I'm here to offer English language training in Bangkok. I speak a little bit of Thai but learning more every day. I was born and brought up in India and moved to Melbourne Australia for my studies. Finished my bachelor's degree and got permanently settled there for the last 15 years. I moved to Thailand in 2018 for project work and found the love of my life here, so Bangkok is my new home.
However, let's talk about my teaching experience. I taught English part-time in a language training center in Bangkok for 1 year. I would like to call myself a language trainer than a teacher. Doesn't matter what language you learn, the improvement only happens when you use that language on a daily basis. Thai people spend a lot of money on English language learning but in my 3 years of experience in Thailand, I didn't feel like there is much of improvement in their language proficiency.
I know their feeling cause once I was also in their situation. I was scared or worried to use this language even though I learned this language all the years in my school. I realized my English language knowledge is nothing when I moved to an English-speaking country and had difficulties with finding a job and understanding my lecturers. But I overcame the situation successfully and became a fluent English language user.
Recently, I noticed most Thai companies' job advertisements highlight English language proficiency as an advantage for the candidate. It's a clear sign that the new generation in Thailand should consider learning English more seriously for successful career growth. Somehow Thai people hate English. The biggest problem they are facing with this language is pronunciation. Thai people have difficulties in pronunciation of some words, especially the words starting or ending with 'L'.
Secondly the Grammar. In the Thai language, there isn't much grammar such as the past, present, or future tenses. They only have one tense which is present tense. Like every non-native speaker, we all think in our mother tongue first at the beginning of our English language journey and covert that into English. So this conversion from a less grammar thai language to the English language is quite difficult for the people here. So my specialization is to provide training to overcome this difficulty and make this language more fun and interesting.
When can you call yourself a fluent language speaker? I think knowing all the grammar is not going to make you fluent. In my experience, you can call yourself a fluent language speaker when you start thinking in that language rather than in your mother tongue. When you stop pausing yourself for that next word is a sign that you are getting good in English. Vocabulary is important to improve your writing and speaking skills; pronunciation is important because English words have origins from many other world languages; grammar is important to convey the statement appropriately. I can provide effective training and share my techniques to get better in this language.
Happy learning everyone!!!
English is not an easy language to learn. It's mainly due to the complexity of the grammar and word pronunciation. But proper training and practice make this language fun and approachable.
The people in Bangkok have higher exposure to English language due to the higher number of international tourists. So here we see people with an intermediate level of language proficiency. However I met many people here with a begginner level skills as well. So I would recommend 2-3 months as an average time to learn this language.
