Teaching Job-Related English

Government English Class

We just finished teaching a two month conversational English class for a government department in Bangkok.  With some of the changes coming to SE Asia through ASEAN, it’s becoming more important for people to learn English.  I developed lessons based on the specific needs of this government department.  Hopefully they gained not only some practical English skills, but also some confidence in using it.  We had a lot of fun together, as you can see from the pictures below, and from the feedback we got, I think the class was very successful.
