Panuwat Pantakod and Hope Christina Deita, lecturers from the English for Business Communication program at the school’s Chonburi campus, met wet Pattaya Mail Media Group General Manager Kamolthep Malhotra Dec. 24.
They thanked the Pattaya Mail for hosting Paweena Phandontree and Padiwaladda Wongsuntorn during internships that began Oct. 8.
The newspaper’s managers praised the students and told of their achievements in the company. “Both worked splendidly with confidence to converse in English, which have made these two undergraduates much more special than other graduates we have had,” Malhotra said.

The Pattaya Mail regularly provides opportunities for interns in a range of media-related fields, offering real-world experience that provides more benefits than can be achieved in a classroom.
Padiwaladda said she appreciated the chance to practice English, “which I have been studying since forever,” and used it for work. During her internship she wrote headlines, assisted reporters and interacted with customers.
“I believe that I have gained more than expected knowledge from the three moths training,” Paweena added. “I have learnt things that I would not have been able to in classrooms, particularly, organizing events outside, meeting with foreigners conversing in many languages apart from English.”
