The other day I visited Pro Language and liked what they had to say, their professionalism and attitude. I enrolled and will now have to wait for up to 3 weeks to find out if my application has been approved by MOE.
In the mean time, I'm not pulling out my language books very often, but rather listen to what's being said around me and trying to speak more Thai when out shopping, or with hotel staff etc. I am starting to comprehend the numbers (prices) automatically. But when I get stuck and begin to use my fingers to count, the helpful Thai shop assistant will interject with English. It's probably rude of me to shush them, so I don't. Most Thai people are more than happy to teach you a little if they know your keen to learn and they seem to enjoy practicing their English at the same time.
I'm picking up new words and phrase, largely due to Stray, who is much more outgoing than I and willing to have a go and make mistakes. He may end up with a wider vocabulary than I...but hey, I might be able to read a Thai menu, eventually :)
See what else we're up to at Cooee!
