Nong ("younger person") Fuang works with one of the professors in my office. She is highly intelligent, hard working in the Thai manner, superbly computer literate, and her English is very good, not just for a Thai, but really, really good. Now she's working on two masters' degrees, Law and English. She wants to be an academic.
She has all of the tools, but sometime soon someone will need to polish her up a little, like in "My Fair Lady." She's kind of a country mouse. But that'll be an easy job when the time comes. She'll do fine.
