Learning how to talk all over again

So it turns out that not many people speak English in Northeastern Thailand. Go figure. This came as a surprise to me, though I’m not exactly sure why – not many people speak Thai in the Northeastern United States…

I should have added “how to speak Thai” to my list of ‘unknowns.’ Seeing as how learning a tonal language from scratch sounds like it’s going to be a bit of an ordeal, I signed up for Thai language classes today.

I’ll start by learning “just trust me, as unlikely as this sounds, I have traveled half way across the world to help you for reasons that are difficult to articulate in a non-native language”
