Hello , my name's Mariel and I'm from Argentina. I'm a teacher of English and I'd very much like to chat with other colleagues from all over the world.
I'm looking forward to any invitation to chat and share ideas about English teaching in other countries.

Hi Azzy! I am teaching all levels at the moment because I own a private school together with two other colleagues and we have a good number of students of all age groups. To tell you the truth , I really like teaching adult students. I don't know much about English teaching in Thailand,but I can say that here in Argentina , learning this language is something very common and has become quite popular luckily!!
Regards from South America and write to me again if you want. Bye!!

Hi,
Actually I used to teach various kinds of students with many levels. In thailand and in my hometown we studied English since we were in the kindergarten but in government primary schools English is compulsory from grade 1 to six. However, they learn English only 2-3 hours a week. It is not enough for them to get expose to the language and in some areas we lack materials and English atmosphere as well as good English teacher. And many problems that I cannot tell u now. However, we as teachers do and try our best to build thier awareness and motivation in learning English.

Regards,
Sidan
