    Nonsense English exam answers

    Education in Thailand is provided mainly by the Thai government through the Ministry of Education from pre-school to senior high school. A free basic education of fifteen years is guaranteed by the constitution.[4] Compulsory education ends with Mattayom 3 (grade 9), after which pupils can pursue an upper-secondary education in a university-preparatory track, or continue their studies in vocational school programs.[5] If you want to bring your child to a"better school", even if the school only has got a good name, it's getting expensive. They'll ask you for at least 20 K, but it could also be 50 K, depending on the structure and how many people are involved in this scam. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Education_in_Thailand

    Thank you very much for your answer. Honestly speaking, I've had around 3,000 baht more ten years ago and I partly blame the agencies for it. They were the ones who started to pay Filipinos 10 K/month. Of course, did many schools follow and many foreigners are not able to pay all the bills that are much higher than they were ten years ago. Very annoying is the fact that more and more schools hire unqualified teachers and let them work as trainers or teacher's assistant. My license will be at my school in a few weeks but if that continues I do not know if I'm willing to cope with all the bs from year to year. If nothing is changing and things get worse, I'll go back and forget about teaching in Thailand. We are all different, but we can't eat stones.

    Are you on your third 5-year license, or on your third provisional teacher's license? Sorry, when I'm asking, but it's often mixed up with the waiver, that's only good for two years. If everyone in your office has got the 5-year teacher's license your school seems to be an exception.

    I'm afraid that you forgot to mention the biggest group of foreign teachers in Thailand. Those who made it happen to receive a teacher's license, unfortunately, many based on forged documents. Most of these teachers have got a teacher's license from Khurusapha, but you'll hardly find Caucasian teachers with such a license.

    Stallions 400cc - Any good?

    But you'll get quality and no parts will be falling off? I'm also thinking about buying such a bike once my money from a friend arrives. Any reports? How much? Are they reliable? I just found this: https://www.rideasia.net/motorcycle-forum/threads/stallions-scrambler-400.8737/ I've seen the new Royal Enfield coming in two models, both with fuel injection, one model is a one seater. Does anybody own one?

    Uni trained? I beg your pardon. Our son studied three years electronics at the local technical college and couldn't even replace a light bulb. It's hard to find a good electrician who knows what he's doing.

    I really feel sorry for you and your daughter. The reality about such competitions is that you can basically pay the judges who the winner will be. I've seen that at my former school and couldn't believe my own eyes. That's usually at competitions without foreign judges. Money rules, even at competitions. I fully understand why you've corrected the wrong English, but these people will finally blame your daughter.

    The bad accent is always real English where many teachers believe the kids are wrong. Then add an SEA teacher to it and you've got the chaos. My son was part of five students who'd won a national skit competition in Bangkok. But they were only fourth at the Semi-Final in Mukdahan, where the competition took place. The same students from Mukdahan were only the tenth in the Final round in Bangkok. Even the teachers received a gold medal and 400,000 baht cash which they then spent on a luxury holiday in Chonburi. The students didn't receive anything. They could read how they've spent the money on the teachers' Facebook pages and it was the last time for him. A very hard lesson for teenagers.

    Here's the exam with the right answers. Some typos do exist, but it's shocking how bad the teacher is. You'll need a good PDF reader, I was using Nitro 11 Pro. Please let me know if you can see the answers, it will be easy to change the format. 1088207746_Englishexam.pdf checked.pdf

    Your statement isn’t really true. The TCT gave all foreigners enough time to do an additional course to upgrade an existing BA. A Diploma in Teacher Education does the trick and the TCT will issue a license for you. Even for those who haven’t got a BA, it’s possible to obtain a BA in education, mostly online with a couple of “face to face” lessons. A few years back the TCT somehow lost track of the issued waivers and people started over being on their first provisional license.
  12. Or buy some cheap Fentanyl from China and get the guys hooked up.
  13. Prayuth and Prawit will solve the issue soon.
