เรื่องเล่าครูอาสานานาชาติ ICL Songkhla ครูฝึกสอนจากอินโดนีเซีย
by Annisa Bhekti from Indonesia
What something in your mind if you heard about Thailand? Yes, I think about Bangkok and elephant. But I have a program in Songkhla province, Southern Thailand. Actually, I didn’t know about Songkhla before, but now I know that Songkhla is a beautiful place. I have a project with VSA during 2 months, August until September 2017. I teach at Watthungka School in Ratthapum district. Actually my subject is a PE (physical education) but there I teach English too.
I was happy to meet Thai people, I think that Thai people is a friendly, lovely, and respectful. First day, I arrived at school, all of teachers welcomed me very friendly, they were always smile and said sawadee kha/krub when meet me and meet each other. Is there something that make a Thai people respect each other?
I was so happy when I taugh students too, because the students were so cute, they could not speak English but they really exited when I tauch English for them. They were so happy if I told them to singing and dancing with English song. I hope someday their English language will be better.
For the food, I think Thailand has so many delicious food, although some food taste sour but over all is good. I’m a muslim, but Thai people very respect with me, for example if we are eating together and they have a pork in front of me, they will remove it and give me other food like chicken or fish. I fel that they are kind people, they are respect for each other, they are realize that difference is not a problem to respect each other, but difference is a value to make a color in life.
I’m not just meet a people of Thailand, I met other people for other countries too, they came to Thailand to be a volunteer. So we became friends and this made me learned new experience, and friendship. I hope someday we will meet again with different story.
Thank you so much for VSA that already gave me an opportunity to explore Songkhla, Thailand, and I gained many values from this program.
One more i said “experience is the best teacher for me”. Thank you.

“Hatyai is a district in Songkhla place where I and three of my friends carry out job training. Before implementing internship at Siam Tax Accounting. My first following
Joined for orientation week at non-formal education center in Songkhla. Met with the volunteers from other countries. Meet with them is a joy for me. Share stories and experiences that are useful to me.
After completing the training I was placed in Siam Tax Accounting for 3 weeks. As an economics student who was doing an internship program at a tax office, I helped some work related to auditing a company, such as sorting and checking traksaksi corporate taxes. During practice here I learn how to work with others, understand the task and work in a timely manner.
Siam Tax Accounting taught me how to be a professional and qualified workers as well as management time effective and efficient. Although the implementation of the internship in Siam Tax Accounting I confront the challenge of differences in language, religion and culture. It makes us more creative in communicating. Sometimes we use the help of translators and body language.
Many positive values that I got from all the VSA program is about mutual respect and respect and learn to appreciate the time. Because time is something that cannot be repeated so that all together should be a beautiful moment”

Sawasdee Krab .... Hello guys….
I'm a volunteer from Semarang State University (Indonesia). I lived in Thailand for 1 month. My project is an internship at Siam Tax Accounting. Siam Tax Accounting is a tax consulting and a financial audit. There, I learned about accounting and auditing.
My internship for 3 weeks. The first week, I learned about the accounting cycle. The second week, I learned about the audit. The last week, I learned about accounting software (express accounting). Every day I had to leave at 6:30 so as not to be late. Office hours are 08.00 to 17.00. I took 1 hour to get the office and if the misfire can be more than that. Memorable experience which departs in the morning and return the evening. Hahaha...
Although constrained by writing full Thailand language but it has been a challenge. I really enjoyed it because I learned a work culture, language, ethics, timely, and conservative.
An interesting experience had been living together with other volunteers. They come from different countries so that in addition to improving the ability to speak the English language and improve the ability to cook because I really like to cook. I really love the Thailand food.
Live at home with volunteers from various countries become more attractive. Every night there was a discussion that discussed even sometimes until late at night. Hopefully in the future be able to Thailand again to learn more. Learned society, culture, and everything.
See you again Thailand
