I’ve been busy learning Thai since June at YMCA Chiang Mai. I memorized many words, I understood some sentences when I hear it. But I still cannot speak Thai :(. Yesterday I decided to stop learning Thai at YMCA and registered myself to AUA Chiang Mai.
Before registering to AUA, I’ve heard some testimonies from ex-AUA students. They said, learning Thai in AUA is totally different from YMCA. I do some Googling yesterday to find out about others testimonies, and I ended up in a website that says learning language is different from learning math, history or any other subjects at school. I think everybody has different style of learning. But for me, the Automatic Language Growth program seems quite promising.
English is not my mother language. I learned English for years and I still cannot master it. And now, I have to learn Thai using English because I live in Thailand. For me, learning Thai is a challenge. I think if I can speak Thai, then another opportunity to learn other language will be open for me. I’m waiting for that moment to come.
