Thai teachers blogging about the Thai language…

Ever since I came across her on the FCLT FB Group I’ve been hearing “she’s fabulous!” Jan studied linguistics at CMU (Chiang Mai University), and is just getting her blog of the same name, Jan Kannaphat, off the ground. She teachers via Skype or one-on-one in Chiang mai.
