I am loving the school, the home, the city, and Thailand! This experience has been much better than I even imagined. All the people I’ve met are so kind and generous, and I feel lucky to have so many friends already. The students are wonderful and have been making progress quickly. I wish I was staying for much longer than a month.” ~ Elizabeth Hanks (USA)
