An English teacher in the Thai capital of Bangkok told today of how he awarded some of his students top marks in one of his classes - even though their work was of the lowest standard imaginable, and, would, in the UK, be called 'shite'.
The teacher, who cannot be named because it is me, gave ALL of the children in his grade 4 class a '5 out of 5' mark for their work on Tuesday, despite the fact that many had not even completed it, and those students that had, had made 'a right fucking hash of it'.
Language organisations in Thailand frequently inform their teachers that, as Thai people do not like to fail at anything, results must be 'massaged' so that those who the results are in respect of, are able to 'save face'.
Said I to my co-teacher Mr Gary:
"Just look at this load of fucking bollox! I've never seen such shite in all me life! Top marks."
