OK. We have a Speech (or whatever) competition for Thai school kids.
All of them have had access to same training or opportunity to access extra training.
It's a level playing field.
Europe has a much higher level of English proficiency than Thailand.
Sticking German, European/Thai kids in "unlevels" the playing field.
Same goes for your American/Thai kids.
And from personal experience ... Cambodians leave Thais for dead as far as English is concerned. And the Thais know it. (But won't admit it)
Singapore? English is an official language.
SO here you are. You see a competition. "Wow!" you think. "My American/Thai kids will slam dunk this!" "What a boost to my ego! ... Yeah, yeah, I know that's not very Christian like ... but I'm a hypocrite ... so fuck it!"
But alas! Your evil plan was thwarted! Indignation sets in. You stew and stew over it in anguish. Then you come here and pour your heart out over it.
Did I miss anything?
And I think you're missing the point. Most "competitions" in Thailand aren't really about whatever the competition is "really" supposed to be about. It's probably to motivate students, build bonds, make sunuk, or even to provide an opportunity for the teachers to dress up in the "general costumes". You know those, right? The ones that look legit...but have all sorts of ribbons awards and decorations that...aren't real either.
[I lived in Thailand with my kids too. We laughed about some of the fucked up things, people, and ideas. And we do the same in Canada...]
Ok, who are your really?I don't know which, but my colleague told me the Prime Minister has a chat link that you can speak to her directly, so maybe I'll try finding that.
No one can be this thick...
A man of words and not of deeds
Is like a garden full of weeds,
And when the weeds begin to grow
It's like a garden full of snow,
And when the snow begins to fall
It's like a bird upon the wall,
And when the bird away does fly
It's like an eagle in the sky,
And when the sky begins to roar
It's like a lion at the door,
And when the door begins to crack
It's like a stick across your back,
And when your back begins to smart
It's like a penknife in your heart,
And when your heart begins to bleed
You're dead, and dead, and dead -- indeed.

Like I said. Unfair. Fuck Christianity! It's unsporting! Don't tell me that you did not ... even for a second think "My kids could do really well in this competition" (Due to their increased exposure to English at home ... something the "normal" Thai kids don't have.)
this has got to be a troll, nobody can be this obtuse. what an irredeemable prick. well as linda blair said so succinctly, 'let j**** f*** y**!'
[Trust me you probably care about it waaaaay more than they do]
And you do know you're in Thailand right?
I mean, I like to bitch and moan as much as the next guy but it's not like you're going to change anything. And let's say you could magically change Thailand into some first-world nation; then it wouldn't be Thailand anymore...and everyone would have to find the "next Thailand".
So ... back to topic now? Still ... no ones mentioned horizontal vaginas. I think it needs more exploring.
This one is not a myth: All Asians look the same way...they look with their eyes, you racist.
