Sawadee na ka khun Paddy ka, I am not fluent. Although I am half Thai I have been in America for most of my life. I will be studying Thai when I get to Chiang Rai. We will arrive the first week of October :) when I get set up I will send you our mobile.
Paddy we are moving to Chiang Rai, I will be working between Chiang Rai and Chiang Mai, I would love it if you had connections for my husband and I with members, and to also meet with you!! NMRK I will be working as Chief Development Officer for a Thai Non-Profit!
English is my first language, but I can now speak read and write Thai fairly fluently thanks to taking part in local activities. I have some books of guidance and, of course, the WND. Other than that I get most of my material and news from the internet ^_^
