    Schooling for TG in Phuket

    My GF called me today asking if I could have a look on the interent to find somewhere in Phuket she can learn to Read and Write in Thai (YES Thai). She left school early and did can only read and write a very little. She now wants to learn more so she can get another job and to assist with learning English in the future.

    Any one know of any places that do this and could help us? any idea of Prices? I understand there are places for Falangs to learn Thai, but may be a little different for a Thai to learn Thai. She is Issan, can speak Lao and Thai but cannot read or write either.

    Anmy help would be great.

    I did not think it would be too expensive as they tend to look after eachother. That would be great if you could pass it on.
    Thanks to you and Mrs W in advance

    I dont expect her to be in LOS for 6 months, if things go to plan I would want to speand as little time apart as possible. Do you know of any of these Tafe Equiv places in Phuket Town?

    Thanks for that. i did come accross that on Google, 2 schools there that could be of use. I knwo there are private tutoring lessons for english speakers to learn Thai, would they have a similar thing for Thais wanting to learn to read and write in Thai?

    I was not aware of the 500 hours of English lessons with PR. That may be handy in the future. The whole marrige thing still scares me a little ATM. Even more the sin soht.....
