May29, 2012 we are invited to teach English for Fun to 39 primary school students at Wad Sattaram school, Tambol Marui, Thapput, Phangnga. They are mixed classes from Pratom 1-6 and have different levels of English. In the morning, we help teach them some easy English, songs and games. Later in the afternoon, we involve them in some activities about ASEAN.
There is a "chat online" workshop organizing for interested people at the Community ITC, Saun Palm Building, Phangnga Community College between June28-29, 2012. Its aims are to introduce attendees a multimedia chat program and train them to use it properly in order to practice all their language skills - listening, speaking, reading, writing, vocabulary, and expressions. In addition, they can make foreign friends both in ASEAN nations and around the world. They can also share Thai culture and learn new ones. (It's a pity that not many people attended this workshop!)
In order to activate and motivate local people to get ready for ASEAN Community in 2015 and communicate in English properly, English Day Camp was organized for 58 interested people between 24-25 May, 2012 at PCC.
Our trainers were from Earth Language Training Center namely Mr Sam Somsak Bootterb, Ms Jah, Mr. Adrian Hughes,Mr. George Graham, Ms. Karen Derbyshire, and Ms. Terry Remin.
