Re: Thais rank low again at English

Everyone seems to be missing the point here. This is not about whether foreigners have taken the trouble to learn Thai but the importance of the language. I know enough Thai to get by but probably doesn't even warrant a grade. People learn Thai for the convenience of being able to communicate with ...

It does annoy me to see their English grades, and I then wonder about the rest of their education.

Re: UK shifts visas for Thai nationals to India

I hope the reverse tit for tat isn't going to happen and we brits have to get visa decision-making centre from Deli also :( Regarding Indians they are brilliant in IT, I remember a colleague in the late 70's was writing computer programs in machine code with a pencil and paper, and explaining to me ...

Re: Thais rank low again at English

The average Brit ranks low in Thai including me, not many of us english speaking brits are fluent in Thai and that's for sure, when we the English expats living here can write and speak fluent Thai,only then we can we judge others.. This topic is complete nonsense :)

Re: The ever-improving state of Hua Hin's roads

Re: Bitcoin mining and cryptocurrency thread

What’s with the lower transaction fees? Originally crypto currency was supposed to be peer to peer so no middle man banker or broker takes a clip each side of the trade as in the the case of fx retail trading, if that is the case what’s the difference btwn any fx currency trade? :D
