    Teaching Approach

    I believe people learn differently according to how they perceive information. So I teach each person in the learning style that suits them most. I give them two questionnaire s to complete on "learning assessment" (to assess learning style preferences), and a "psychologica l assessment" (to measure psychological preferences in how people perceive the world and make decisions).

    In the class I use the approach called 'student centered' where I focus on my learners needs and their life style, what they really interact with on a day to day basis or what are their particular or special interests. This makes the lessons fun and lively.

    Program Description

    Conversation: I teach my students using my own series of books called 'Survival Thai' and 'Comfortable Thai' that I wrote when I was the head of Thai language section at the International Language School in 1995. I used them to teach my students who could say nothing in Thai except 'sawaddii'(he llo) to the point where they can discuss fluently in Thai to express their ideas and needs when they want to. I think the success of this series of books comes from its way of introducing the learners step by step to both Thai culture and language.

    Thai for Tourist: 2 hours short course focus on situations e.g. greeting, shopping, Taxi.

    Reading and Writing: To start I teach the theory of Thai scripts, then I choose the material from a wide variety of my own materials and news articles to suit each learners' needs and objectives.

    Teaching Experience

    I have been teaching Thai to foreigners in Thailand for 22 years and lately expanded to overseas through voice chat. My students are diplomats, executive people, housewives, exchange program students, retirees, husbands with Thai wives etc.
    Also at the same time I have been teaching English to Thai and Asian students.

    Teacher Training

    I was born in Bangkok, the capital of Thailand. Therefore my accent is the 'Bangkok' standard accent. I graduated
    in English Major(B.A.) therefore explaining differences between Thai and English became my strong point in teaching. I joined the U.S. language and cultural training program for Indochinese refugee in 1983 (The Consortium, Phanat Nikhom, Chonburi, Thailand), where I learned how to teach language and culture to adults following the American method.

    Why are online lessons better?

    If you are outside Thailand, online lessons are cheaper than face to face lessons with facilities to help the learning process both in the virtual classroom and after the class time.

    The lesson time is flexible, up to your convenience. Later I have moved from Bangkok, Thailand to England.
    (GMT+1 in summer and GMT+0 in winter).
