    Welcome to Teak Door.

    I'm sure a question or two will pop up in the coming weeks.

    My first one is, how do you say...

    "I wish I could fly, right up to the sky, but I can't"?

    Ae, Welcome to Teakdoor. Would you be willing to change your new banner ad to a slightly darker blue to match the current TD motif?

    None of my students speak English, they are 6 and there are 53 per class. Oddly they don't behave very well with me. But if a Thai person walks in the room they all go hush. I don't mean a Thai teacher person, or the director himself, it could be the gardener.

    I've formed the habit of throwing the bad boys out into the halls were they are to sit till the class finishes. Lately I noticed they've run away as soon as I turn my back.

    You're a teacher too, you must know how to handle something like this. My question is how do you say, "You're an animal, your parents never educated you because their parents never educated them. If you move from this very spot I'll chain you to the wall."

    Dear Kamel,

    .................................................. .................................................. ....

    Hmm, I see . It's hard to handle many people from different family especially when they are in the same place (unfortunately...in your place)

    However, my experience in teaching (both child and adult) taught me that sometime we should keep our desire or what we wanna say deeply inside if that make someone hurt, especially to our student.

    In additional, I can answer your question in cases that you face with the difficult word, word by word, and I hope that you'll understand.

    lucky with your work, Kroo Ae

    I have one.

    As Thai language is quite childlike in nature, do Thais see English language as being all serious and grown up?

    No idea, you would have to find a proper TEFLer to answer that one, yet another question in Thailand that will never be answered

    What is an exact translation of "farang", and why do Thai people use this word so much to place focus onto people's ethnic appearance when doing so serves no purpose?

    A tattoo idea perhaps, CT.

    With a little seahorse of course.

    Hi, Kru Ae.

    Welcome to the board. I'm doing a lot of studying so I'll probably ask you some questions at some point. Thanks in advance!

    I've noticed I get more respect than I deserve at times, I'm old, so what should I deserve for that? I hate it when my students drop to their knees in class asking permission to use the toilet. Come on kids, get up please! I know it's a common theme to show respect to your teachers. But unless they're about to pee their trousers, they dis me to the max, so it can't be real. Would it be inappropriate to tell them to stay off their knees, just ask, it's natural to pee, it's okay, I understand, go pee, you have five minutes, don't forget to wash your hands?

    Thank you in advance, Khru Ae.

    Welcome, Khun Ae.
    Thai is a difficult language to learn. I may have some questions from time to time.
