Ajarn Donald's insight:

With your careful consideration and generous donations I hope to raise enough funds to help 2,000 teenage students to learn English in 10 Thai government secondary schools. I also estimate about 40-60 teachers will receive the teacher's passes for FREE. We want them to be able to have fun while learning with the English Attack! Online Learning platform. That is less than $13.00 per student for a year of unlimited learning and this platform has follow up games which ought to keep them wanting to learn English. I am also trying to find some local corporations to sponsor some competitions to help keep these teenage learners motivated.

Greetings from Bangkok, Thailand.

I had learned yesterday from a good friend and follower that there may be a glitch in our Paypal system. Below is what he had alerted me about.

My Friend: Tried donating via Paypal but it failed. There seems to be a technical glitch between the funding site and Paypal.

My response: Thank you for letting me know this Ed. I had been wondering why no one has donated yet and several people told me they would. I am going to check this out. How are you doing now a days?

My Friend: That is a good thing you are doing out there. Check out that glitch issue.

My Response: Thanks for your support Ed. Really do appreciate this.

My Friend: Yw pls inform me asap when the tech issue is solved.

Conclusion: I do hope and pray to God that you may be interested in supporting this very important campaign. Thank you for your continued support and patience and please check back in a day or so. We are working around the clock with Paypal and Go Get Funded (which is a very reputable company) and we assure you we will have this glitch resolved soon. I really feel determined to bring positive changes in the lives of Thai teenagers so that they will have a brighter future. We need your support in doing exactly this. Thank you very much.

Thailand Schools Learning English

Thailand Schools Learning English | On This Day in Thailand | Scoop.it
I am Donald Patnaude originally from Chicago but living and teaching in Bangkok, Thailand since 2001. I’ve taught English to more than 6,500 people here ages 4-60 years old and from all walks of life. Mostly I’ve taught teenagers Mathayom 1-6 students for four years in three Thai government secondary schools. I had also worked for several language centers and have taught English to young learners, teens and adults. Now I am the Marketing Partner in Thailand for Paris based English Attack! After having witnessed everything from young pregnant girls and girls who have been raped, a boy who is alive today but had 1/3 of his brain removed because he had delivered ice on his motorbike at 4:20 A.M. before coming to school and had an accident. His 14-year old friend on the same bike wasn’t as lucky. These boys had to help their parents in the family business every day before going to school. Then you know the rest. Yep! Gangs, drugs, prison etc. Thailand ranks near bottom in English proficiency. In the globalized world, English is used in an outer and expanding circle and therefore plays a vital role in the global economy. Many parents believe that learning English can give their children chances of getting a good job and a hope for having a better standard of living. However, as the national examination or what is called “Entrance Examination” in Thailand influences teaching and learning, the use of multiple choices for grammar rules and reading is emphasized in the classroom. Little attention is paid to developing students’ speaking and listening abilities since they are not assessed in the University Entrance Examination. Most of the time, L1 is the language used in the classroom, resulting in both opportunities for and threats to developing communicative competence and learning English. The notion of standard English is viewed as that used by the inner circles, leaving attention for English as used by a larger number of users in the outer and expanding circle. Therefore, this article suggests and discusses some pedagogical implications and trends for developing Thai students’ communicative competence and skills and attitudes towards English in the globalized era, in the hope of preparing Thai students for the arrival ASEAN economic community in 2015 in which English is regarded as a working language. I want to try my best to help some of these vulnerable students so that they will have a better chance as they grow older and they too will hopefully be able to contribute some good deeds into their communities. As marketing partner in Thailand for English Attack! I’ve put together a plan with the two co-founders at the Paris office. In recognition of this reality, I have created a very special campaign for all government secondary schools (M-1/M-6) under which schools or students pay only 1 Baht per day per student (365 Baht per year per student = $12.00) if there is a minimum of 200 license purchased per school. I will give FREE teacher’s licenses to the English teachers teaching these students. A very important rationale behind the 1 Baht campaign is that signed-up students can use English Attack! every day, including during long holidays, not just during the school year. Regular price is 2,988 or about $100.00 Teacher’s licenseses are 4,188 Baht or about $140.00 With your careful consideration and generous donations I hope to raise enough funds to help 2,000 teenage students to learn English in 10 Thai government secondary schools. We want them to be able to have fun while learning with the English Attack! Online Learning platform. That is less than $13.00 per student for a year of unlimited learning and this platform has follow up games. I am also trying to find some local corporations to sponsor some competitions to help keep these teenage learners motivated.

Thai people celebrate Songkran Festival in Thailand. Songkran is the official Thai New Year Celebration. People throw water at each other while others are singing and dancing in the streets. It is said to be the BIGGEST water fight in the world. This happens 13-15 April every year. I wonder if any other countries have unusual official New Year holidays? If your country does then share it here for all of us to enjoy. Happy Songkran!
