WHAT SHOULD YOU EXPECT FROM MY LESSONS?
֎ A friendly teacher & Fluent in English speaking & writing.
֎ Experienced in teaching Thai language (beginner-intermediate-advanced levels) to English speakers.
֎ Experienced in teaching Thai language (Only Basic Levels) to French speakers.
֎ Help you to build your confidence when speaking and help you to improve Thai accent & correct your pronunciation.
֎ You can raise up the question at all-time during a class. there is homework after a class finished (of course, just proposed not imposed)
֎ I found that there are Thai Teaching books to foreigners or even websites giving you lots of sentences without explaining to you the grammatical structure or roots. You can copy their sentences to speak but may not be able to adapt for a better talk when you encounter a different situation. So, I created by myself the teaching structure through my own materials like PDF, Google.doc that you can retrieve the document whenever you want.
֎ I also found some outdated teaching styles for example, "Kam-lang" means doing something (present continuous Tense). Even though it’s correct and many foreign students are taught to use it, meanwhile native Thais use only "Yùu" at the end of sentences to mean doing something. Because actually, "Kam-lang" is used when you are going to do something but not when you are doing something, or it is used just to emphasize "Yùu" (except you are being............, then we use "Kam-lang").
My goal is to help you talk Thai like Natives do.
