Love to be a fly on the wall Be lots said like" speak slowly, not understand,  Can you repeat,  Looking at the big guy sitting there he must have broken the law The school girl is probably telling him you must pay 500 baht bribe or you go to jail But in all honest the guy who said 95% of Thai students cant speak english he is right

I went to my local immigration office where they had a similar situation, though the students were doing 'work experience'. One young lass  assisted me in correctly filling the necessary forms. At the end she said in English, how was that. I replied that it was much easier with her assistance and thanked her. She replied, 'what no tip'…my laughter could be heard everywhere. I thought, you are not even a permanent employee, but already you have mastered the essential language of a Thai government employee…555…and no she did not get a tip!

Surely this wont replace gumps in quasi-paramilitary fancy dress with "me pay bar you" linguistic levels?

Actually their linguistic levels are fine, just not in English.  This is Thailand.  Why don't you learn Thai and come back and tell us how great your Thai is in two years?  It's not easy.

I think this is a great idea. And just perhaps the Thai schoolkids will learn from the farang NOT to just accept what they are told just because someone is of a higher status than themselves. maybe they will learn to ask more questions if the first answer does not solve the problem...maybe the kids will learn to THINK for themselves...When the farang is not happy with what they are first told and pose further questions that the kids then have to ask in Thai of the police officer....maybe the kids will start to learn to NOT fear asking questions/seeking more information from an older person of higher station in life than themselves >>>>>>>>>. Just maybe . 

Yes sir, that's real education when that happens!

It's a good try and does not deserve such stupid comments. Some grumpy old Men, almost ever the same here go better back to her homecountrys. They will be for sure welcome there for their big mouth and sozial competence.

Faulty translations provided by a child would be a defense lawyers wet dream, anywhere in the real world.

How many cops would feel embarrassed (lose face) by having to listen to an M4, M5 school girl explain something to them?

....you have no Idea about Thailand and the lose Face theme.

To all you wingers out there, go and try and learn Thai and see how hard it is, you might realise that they are smarter than you.
