Teaching In Si Saket Province

Here I am with a few students from my masters' degree class, English for Lawyers.  They were a good bunch too.  Not so up on the English, but very pleasant.  I admire how they all give me great attention, with good eye contact, even though for most of them I might as well give the lecture in German.

My technique these days is to first go over some new vocabulary on whatever point of law I'm introducing; then I explain it in simple English, with some repetition; then I try to throw in a story or an example in Thai to clarify what I was talking about.  I do what I can to help them, I try to keep the lessons simple.

It's always fun for me, in any case.
