Nice to see them try to speak in English. As a teacher it is frustating to have them say the last sounds of words and the pronunciation is a big Challenge for the average Thai student. One student in this play could not say “please” well. Hope they learn to enunciate basic English sounds. PLEEEEEEEEEEEEEZZZ
English and Thai are very very different languages and my students are so brave to get on stage and put on this play in front of 200 people. Perfect pronunciation is what frightens EFL students the most, therefore the teacher should place more focus and attention on comprehension of both the speaker and the listener. Effective communication is the most important aspect of language learning.
I agree with that, language learning is all about communication.
