  1. Difficult to avoid him if you're involved in teaching or watch his cheesy Thai TV slots. His language school on Rama 4 never seemed to take off, but no doubt he's one of very few farangs who's integrated successfully with Thai media. I find him annoying!

  2. IPTV with Thai channels

    It suits me, as I don't want or need 6,000 channels! I'm happy with just the UK channels, Sky and the sport. Sent from my SM-G930F using Thailand Forum - Thaivisa mobile app
  3. English Language Test for FLR

    They cannot get LTR without the appropriate test result and if they don't get LTR they cannot remain in the UK. Sent from my SM-G930F using Thailand Forum - Thaivisa mobile app
  4. English Language Test for FLR

    I'm sure your wife will not have a problem. The main difference between A1 and B1 is in the range of language required, i.e. candidates need to use tenses and some subordination, which is not required at A1 level. Their pronunciation (chunking, word stress etc.) also needs to be higher level. However, it's still fairly easy to pass as long as they speak. Like with A1, the Trinity test is just the candidate and the examiner, while the IELTS Life Skills tests two candidates together. In the Trinity test, the candidate has to prepare a topic at home, to present in the test, and then is questioned on it by the examiner. In the Life Skills version, candidates are given topics to talk about in the test and are questioned by the other candidate. there is also a planning exercise, where the two candidates have to plan to do something together. Their interaction skills are assessed. In the UK you can choose between Life Skills and Trinity, but in Thailand you have to do Life Skills.
  5. What nonsense. CELTA and Trinity TESOL courses are accredited and can be taken all over the world. Sent from my SM-G930F using Thailand Forum - Thaivisa mobile app
  6. I doubt you see Thai men peeing in public and displaying their penis, like this idiot is doing. Sent from my SM-G930F using Thailand Forum - Thaivisa mobile app
  7. IPTV with Thai channels

    It was fine where I am, in Bangkok. I watched all the football with no buffering. PulseTV put on extra servers at the weekend. Sent from my SM-G930F using Thailand Forum - Thaivisa mobile app
  8. You'd be surprised! Some IELTS candidates manage to sneak the answers in, sometimes written on their leg! How they get hold of the answers is even more concerning...
  9. IPTV with Thai channels

    PulseTV has been operating normally.
  10. Thanks for your reply. I don't know how long it won't be required and it would be nice if other offices followed the main office's example and did not enforce it, as was done in the past. Enjoy the fresh air and beer. We have pools and beer too, but no TM30, even though the air is horrible. Sent from my SM-G930F using Thailand Forum - Thaivisa mobile app
  11. Better still to live in an area where Immigration don't require a TM30 at all, like the main Immigration office in Bangkok! Sent from my SM-G930F using Thailand Forum - Thaivisa mobile app
  12. In Brexit poker, clock narrows transition options

    The depressing reality of what this short-sighted, but hopefully not irreversible, decision is going to cost us. https://www.theguardian.com/politics/2017/oct/15/grim-reality-of-bad-tempered-brexit
