I’ve been trying to learn how to learn Thai for a while now and even though they say it’s like only takes a day or something I think i’m just dumb. My 9 year old nephew read the book and can now read Thai in less than a day and yet i can not even remember one single letter seriously there must be something wrong.
I wonder how many other people have tried to learn another language something as difficult as the Thai language I’m sure is something other people have struggled with I can’t be the only idiot on the planet or am I?
I’ve tried all these memorization tricks like the one in the learn Thai in a day ebook which by the was was pretty good it really helped out other people but it really doesn’t work for me. I’m really not sure what I’m supposed to do next.
Going to classes to learn another language has always sounded like a drag to me. I mean I didn’t move to Thailand just to sit in a damn classroom. Honestly how people can come here and be English teachers is seriously beyond me. I wouldn’t last 5 minutes in the same position I’d probably end up murdering the kids or sleeping with one of the students but i’m like a total purve like that.
If you’ve ever come to Thailand then you’ll know that people speak Thai and that most of the people in Thailand can’t really speak English. I don’t know how they are going to fair in the whole ASEAN thing but let’s just hope the new generation start coming out speaking more English than the rest of the country.
Are you really bored with your life? Not sure what to do? Yeah neither did I. I spent years chasing my dream in America and it wasn’t until the crash of ’08 that I decided enough was enough and I should move to Bangkok. Why on earth would making me travel across the world to live in Thailand? Crazy right?
The reason why it’s made my life complete is because i’m no longer stuck in the cubicle and the office that made me so miserable. I don’t care how much money you pay me if you want me to show up to work at 9am every single day of my life that’s how you slowly but surely put me in a wooden box.
I honestly don’t mind working in fact it’s really good for me I enjoy challenges and if it’s not challenging then I don’t want to do it. Even though work was challenging for me back in the USA it just wasn’t enough. How can I expect to be happy if I have to show up to work every day. Really it’s not fun and then you have co-workers who are so annoying they smell or they just talk too damn much that’s when you know your life is ruined.
Thing about living in South East Asia is that you don’t need a lot of money. I used to have $15,000 dollars a month to play with now I get a tenth of that not because i’m working less but because really I don’t need that much money to live here. I can live easily in Thailand on less than a few thousands dollars a month in fact I know guys who live here on about two hundred dollars a week and still have a good time.
If you wanted to change your life like I did there are a number of things you need to do:
- Stop thinking it can’t be done
- Believe that you can do it
- Seek advice from people who have already done it
I promise you once you start asking around about how to make your life complete then you know what you must do. If you like wild parties getting blotto on the beach then Thailand is probably the number one destination for you because you can have it all.
There are also some really cool islands to go to if you wanted to but me I prefer the mountains in the north or the crammed people everywhere mammoth of Bangkok it’s a great city and if you like to party and have a good time this is where it’s done.
