Well said .. I agree with your evaluation and opinion 100%, and notice a few spelling mistakes as you have said. I once saw written on a Police Watchouse Wall. "If you notice this notice you will notice that this notice is not 'worse' noticing".

Interesting reading one mans experience and thoughts, he's been here the same amount of time as me.   Some points i agree with but not others....each to his own.

"Trying to speak Thai to Thais is soul destroying because they make no effort to meet you half way and understand what you are saying."

 

Hmmm, disagree, I find that I can get along with 90% of the Thai I talk to in my mangled speaking, they do try to help out in listening, at least most of them do.  With an occasional chuckle, of course, when I screw up.

I agree, trying to speak Thai can be a lot of fun, especially if you laugh at yourself and can draw what you're trying to buy or catch. Most people are intrigued that you are willing to lose face in order to get your message across and are happy to help as much as they can......they're very similar to Vietnamese in that regard! :wai:
