Teaching Foreign Students

As a part of my study, I went with my friends to teach in one of the International schools in Thailand today.
Established by Dr. Chin Chinsettawong, Associate Judge of The Central Labor Court of Thailand, Sunflower Trilingual School is approximately one and half hour drive from the Mahidol University. The school aims to be a community learning center and prepares the children in developing their physical, emotional, intellectual and social maturity. The children are encouraged to develop and use English and Chinese languages besides their native Thai. 
Teaching students in a school that follows a curriculum of an international parity is really enriching. The students are always open, restless, bold and courageous. And surprisingly, hesitations and fear from a teacher is a forgotten story for all of them.    

Brainstorming on how to teach...

  2. Your pictures tell half of the story. Beside your write up, I really enjoyed the photos. Always do the same - if you can. I mean story along with pictures. My suggestion to you, sir.

    1. Thank you Sonam. I have left the story half said. There is a vast difference in teaching foreign and native students. It was really challenging but at the same time enriching. Thank you for the suggestions.
