Everything is winding down as we say good bye to our ajaans and all the local people who patiently helped us as we learned how to be a PCV. A disappointment for me, but not a surprise, is that I did not pass my language test at the level needed for my job. The Language Proficiency Index is an international standard. In Thailand, the TCCO group (teacher trainers) need to pass at Novice High (my score) and the CBOD (community workers and my group) need Intermediate Low. As a result, I have to commit to a language tutor, which was my plan anyway. The bummer, besides not passing, is that at Reconnect, when we all get together in 3 months, I have to take it again. Final review is later this week with the BKK staff which is a formality as they go along with the recommendation of the training staff. I think everyone got the go forward. They still marvel at our group that everyone is still here. By now, usually at least 10% have left.
Please let me know if you have any particular topic you want to read about and if I have any knowledge I will share and hopefully not make up too much stuff! I get that from KayKay!!!!
