    Sorry, I meant „community“ – English is a second language to me. Sent from my iPad using Thailand Forum - Thaivisa mobile app

    Chinese in Korat?

    Hi everyone! We will spend 3 months in Nakhon Ratchasima, and we would like to keep on speaking Chinese (Mandarin) regularly in order to avoid losing fluency. Do you know if there is some kind of Chinese population in Korat (maybe Chinese stores, shop-owners, residential area, ...)? Thanks for your feedback!

    Hardest languages to learn

    Wife and I learnt Chinese in 2-3 years living in a Chinese speaking country. Thai is also on a good path. But I doubt we would have learned Japanese or Icelandic in that time ... I guess it is impossible to rank the general difficulty of a language, it is in the eyes of the beholder. Sent from my iPhone using Thailand Forum - Thaivisa mobile app

    Hardest languages to learn

    Come on, Swiss-German is easy: just swallow a bunch of rusty nails that rip open your throat and then drink a glass of pure alcohol ... every word after that will have this delicate CHKRCHRANGRRCH-sound everybody envy us Swiss for! Sent from my iPhone using Thailand Forum - Thaivisa mobile app
  5. „Changes to Work Permit Laws, Regulations & Enforcement Emergency Decree on Foreigner’s Working Management No.2 B.E. 2561 (2018) • Work Permit is not required for: ... − Persons who enter Thailand to operate business or to make investment or who have knowledge, ability, or high skills, which would be beneficial to the development of the country“ And ... WHO DECIDES THIS?
  6. Well, membership and visa are not the same. After the start and during the membership, you can get a visa, and the visa may be still valid when your membership already has expired. Sent from my iPhone using Thailand Forum - Thaivisa mobile app
  7. ... what the house is worth? Impossible to say. What somebody is willing to pay for it, that is the only thing possible to define, but only if it is sold at some time. With or without commission is not really the point, is it? All perception ... (see: anchoring, behavioral finance) Sent from my iPhone using Thailand Forum - Thaivisa mobile app
  8. I don‘t know about Transferwise, but the membership starts as soon as the money arrived and has been allocated to your membership number. Since this can take a day or two, you are not able to define or target the start date by yourself. But TE will tell you, and it will show on your visa in your passport as well.

  9. 1) What level are you at? Beginner; easy small talk, make steady progress regarding the listening/comprehension, and - if prepared - able to explain easy content (like in a 6-min-talk) 2) Can you read and write Thai? My reading is still very slow (tones!). If I can prepare a text with some Paiboon-romanization, then งูงูปลาปลา. Writing is still far too difficult: same sounds but different letters? Come on ... 3) How long have you been learning for? 9 months self-study, along with my wife and some other friends (all non-Thai) 4) How did you learn? Free information on the net (Youtube, PDFs, ...) and free apps on iOS as well as talking with our Thai friends here in Taiwan 5) What other languages could you speak before Thai? German (native), English, French, Chinese (Mandarin), some Italian, some Spanisch Gesendet von iPhone mit Thaivisa Connect
