My Trip to Thailand
ICL camp@RPK24 Phayao, Thailand 1-29 July 2022
My experience in a Thai school was undoubtedly different to my experience in English ones. The children always say “good morning”, “hello”, wave and or every time you go past. There have been a lot of picture requests too, it is very different to England.
For the majority of my time at school I taught the youngest students here, their ages being 6 years old - 8 years old (though I did volunteer to help the 9 year olds with their maths one day). The students are perfectionists, they were consistently using tip-ex to cover up their mistakes, or furiously rubbing out their mistakes that were made in pencil (they hated when I made corrections for them in red pen). Primary school classes involved a lot of singing, dancing and games. I can not sing or dance at all. The games were very energetic and the children loved them. If it was a competitive game then the losing team would have to do a dance at the front of the classroom (I was often on the losing team).
