    EP Books - Finally English books following Thai Cirriculum

    I have just had a pleasent meeting with a Malaysian companies rep.

    Pelangi Publishing (THailand) Co. Ltd. has had the sense to create an English Science book that followis the Thai Cirriculum - it doesn't have some of the more complex stuff that you find in some of the Thai books but otherwise it fits the cirrculum to a T.

    So - Piyarat Harnlertrith

    0-1750-3301

    pelangithai@gmail.com

    She speaks excellent English.

    Sad isn't it that a Malaysain company finally had to sense to do this.

    Great news,
    I'll see if I can get my school to order some.
    Why can't the Thai government get off its arse and do this?
    Faith, by itself, isn't a good enough reason to believe. Instead, a belief must be defensible through reason, logic, and evidence.
    The idea that faith is somehow justified by the fact that the beliefs cannot be proven is a truly Orwellian position to adopt - not to mention intellectually and ethically dangerous.

    I have no idea.

    Apparantly the cirricuum is now up to the LEA with a possible core base from the MOE - in other words a big fuck up.

    The books are called Mathyom 1 etc

    They do Math as well.

    I emailed her today - she rang back in an hour and said she'd have some info (and hopefully some samples) in the post by next week.

    So thanks to her and to mrsquirrel!!

    Maybe I have missed something on this thread. You found a publisher in Malaysia who publishes books in English, that follow the Thai curriculum.

    Is there a followup? Or a foulup? Can you actually get these books in Thailand? Will your program permit it? Is anybody using them in Thailand?

    I'm guessing that most Thai administrators don't want foreign books being used in the classroom. Although it does happen at times.

    Has anyone seen any of these books yet? I'd love to hear some feedback.
    I'm sure I'm sorry I guess I was in a hurry.

    You'd think it'd be Singapore who'd come up with this ... now that they own a big chunk of Thailand.
