    I can draw them again and post them here but to be honest I think it might be better to draw your own based on the sounds you hear from a native speaker. That way it's personalised for you and you're more likely to remember it.

    OK you've got 30 posts now so you can STOP SHOUTING! :hilarious:

    Hmmmm, physician, heal thyself? A man who represents himself has a fool for a client!

    Clich├ęs aside, I can't quite fathom how a teacher can teach himself using student-centred learning without creating a paradox. :biglaugh:

    In short, get a good Thai teacher, if only so you can converse with them in a quiet place. :smile:

    i thought it was spelled out quite clearly. theory and sarcasm aside, it can work. or at least i've made it work for me. of course having a competent teacher would be better but as far as i'm aware, they're far and few between.

    Always you seem to take things at face value, don't get the joke & completely miss the point. :happy1:

    The core of modern student centred learning is that the student teaches himself & to expand, learns from & is assessed by his peers. The teacher is only there to provide a framework & guide the process; hence the paradox!

    'Competent' Thai teachers are as rare as rocking horse shit I agree but we shouldn't throw the baby out...

    I'd be up for that. Let's get drunk in a random bar & agree to set up a business. I've done the same with every group of guys I've met in a pub over the last 20 years & as far as I can remember only good things have come from it. :biglaugh:

    thanks. :rolleyes:

    the OP asked a question and i replied. if someone picks up something from it, great. if you want to use to make silly points about your hilarious paradox, fill yer boots.

    What? Vygotsky, or...??

    - - - Updated - - -

    I think I get what he means by 'paradox'...but...pretty sure he's kind of trumping it up a bit - "paradox"? really? :thai wai:

    It can/should be an interesting path for thought - solo study n' class study (not nec. a paradox)- esp. for a classroom teacher (which crew isn't, he's a trainer), studying..

    Here's one thing: being in a lang. classroom of any kind is great for a lang. teacher
