More than 50 children of Royal Thai Navy families improved their language skills at a three-day English camp at Thien Talay Beach.
The April 9-11 event was organized by the Navy Wives Association for 52 youths. Association President Pornjit Rhungrhengrim awarded the kids completion certificates at Rim Chob Rawee Club after the camp.
Nine volunteers from Rangsit University and a mix of foreign and Thai teachers from Wat Pa Pradu School administered lessons during the English camp. It began with games, singing and dancing to let children interact and use English phrases and vocabulary.

On the second day, kids were split into three groups that focused on vocabulary, painting and cooking. The workshop wrapped with storytelling and a review.
Pornjit said the predominance of English around the world makes it important for Thai children to learn the language, particularly as Thailand prepares to enter the ASEAN Economic Community in 2015.
