.Written by Chula language Institute(20 Thai teachers and 15 English native speakers). You can find it at CU book centre in Chulalongkoron University or Siam Sq. Cu book centre.(You can see more about the books what u want with CDs and they have e-learning packages too(~1200 B).)

    Nomally, Thai students they know more about English grammar but too shy to speak English because they worry about how to make the good sentences.If you are the teacher and want to help Thai students to speak English. Just only talk to them in the normal conversation and forget the grammar. The first thing is take the bravest from them out like the white kids learn an english from their parents. They know nothing about grammar but they can communicate well.

    Are you reading up late at night?

    ถ้าหากมั่งมี แล้วพี่จะคืนมาใหม่, ไม่ว่าจะอยู่แห่งไหน จะนานเท่าไร ยังไม่ลืมบาง...
