3Teaching in Thailand: What to Expect When You ArriveHi Barry! Thanks for your comment! I'm happy to know it stirred up some memories. My Thai is not so hot either, I find it difficult to get a handle on it. My students are great so no surprise to hear they rate well against the rest of the world. Regards, Lex2017-12-09 05:31:14
