In my bedroom I have hung index cards of almost 50 phrases and in both English and Thai. I have placed them all over my walls, so that each day I look at the phrase in English, and then read it to myself in Thai. I am determined to learn as much of the language as I can this next year. My goal by the end of the year is to be able to spend a day traveling without needing to use any English.
Taped to my bedroom door is an index card that reads, “Happy to meet you.”
It’s official. I have accepted a teaching job in Thailand. Today I went to get a new passport and in the next few days I will be buying an airplane ticket. Over the next few weeks I am going to share pictures of the place that I will be living- Nakhon Sawan- which translates in “The Heavenly City.”
