Some Pattaya city workers are working to improve their English-language skills in order to provide better service to foreign residents and tourists.

Former flight attendant-turned-English teacher Aapornne Supommanee led the July 26 course in conference room 231, Pattaya City Hall. Eleven workers attended the 3-hour seminar, which focused on commonly used sentences, correct grammar and syntax.

Senior Pattaya officials said they hoped the added training would impress foreigners and show visitors the city’s determination to provide better service.

In addition, officials said, they hope that training workers to speak multiple languages will reduce costs by reducing the number of staff needed and the time it takes to serve customers.
