Why do Thais when they are out in company with English speaking people still speak Thai to each other, even though they can speak English? I have noticed this a lot, now that I am well known enough to be invited for dinners and such. Don’t you think it is very rude of them to do this, as they know I cannot speak Thai?
Hey Eddie, Thanks for the email, but where are you living? Check the address of where you live? Let me tell you, my tongue-tied Petal, that you are living in Chonburi District – that’s part of Thailand at last count. That country where the native language is called Thai. Rather than them speaking English, it is you who should speak Thai. Or is it that you are worried about the Thais talking about you? Don’t worry about it. But always remember that even paranoid people can have enemies!
