While our regular Thai language Jedi Rikker Dockum takes a well-deserved break, we continue our Thai language series with Hamish Chalmers, another noted Thai speaker, blogger, Tweeter and all-around nice guy.

As a teacher at a well-regarded international school, Hamish has some unique insights into how students of languages (Thai or otherwise) learn, what methodologies work best, and how teachers can shape their lessons to suit each students’ particular needs. Hamish also tells us how he learned Thai through pure stubbornness, how he hopes people use his website, and how much he loves Japanese pears.

In addition, Tony and Greg talk about last night’s Bangkok Podcast Christmas party, and want to give a BIG thanks to Dani and Martin for helping us with registration, as well as a wonderful, awesome gift that they gave us that makes all this podcasting rigmarole worth it.
