    How has that affected us, have we become American?
    Amazing. American television since birth. Yet your average Thai can not put together a simple sentence. " I hungry f$ck you"

    Mostly modeled after American TV which explains much of the global brain damage we are witnessing.

    As a general rule, experienced bar girls speak better English than Thai English teachers. I base this comment on 8 years working in a Thai school (and having met numerous visiting teachers from other schools) and 12 years frequenting the company of bar girls.

    That comment is neither a joke or an exaggeration.

    I've met a lot of older Thai teachers who are completely fluent, in conversation. I guess they grew up when the US was here due to Vietnam.

    From what I heard from one school I worked with, back in the 70's new teachers were required to study in America for one year.
