So here I am again ..Friday night in Chiangmai, just came back from Central Shopping Plaza getting some life necessities.
So today was AWESOME!. I teamed taught today with Stephen, from the UK but lives in Chiangrai north of where we are right now.
I am just going to hit you with some school pictures tonight to give you a feel what is like to teach here in Thailand.
My group today was a level 2 group so there English was just OK. My job here is to work on language structure and how they say the words. They have an interesting way on how some words are pronounced. They only hear the language from a Thai teacher. The classrooms are nice sized but the average Thai classroom also has about 45 students in it...My space on Friday was big as I was in the language arts section of the school as as newer building much larger rooms. We have a dream situation in as compared to the average Thai teacher. We split the average class in half and each of us take only about 20 students. One building on the campus is really noisy as it is adjacent to a playground.
No discipline issues here...We are like GOD to them....LOVE THIS POWER
