I am a native Thai speaker from the southern region of Thailand, fluent in both Thai and English. Currently, I am a Ph.D. student in engineering in the US. As a lifelong language learner, I love learning languages to explore new cultures, people, and places. I am also learning Chinese (Mandarin), Spanish, and Vietnamese. I used to hate learning foreign languages until I moved to the US at the age of 18. After that, my passion for learning languages developed. Having observed different teaching methods from teachers, I will make the lessons more relevant to you. 你好,我叫Don。我的中文名字是【荘俊雄】。我的中文水平是中级。我很愿意帮你学泰语。

I really enjoy learning Thai with Kru Don. He has experience with learning several languages himself, which helps a lot with the techniques he uses. The lesson flows with a nice conversation that is full of new vocabulary and the correct tone-use. Highly recommended:)

If you're multilingual / a polyglot or hoping to be one, I highly recommend Don. Don has an understanding on tones across several Asian languages, an understanding of the history of languages in SE Asia, such as some of the Sanskrit origins etc. - if learning a language with the help of another language is your way of learning then I highly recommend Kru Don!

I've taken a few lessons with Don now. He's a really friendly, knowledgeable and patient teacher. I'm pretty beginner at learning Thai but he does a great job of keeping the conversation going in Thai, explaining things that I'm struggling with and answering any questions I have along the way. Whatever your skill level is I'd recommend taking lessons with Don.

Another great speaking practice lesson with Kru Don. He is very good at pitching the level of Thai he uses to make it sufficiently stretching for the student, but without becoming too difficult. He is also very good at explaining things clearly and in keeping the conversation going well. Really enjoyed my lesson and look forward to another lesson soon.
