Tutor description

It would be quite difficult to find 2 languages as different as Thai and English. As well as using a different script, Thai has a very different phonological system and there is little similarity between Thai and English grammar .It is not surprising that many Thai learners can be slow to grasp grammar or be unable to reproduce recognizable English sounds.

Thai LearnersTeaching Thai LearnersIt would be quite difficult to find 2 languages as different as Thai and English. As well as using a different script, Thai has a very different phonological system and there is little similarity between Thai and English grammar .It is not surprising that many Thai learners can be slow to grasp grammar or be unable to reproduce recognizable English sounds. The following is an attempt to identify the main problem areas and to explain the reasons behind them.PhonologyThai pronunciation of English is generally very poor by international standards. Some Thais cannot be understood at all when they speak English and others appear to have some kind of speech impediment. In fact, the job of an English teacher in Thailand is sometimes quite close to that of a speech therapist. There are a number of reasons for this. Thais often do not want to show off
