" Please write to me in English. I want to share with you "Ideas".
First, I would like to point out about the expansion of knowledge or understanding to everyone. As the Great phelosopher of China once said,"To know what you know, and to know what you do not know is knowledge" . As human, sometimes we are "self centered," as we have acquired knowledge by learning about something. But as an educators or professionals, we need to understand and accept or to be open minded, that knowledge is progressive. We need to accept individually that,though we have learned a lot of things, but still our minds can only pathom a little of what is ahead of us. Especially, I would like to be specific to one of the present problem that Thai people are facing.
1.Culture/ language barrier
Some Thais' believed that if their young people or their youth would be able to speak the International language(English language), they will lost their culture, tradition and customs. Of course not all believe like these,but this kind of ideology have hinder the spread of English usage around Thailand. Some private schools are spending a lot of money, so that the student somehow will be able to learn the language. To be able to speak. But without the cooperation of every citizen, still these will be so hard to realized. Remember the Song, "No Man Is An Island" ? "No man stands alone." I am really convinced that if you really want progress, or we say more progress in our country, we need to be open minded with an open heart, you are changing for the better not for the worse. Am I right? If you are a Thai, and you're fluent in English still you are Thai. Your knowledge did not change your blood and your color. Deep inside yourself still you are a pure Thai. For me I am proud of who I am but even I speak a lot of languages it doesn't change me of who I am. But I'm happy because I can work anywhere, in my country, or in any country when there are oppurtunities. The only reason? I speak the International language, and that is English. One more last thought before I close these letter, I want to share with you the saying that says, " oppurtunity may knock only ones' If you missed, it may not come again".
