Re: Thais rank low again at English

Your a joke :)
To correct your English it should be "You're a joke" as in 'You are'.

The nub of this thread should be about the proficiency of the English language in Thailand and not about whether expats can speak Thai or not!

Re: Thais rank low again at English

European birthrate diminishing and Asian increasing, As usual, jamjar, you have got it wrong. The birthrate in Asia is diminishing not increasing. That's why, Singapore and other countries are offering incentives to reproduce. Thailand has recently announced benefits for having more kids. As an asi...

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 t...

Re: I think I need a border run?

Those posts are lifted from ThaiVisa (Shh you'll wake up the mods) and members there are not as reliable as members here. I'd take everything read there with a pinch of salt.

Re: Another San Paulo story

:lach: That is actually the only part Petcharat were lacking in. Their food was inedible when I was there for a week. Also on a few outpatient visits. I'd doubt they could even boil an egg, let alone a soft boiled egg. They obviously didn't tell you that you could order from a nearby hotel. My son ...

Re: Another San Paulo story

When my son had a serious m/cycle accident some years ago, HH Hospital wanted to send him to SP for surgery (HH Hospital, as it is now, hadn't been built) but SP said that they don't have the facility of expertise! So he was sent to Petcharat, thankfully. After surgery and a couple of weeks recovery...

Re: Another San Paulo story

By far the best (based on my family's experience), but a bit far is Petcharat.
Agree 100%. Such a shame they closed down their clinic in HH after the Bangkok Hospital opened.

Re: British Passport renewal company in Hua Hin?

Seems I've confused some people.

She's Thai/English and therefore has two passports.

Also, doesn't matter that a passport is out of date, it's still 'renewable'.

Re: British Passport renewal company in Hua Hin?

When I went with my daughter a year ago, she only had to produce copies of her old passport, which was well out of date. My last renewal was by post to Hong Kong and copies were accepted. The official reason was that because Thailand has a requirement to produce your original passport, the necessity...

Re: British Passport renewal company in Hua Hin?

The Visa Agency accepts copies and as KeyVisa deals with them I'm sure a copy will do. The British Passport Office accepts a copy from Thailand because of the laws here whereas you have to be able to produce your passport when required.

Re: British Passport renewal company in Hua Hin?

They seem to have built up a reputation which is underlined by the acceptance of the visa agency (Trendy Building). I think that if there was anything untoward it would have been spotted by now.

Re: Santorini Park

My daughter used to go there regularly when she was younger. Appeared at the time that it catered for school kids rather than 'grown ups'. But then again some of us haven't grown up yet!! I'm in my second (or third) childhood!
