Re: "Language lesson for Thailand," (PostBag, Sept 10).
I have seen similar enthusiasm in young school students in Vietnam. While going around the Hoan Kiem Lake in Hanoi, I found many students striking a casual conversation with a foreigner just to talk and improve their English.
On the other hand, many Thai youngsters who spend millions to attend international universities located in Bangkok shun English. It seems they just want to socialise and feel proud of attending a hi-so university. While attending English-language classes they tend to converse in Thai.
