Two in Thailand

After raising three children and watching them graduate from college, Bob and Carol decided to leave the educational field and pursue a dream that had been put on hold for 35 years (since graduationg from the University of Northern Iowa). "Two in Thailand" is the journal dedicated to that dream - to serve in the Peace Corps. This is a personal blog. The opinions expressed within do not necessarily represent the views of the Peace Corps or the United States Government.

Day 1 of Our English Camp - "Keep 'em Talking"

Thai English teachers find it very difficult to get their students to attempt to speak English. We were recruited to present a two-day workshop to introduce activities that would encourage Thai students to speak English. We had 73 teachers from 9:00 am to 4:00 pm on Saturday and Sunday. We presented a total of 10 activities that we hope the Thai teachers will incorporate into their lesson plans. The top picture shows two teachers with Carol presenting their list of different ways to say "Very Good" in English.

Is that because it's a hard language to speak or theyre too embarrased? or maybe both?
