Advanced Lesson - Ideas

Postby Tommo » Thu Feb 13, 2020 5:30 pm

Hi all,

I'm currently 1 two hour lesson into a block of 15 with a new teacher. She is a teacher in a thai langauge school in thailand and it was quite apparent when she was giving the lesson at the very start that she was not really that experienced with teaching student that are not in the beginner stage of thai.

When I speak Thai I kinda slip into the "being like a thai mode" so instead saying "could you please only use thai when talking to me" I just said "ในภาษาไทยนั้นเรียกว่าอะไรคับ หรือ ในภาษาไทยคับ" and she eventually got it as :)

The thing is, we basically spoke for 2 hours the way I would with anyone I met, she would correct me when I said something wrong that she thought was important, I would ask for help when I was stuck on a sentence or a word but really there wasn't a lot of direction.

Any pointers would be welcome, even if you're in "lower" stage of learning I would appreciate it. And just to add I really am focusing on regular everyday language.

thanks all.

I also find it a problem when people find it easier to explain in English.
Why do you say ในภาษาไทย if you ask นั่นเรียกว่าอะไร surely she knows that you are looking for a word in Thai.

I cannot recall exactly what I was saying, something like that. Maybe I was emphasing at the time by saying ในภาษาไทย that I wanted it in thai.

When you use the preposition ใน it is Thai with English syntax.
Many people know enough English to accept it as an English way of speaking Thai.
กรุณาพูดแต่ภาษาไทยครับ Speak nothing but Thai please
