They were SOOOO camera shy before and now whenever I pull my phone or camera out they all say “TEACHER TEACHER!!!!”..and do a taking-picture action with their hands and point at my camera haha.
And surprisingly I think I’ve picked up a lot of Thai for someone who’s only been here for 3 weeks!! I have to learn some Thai words from the girls so I can actually explain what I’ve taught at school to the students.
I must admit, it was quite difficult at first trying to learn the basic phrases such as ‘hello’, ‘how are you’, and ‘thank you’. But seriously after using it everywhere, it became really fun and useful to learn other phrases, such as ‘Do you understand?’, ‘I don’t know’, ‘This tastes good!’ etc…
Oh and not to mention, my students LOVE it when I pull out a random Thai phrase or Thai word. They get so excited and they stay engaged in the lesson (woo hoo :D).
