Повседневная жизнь тайской школы

Thai School Life by Richard Barrow — познавательный блог про то, как устроена жизнь в тайской школе, от учителя, проработавшего там больше двадцати лет. Проясняет ментальные и поведенческие стереотипы тайцев, поскольку они закладываются как раз в школе.

Семиотика цветочного букета:

Every student comes to school with a bunch of flowers for their teachers. The flowers used in the arrangement are symbolic. Dok Ma Khue (eggplant flower) stands for respect because when the tree is blooming its branches bend down in the same way a student pays respect to their teacher. Ya Praek (Bermuda grass) stands for patience or perseverance because, although the grass looks wilted, it is still very much alive. Khao Tok (popped rice) stands for discipline because the rice is placed in a pan together and heated up to become popped rice. The Dok Kem has the same name as the Thai word for needle. So it means the student will be sharp-witted and brainy.

People have often asked me why I chose Thailand. I think really, Thailand chose me. I love the culture, the people and the Buddhist way of life. This feels like my home now and I have no plans to return to the UK.

Жаль, что блог больше не обновляется. Последний пост — пятилетней давности.
