Why the f-word doesn't upset me

Sometimes you have to admire Thai people's directness

If I am called 'farang' by a young Thai person I instantly point at them and snap 'sadparot! In case you didn't know, 'sadparot' is Thai for pineapple - so the young Thai, on seeing the irony in this, is usually amused.


My struggles with the Thai language part 2

My past four years of Thai study and how I have motivated myself

Many thanks to all the people who gave me positive feedback on part one of ‘My Struggles with the Thai Language'. It seems that a lot of other Thai learners out there have gone through similar experiences to mine. They hit what I call ‘the ceiling' and realized that it would take a tremendous effort to take their spoken Thai onto the next level.
