Thai-English (Tinglish) on Facebook

This is a class project for my doctoral class at IUP. I created a Prezi presentation for a poster I presented at 2013 Three Rivers TESOL Fall Conference on Thai-English on Facebook. In the poster, I listed special features of Thai-style English used on Facebook. For the Prezi version of the presentation where you can manipulate the speed of the presentation, please click this link or on the following picture. As you play the Prezi presentation, you can also listen to my explanation on how the features of Tinglish work as well.

Learn Thai in Authentic Context –Curse Words

There were several times that I was asked to teach bad words in Thai. I teach my students bad words anyway (there’s no need to ask for it, really). Still, asking specifically for curse words is a bit much. As an aspiring academic, I believe learning words in context (authentic ones that is) is the best way to learn.

So without further ado, do enjoy this video.
