Kru Yai “I have always been interested in language, communication and people, so teaching is a great way to combine all of those interests. “It’s also incredibly rewarding.” “It’s great to watch students make progress and to be part of that progress.” It also keeps you on your toes…no two days are ever quite the same.” “What I love best about my teaching are the people, students and teachers alike.” “It’s great to work with interesting and motivated people.” “I love hearing about my students and their plans for the future in Thailand.” “They are at an interesting point in their lives and it’s nice to share in that experience in Thailand.”
