The other thing is i need one more extension before im heading to America anyway.  I am worried that i will get the same treatment at chaeng wattana.  I really hope not. 

 

All i can say is i have tried my best.  Language has always been an achilles heel of mine.  Despite having a thai girlfriend and going to classes it just doesnt stick with me. 

 

I get that immigration might just say well dont bother with an ED visa if you wont learn.  But honestly i wonder how long it took them to learn English?! 

 

I would say my progress is slow but at least i know all the thai alphabet,  have a couple hundred word vocabulary, can count... I think it is ok for 7 months honestly.

The only thing you would have needed is a written document from your school, that you´ve attended all the classes during your period of studying. Try that next time, if there will be a next time.

So the guy tells me "i wont call your school because they will lie.  The school gets money from you so they will lie for you"

 

I had pictures of me in school,  texts with the school that my end date letter is for next month... 

 

The guy seemed to really be intent on harassing me.

Now all that said he let me through.  I suppose he could have deported me but why waste so much tine harrassing me to just let me pass anyway?!

Welcome to Thailand 🙂 Some are like that today, but it´s not their fault. That you can thank all the people trying to live in Thailand on the wrong kind of visa for.

Even if one sucks in Thai, I guess that after 7 month one should be able to have a simple conversation. They won`t discuss about physics with you, but saying nid noi killed it. Like always in Thailand they would have lost the interest after 3-4 answers in Thai. Moreover Thai ppl are super impatient. Whenever I am lazy to speak Thai and they know I am able a "phuud cha cha khap" makes them loose the interest:)

So, the IOs job is to accuse all foreigners to be liars and making life very difficult on a land border in the middle of nowhere. Are you foreigners all insane? Being treated like <deleted> on all entries by immigration and still staying. If this would happen to me in any country I'd be gone for good.

you're kidding right? Ever watch the Can./U.S./U.K./Aus border patrol shows? You think Thai imm. is stringent now wait till they really get rolling and catch up to their world wide counter parts. You ain't seen nothing yet..

The real purpose why most people get education visa in Thailand is to stay long term and not to study.

 

Immigration meets thousands if not millions of people every month and they must have met quite a number on education visa who could only utter 'sawatdee kap', numbers etc after learning Thai for several months.

 

So you can understand why they are wary of people who hold 'education' visa learning Thai.

 

I know of several people who have been in Thailand for nearly 10 years and still can't read/write Thai and can only speak kindergarten Thai.

Most Thai students get the tones wrong and not the consonants wrong.

The rules simply state that you need to attend a minimum amount of classes, this doesn't mean you actually have to learn anything there. If he suspects OP of not attending the required classes he should investigate the school.

I know of a few who attended the classes and not miss a lesson but when it came to exam day, he purposely went missing.

It does mean that you have to learn something, that is why they test you.

The average Thai people actually learn a minimum of 11 years of English and they still can't speak basic English with proper grammar. I met one Thai guy on the bus who said 'same, same' ... I was wracking my brain to understand him which I think he means 'I am going to the same place as you'.

 

It's just that Thai and English are so different grammatically and vocabulary wise, that it is difficult for either party to learn in a short time.

 

I heard that Chinese students have a much easier time because their languages are similar.

Can you point me to an official source which sets such a requirement or did you just make this up by yourself?
