Today was the Varee Chiangmai International School primary sports day.
Below are a few images of the winners.
Kru Kae and I are extremely proud!!!
Tomorrow the children of ep1 red will be going to the 700 year stadium to support and cheer for the participants. There will be a cheer leading pageant, dance choreography competition, teachers’ races, school parade and much much more.
The children will not need to bring their big school bags nor their learning materials.
Could parents please ensure that their child comes to school with a small bag (not their usual big school bag), some pocket money and 3 small bottles of water.
Parents are welcome to join in the fun from 3pm.
Finally the whole day is expected to end at around 5pm, so we would like parents and guardians to pick up their children from the 700 year stadium at this time.
It would be a good idea to come maybe about 40 minutes before this time.
5. การแต่งกาย: ในวันศุกร์นี้เราจะมีการแสดงชุด The one that got away อีกครั้งดังนั้นในนักเรียนแต่งชุดวันงานประจำปีหรือหากใครที่ไม่มีให้แต่งชุดตัวละครการ์ตูนที่ชอบ แต่งหน้าทำผมมาให้เรียบร้อยจากบ้านในตอนเช้า
Das erste Schuljahr (EP1red) ist bald zu Ende und ich schaue auf eine wirklich spannende Lernzeit zurück, die ich mit meinem Sohn erleben durfte. Der Einstieg war für Pepino recht schwierig und streng. Zumal er die ersten paar Wochen zum ohnehin schon umfangreichen Lehrstoff noch Zusatzunterricht in Englisch absolvieren musste. Nach meiner ersten Einschätzung kam dadurch die Freizeit schon etwas zu kurz.
Mehr und mehr durfte ich aber feststellen, dass Pepino schneller lernte und sich im Schulbetrieb gut integrierte. Ich stellte mit Freuden fest, dass Pepino zunehmend motiviert und lernwillig wurde. Er erzählte mir viel, was er alles neu gelernt hatte. Ich gewann den Eindruck, dass Teacher Chaz eine sehr grosse Fähigkeit hat, die Kinder zum Lernen zu motivieren und zu begeistern. Seine Didaktik und Methodik ist beeindruckend. Ich war alles in allem begeistert über die die Lernatmosphäre die Teacher Chaz ermöglichte. Ich bin auch überrascht wie selbstsicher und umfangreich Pepino nun Englisch spricht. Ein herzliches Dankeschön an Teacher Chaz!
I am very proud and honoured to have read your wonderful comment! It has been your dedication towards your son’s education which has allowed him to do so well in my class! Thank you so very much!!!
My kindest regards…Teacher Chaz.

approfitto di questa occasione per ringraziarLa dell’ insegnamento che sta dando a mia figlia Sonia ed ai suoi compagni/e di classe. In questi mesi del primo anno di prima elementare, ho visto i netti progressi di mia figlia sia nell’ inglese parlato (accento, scelta di vocaboli, ecc) che in quello scritto, e nella lettura.
Sonia parla molto spesso di Lei in termini positivi e da quanto posso vedere, Le e’ molto affezionata; a testimonianza che il Suo stile di insegnamento e’ efficace e che esercita la professione con passione.
ก่อนอื่นต้องขอบอกเล่าว่า.. ก่อนที่จะตัดสินใจให้น้อง idea มาเรียน หลักสูตร EP ยังมีความกังวลว่าลูกจะปรับตัวได้หรือไม่่ แต่ด้วยความเชื่อมั่นใน ร.ร.วารี จึงได้ตัดสินใจส่งลูกเข้ามาศึกษาในหลักสูตร EP หลังจากที่ได้อยู่ห้อง EP1 red
มี T.Chaz และ ครูเก๋ เป็นครูประจำชั้น ก็เห็นความเปลี่ยนแปลงในตัวน้อง idea โดยเฉพาะในด้านภาษาอังกฤษ น้องมีพัฒนาการในด้านภาษาที่ดีเกินความคาดหมาย กล้าที่จะพูดกับครู น้อง idea บอกเล่าเสมอว่า T.chaz สอนสนุก มีอารมณ์ขัน ตลก และมีเทคนิคการสอนที่ทำให้นักเรียนสนใจในการเรียน ทำให้ idea มีความกระตือรือร้นที่จะไปโรงเรียนในทุกๆวัน แม้กระทั่งผู้ปกครองเองเมื่อได้มีโอกาสพบ T.chaz ก็สัมผัสได้ถึงการดูแลเอาใจใส่นักเรียน ทำให้ครอบครัวของเรามีความสบายใจ หมดห่วง และมั่นใจว่าน้อง idea จะมีพัฒนาการที่ดียิ่งๆขึ้นไป ครอบครัวของเราต้องขอขอบคุณ T.chaz และครูเก๋ มากๆ
นะครับที่ให้การอบรมสั่งสอน และดูแลลูกศิษย์ทุกคนด้วยความเอาใจใส่ที่ดีมากๆ และผมก็เชื่อว่าผู้ปกครองของนักเรียนในห้อง EP1 red ทุกคนก็คิดแบบครอบครัวของเราเช่นกัน ขอบคุณครับ ( thank you very much )

Sawasdee kha Teacher Chaz,
My name is Arm- Anchanika, Sun”s Mom.
I have decided to move Sun from Montfort Primary School to Varee School because Sun asked me, he wanted to study at the same school with his brother ans sister.
I knew Monfort education system but i do believe that Varee is much more suitable for him . Sun really likes the school environment building,etc. I first worried about his new classroom because he came late after school opened for 2 weeks. But I still believed he can adapted to his new school friends and environment.
Sun starts telling me a lot of stories when he came home about new school. He seems to enjoy it very much.His writing is surprised me and his English skilled is getting better everyday too. I think I made a good decision to move him to Varee.
Lastly, I really appreciated what you have taught him in the classroom.The way you teach him is so fantastic & different from any other teachers. for example , You show sample, let them learn, touch, and understand things. not just memorized it like the old school. I am so glad that Sun has you as a teacher.
Merry Christmas n a happy new year teacher from r family. Thank you goes to you for all you did for r children. You r one of the best teacher iqjot ever met n we e proud she s yr student.

Richie & Bow
Hello Bow and Richie, thank you so very much for your beautiful comment! I have truly appreciated your trust and faith in me, ever since Kevin was in pre-kindergarten!! I wish Kevin and indeed your whole family the very best!!!
Dear teacher Chaz
Onwara English skill has improved a lot. I’m proud of her very much.
She can communicate with teacher and friends quite well.
I’m pleased you are her class teacher. She always tell me she greatly appreciate you.
Thank you again for your kindness. You are her great idol both with teaching and manner.
I would like to thank you for the wonders you are working with Norman and indeed all the students in your class. Norman’s spelling, reading and writing are getting better every day. He loves all his lessons and respects your methods. Norman understands how much progress he has made under your guidance and tuition. I hope when Norman moves up a year to EP2 there is a similar caliber teacher to continue his education and progress.
Why don’t you put in for promotion and move up a year and take the class with you, all your students and their parents would be very happy.
Hello Teacher Chaz. This is Jason and Jaxon’s Mom and Dad. We would like to express our appreciating for your hard work on improving the boy’s learning level. Their Mom, Ping is very happy seeing the boys progress and that they are enjoy learning. We know that in their early years it’s important that they get a solid academic foundation that they can build on. I’m sure the boys will appreciate what you’ve done for them later in their life.
08/12/2014 Creative Writing:
A year ago (while Roman was still in Kindergarten K3) I saw a similar exhibition of EP1 Red pupils and I was wondering if these documents were really independent work results by each individual pupil.
This year now following and observing Roman’s progress in English (he started from absolute Zero) I like to take the opportunity to express my gratitude and respect to Mr. Chaz for his engagement. He has the rare gift to motivate the students using a balanced mix of care and challenge. Beside Writing and Spelling it even impresses me more to see how Mr. Chaz encouraged the students in such a short time to express their thoughts, feelings and logic in connected sentences practizing a completely new language. Thank you, Mr. Chaz!
Mr Berndt, Thank you for your enthusiasm and faith in my abilities as an English teacher. It has been your support and guidance which has allowed Roman to do so well at school! Thank you so very much for your beautiful comment. It is much more than I deserve. Kind regards….Teacher Chaz.
By Ian Buxton (*Benji’s Grandfather)* EP1 Red pupil Class of 2012
I have had the pleasure to have known Chaz for around 4 years, when he was teaching Kindergarten students in the school my grandson Benji is a pupil. On the occasions I have seen him teach he has a great style which is received in a very positive and interactive way by his students.
Chaz went on to take the English Programme Primary 1 position as the years went on and when Benji was moving up from Kindergarten I requested that he was admitted to Teacher Chaz’s class. He spent a year with Chaz and I have to say Benji was motivated and interested in all the subjects especially in science.
For me it was a pleasure to hear Benji talk about Chaz’s classes and how good they were. Combined with Chaz’s teaching was some extra work me and Benji did at home, which sent my grandson to another educational level. The point I am making in these comments is the level of education he received from his Primary 1 class with Chaz.
Teacher Chaz’s passion for teaching is real, he is motivated, keen to help and really cares how his students perform. I was very pleased with teacher Chaz’s work with Benji and how he developed, and I wish Chaz all the success he deserves.
I understand he has improved his qualifications over the years but it’s not just about qualifications he has the gift, the gift to teach. He makes studying fun and interesting and the students respond accordingly.
(REPLY BY TEACHER CHAZ IN RESPONSE TO IAN BUXTON)
The e-mail you have composed is in my opinion much, much more than I deserve.
Thank you so much!
Benji’s success in his English learning, is primarily down to YOUR dedication, passion and love for him. It has been you who has to be thanked for his educational success, not me.
I wish Benji and your family all the very best in life.
It has been my absolute pleasure to have known you and Benji!
That was wonderful teacher. Thank you so much for lovely video. Would love to.see more in future ^-^ I can see lots of improvement especially in my daughter iqjot. Her self confidence improved alot. Every children seems able to speak and understand English very well in a short time of the first term, amazing ! Thank you so much once again kha ^-^
Iqjot has been listening to “Dora goes to school” since years but all she used to do was to see the pictures and listened to me while I read it out. Thanks to teacher chaz as now when I asked her to try reading…. she could easily read out the whole book ^-^ So glad that now my baby can read English story books. Excited to get her new one now ^-^ thank you once again ^-^
Dear Iqjot’s Mother, I am so happy that Iqjot’s reading ability is continually increasing inside and outside of the classroom. It is comments like yours which make me feel very proud to be an English teacher in Thailand. I remember teaching Iqjot when she was in pre-kindergarten and it is absolutely amazing to see how well she has progressed. Thank you for your comment and I know Iqjot will continue to excel in both her English and Thai studies. Kind regards….Teacher Chaz.
Thank you so much for your beautiful comment. I am so happy that your daughter is enjoying summer camp in EP1 Red and I am certain she will be just as happy throughout her time in my class. I remember teaching Iqjot when she was in Trieme Anubaan (pre-kindergarten). She must have been about 2 or 3 years old back then. I am very excited to be her teacher in EP1 and I know she will make you and me very proud! Thank you and my kindest regards……Teacher Chaz.
Thank you for lovely pictures teacher chaz. You’ve gained my princess’ s confidence within first three days of summer school. She used to cry alot when ant semester starts but just three days when she had a chance of staying home as there was a family gathering st my house, my baby choose to come to school half day instead of taking the full day leave. Thank you so much and I hope she carries to love to come to school like this whole year through ^-^
Just a thank you for all the dedication and work you have committed for the first semester. Benji is very happy in class and looks forward to going to school each day. He has made lots of friends and continues to excel in his studies. I have been away quite a lot this year in the UK and am so pleased to see Benji getting the attention he needs at the school combined with the care he receives at home helping him to thrive with his life in all aspects. Please accept my thanks to the great work you do and that you receive the pleasure from the work with the children that you so rightly deserve.
Thank you for your support and faith in me over these years as I also taught young Benji when I was a kindergarten teacher. Benji will continue to go from strength to strength because he has such a good family foundation. I will endeavour to ensure that he continues to remain interested in all the subjects that I teach him! Thank you once again and I look forward to an equally positive final term.
Hello teacher Chez…
One semester ago .
Daughter Minnie had to learn English very well. And attitude towards learning English mission . Like most learned over Thailand say and have confidence in themselves quite well in English class , just four months.
Minnie daughter learn English well. Speaking , reading , writing , vocabulary learning is excellent . Scores each time with joy and excitement
Thanks very much teacher chez.Excellent teachers. Semester 1 ago.
Thank you very much for your continued support. Minnie has progressed immensely since starting EP1 Red especially her confidence to speak in English. I know she will continue to do well because she has your support and guidance.
The 1st semester just passed by and I’m very happy to share you that my little Trong had changed a lot. From the old day in his preschool he often asked me not to take him to school but this year in EP1 Red once the end of term 1 is reached, he told me that he don’t want the school close and he’d like to go to school everyday . And he often shared me that he love to study with T.Chaz in every subjects and sometime he imitated to be T.Chaz at home while I was acted as his pupil (from his acting I also able to imagine how energetically you are while being with them and why all children love you). I remembered that from his 1st school day at EP1 Red, he can’t understood the simple question like; what’s your surname or what’s your nick name? And you used to told me that don’t worry he will able to understand & communicate in English at the end of term 1 and even improve his norm of slow-working and at that time I’m hardly to believe in you but today you already proved that. Even though Trong English skill including other abilities may not good as good as other pupil in EP1 Red but he has great improvement beyond my expectation and I’m really happy that I made the right decision to bring him to you….. Thank you very much … Trong Mom.
Dear Kenny’s mom, it is always a joy to teach my pupils but it is even more special when I can teach them with the help of an animal which is very close to my heart and which I truly respect and love. Thank you for your regular comments they are truly appreciated especially this academic year!….Teacher Chaz.
Hello teacher Chaz.
Thanks for the information and media teaching. Minnie took the book to school 12 books to the school .. ( must be purchased reuse ? ) ���..
Mamee like the idea that good teaching and excellent teachers. And teach a homework Minnie evening I recommend her love for the classroom. Minnie returned home to play for a day to learn this. (Minnie says funny teacher. Fun learning materials) Minnie would say that I enjoyed the ride back home every day. My daughter is OK to enjoy ( mother – father is OK . too )
Thank you very much
Hi teacher chaz
Kenny finished his homework already. He surprised me since he’d do it by himself without translating the questions to thai. I feel happy to see improvement in his study. Thank you for everything ad I do hope that he’ll get even better in the near future.
Kenny’s mom&dad ^^
First of all, Thank you very much for informations I really appreciate. I’m Kenny mom name’s Keng. You might know Kenny already. He alway play and talk all the time and can not concentrate in one thing for long time and frightened to do something he never try before Such as English. From you experience I believe that you know how to treat him.I’m quit worry about him. If you have any thing or any suggestion please fell free to let us know
Thank you very much
Hello Kenny’s Mom, Thank you for your introduction. I will of course give you regular feedback regarding your son’s progress. One very important factor about the Varee Chiangmai School English Programme is the type and amount of home work we give to our pupils on a daily basis. Home work is extremely important as it allows the children to go over what they have learnt in school. Your support would be extremely appreciated and very beneficial if you would oversee and make sure that Kenny completes his home work every day. Please do not worry about him he will be fine, school has not even started yet! If you have any further questions please feel free to talk to me or E-mail me at my school E-mail address which is email@example.com Kind regards…..Teacher Chaz.
Thank you for all the informations and nice pictures. I’m very glad to know about how my children’s will be treated and learn his lessons and I’m sure that your experience will give him a good English skills.As I told you that Kenny is quite new in Varee and he hardly had any friend from his old school , moreover he has never experienced the EP program class before. Therefore he will be a bit slower but I hope that you and teacher Minnie will look after and find ways to improve his English skill in the near future. If there is anything that I can help or any suggestions please let me know. Thank you very much again.
Thank you for your comment Dr. Pui. I will do my best for your son and I will keep you informed about his progress and certainly on how you can potentially support him at home with his homework, which will be an important component of his English language development. Kind regards……Teacher Chaz.

Dear Trong’s Mother, Thank you very much for your comment. Please do not worry about your son Trong, I will do my very best to teach him to read, write and speak in English.

Trong will defintely have fun in EP1 Red and he will learn skills and knowledge which will stay with him! If you have any questions please do not hesitate to talk to me personally or e-mail me. Kind regards……….Teacher Chaz.
Dear Teacher Chaz,
We would like to express our sincerest gratitude for your teaching this year. Even though we knew that Zeta persistent disobedience and always create many problems in the classroom. We would like to thank the teacher really care and suggest that we need to improve and how to fix. We always respect your decisions and recommendations. And are willing to develop Zeta is learning habits in order to live in society. We are so thrilled that you were Zeta’s teacher this year. Thank you very much for taking the time to help her with to sleep in the afternoon-she had been struggling until you taught her those little tricks(wash her face). You made us realize that “Go to bed early” which is beneficial to the children themselves. Zeta liked you from the moment she met you. She often said to me; ” I love Teacher Chaz” You certainly did not disappoint! Zeta told me yesterday.
We realize that the English language is essential for our children to be used in their future. Zeta and Zato are lucky to have you as a teacher of English as the first since kindergarten. We were surprised and delighted that they have enjoyed. And when they were back home always sing a song apple apple a-a-a..baby baby b-b-b.. cookie cookie c-c-c… In the jungle, the mighty jungle the lion sleep tonight, Que sera sera song, that was amazing for our family we could do only smile ^_^ You should be congratulated for the innovative lesson plans you created. Which made them a pleasure to learn English by nature, because they were happy and had fun with you.
“We would like to make sure we will see you this summer and join your class when you start in May again!” We will certainly be there when you start up classes again.
And E-camp this year we are certainly confident that Zeta can participate and more enjoy happiness the E-camp than last year. Because she is in EP1Red for one year.
We are really thank you very much for your kindness again.
Zeta, Zato, Tum and Zos
Dear Teacher Chaz,
Zeta was in EP1Red over a period of almost one year, we see the fatigue, the dedication and commitment of you were taken care of pupil. This is not a simple one will do. In particular, we appreciate the efforts of you and to see a long time ago. It is no wonder why all the pupils love you. The most amazing thing is that we have seen, all the children have met you, they were smiled and happy to ran toward the front and the back and around. Each person is saying and snuggling up to your leg. That was a memorable and impressive with the innocent pupils and you.
In addition to parents, EP1Red is a second home that Zeta spends time all day. Zeta is fortunate to have a good teacher, which we are very proud that Zeta is assertive, discipline, responsible, etc…
Thank you very much for your kindness that you give her not only knowledge but you given her wisdom and vision.
And that is why we have desire to Zato in your classroom. Zato now have the opportunity to learn EP1, but the score was very much worried as we had to consult with you, we feel anxious and fearful. But your answer was “That’s not a problem” then back to our question, why you are confident Zato, we as parents need to give his confidence in himself like you. We wish Zato has the opportunity to be your pupil in next year. We recognize your hard work and we will try to carry on what you were tired and dedicated.
Thank you very much for your kindness. We all love you.
We will open the book. Its pages are blank. We are going to put words on them ourselves. The book is called opportunity and its first chapter is New Year’s Day.
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.
Dear Zeta’s Family, Thank you so much for your very kind words. All I can say is that if you love your job whatever it may be then you will be happy and do your best every day! I love teaching English to children and I love my job very much…this makes me happy! I will do my best for your son Zato next year and I am sure he will do fine in EP1 Red. I thank you for your 100 percent support and trust all year and I wish you all the very best for the New Year! Kind regards………Teacher Chaz.

which are obviously getting a very good result for Grace.
I must say, that at home, she tries to help in everything and is a wonderful daughter to me.
We do appreciate the great result you are getting.
I am as yet uncertain as to how many children will be receiving the funds raised on the 21st of December. Your support in purchasing stationary items I am sure will be much appreciated!!!! Thank you for your kindness and support………Teacher Chaz.
thank you so much for all your efforts, devotion, and sincerity in teaching the EP 1red children. You are a very good teacher because you make English so fun and easy to understand for students. I can see a lot of improvement in Aun Aun ever since she has been attending your class. Aun Aun is so lucky to have you as a teacher.

She is a very helpful and intelligent little girl whose confidence in using English is growing every day. Thank you again for your trust and support. Kind regards…………Teacher Chaz.

We would like to express our sincerest gratitude for your hard dedicated this term. Zeta particularly loves your classroom and always happy. We are so attempted that you were Zeta’s teacher this year. Thank you very much for taking the time to help her. Within four months,Zeta has developed a better way to go in most. And thanks for the good advice for adults on the subject, children should not eat dessert, should go to bed early, training children to be more responsible, teach children discipline, etc. These we have neglected to watch our children. Zeta loves you since you were the first English teacher in Kindergarten. Zeta fortunately, you were the first English teacher and sparked her to interested to learn in English language. Have the courage to speak and today toward foreigners. You certainly did not disappoint! We would like to attempt that you will be Zato’s teacher next year. We are greatly appreciated. Thank you very much for your kindness again
Dear Zeta’s family, Thank you so very much for your beautiful comments! I love my job very much and it is comments like yours which add to my love for my occupation as an English language teacher. I have always tried my very hardest to be the best teacher possible for all of my pupils not just academically but also in regards to good manners, respect, healthy eating (although I do not follow this one too well as I am a little bit over weight!!) and how to behave accordingly inside and outside the classroom. These are my own personal “life experiences/lessons” which I have learnt from my own Mother and Father and I am thankful for their teachings. Zeta is a very confident, intelligent and outspoken little girl who is doing very well in the EP1 Red classroom especially her English speaking. I have very fond memories of teaching Zeta in kindergarten and I know she has come a very long way since then. I am certain that Zeta will continue to do well in both her Thai and English subjects. Thank you again for your very positive comments. It is comments such as yours which make me extremely happy and proud to be a teacher in this beautiful country of Thailand.
Kind regards…………Teacher Chaz.
As a former teacher, and educator myself, I am very impressed with the amount of effort that teacher Chaz puts into this blog. Note, a blog like this takes an hour per day at least, it’s a surprising effort for someone to do after class hours, and nice to keep an eye on the children’s activities. Teacher Chaz’s commitment to his job using internet technology deserves full marks, well done.
Dear Mr. Andrew Bond, thank you very much for your kind words. Luka is progressing well in EP1 Red and I am very proud of his efforts and attitude. I sincerely hope that he is as happy with me as his teacher as I am with him being my pupil! Kind regards………Teacher Chaz.
Dear Mr. Gineer, I am very happy to have your full support and trust in teaching Geol. As you are already aware I taught Geol when he was in kindergarten 2 and I am extremely happy with the progress he has made in the EP1 Red classroom. Kind regards…………Teacher Chaz.

To whom it may concern,
Testimonial for Mr. Chirag Chavda (Teacher Chaz)
It is my great pleasure to write and to share this testimonial. My Thai granddaughter (Ms. Marnita Williams) has just completed Primary 1 (Prathom 1 in the Thai education system) with Teacher Chaz as her main teacher, at Varee Chiang Mai School.
Our family is totally delighted with the progress she has made and this is mostly due to the professional work and caring balanced behaviors and attitudes of Teacher Chaz.
Marnita’s English language capability has grown enormously and quickly, and she is now quite strong in all skills, she speaks English with confidence and without hesitation.
Her grammar and construction and writing construction is excellent for her age, and she has a large vocabulary – all of this is due to the professional capabilities of Teacher Chaz. His professional knowledge in this subject area is impressive, and he knows well how to apply aged based teaching methodology and technique and he quickly gains quality results.
Teaching and keeping the attention of 6 year old kids is far from easy and Teacher Chaz is excellent at all aspects of classroom and student management. The children know to pay attention seriously when he speaks and they know he will tell them quickly when they are not listening, but he knows how to do this well without frightening the children. He also maintains a nice fun balance in the classroom atmosphere. Plus he has good skills, used consistently, to ensure the children are totally understanding lesson content and understanding his instructions, etc. He is always well prepared, materials are well constructed & well presented, and everything appears to be planned well, short and long term.
Teacher Chaz is also excellent at teaching science, social studies, geography, maths, and more and my granddaughter can discuss all of these subjects at home and, for her age, she can do it well.
Homework is monitored well and the children know well that homework must be completed on time, and there is always good feedback.
Teacher Chaz has been quite proactive in terms of approaching parents to ensure they are comfortable with their child’s progress etc., and he carefully and quickly reports problems with classroom behaviors, learning difficulties etc., to parents. Plus he is a good listener when he is approached by parents, and he tries hard to accommodate the comments and requests of parents.
I offer my best wishes to Teacher Chaz for his academic career and for his personal happiness. And from a parent / family point of view I highly recommend his teaching services. Please do not hesitate to call me if I can provide any further comment.
Kind regards Alan Williams Ph.D. (Dr. Professor Alan Williams) Chiang Mai, Thailand

ผู้ปกครองด.ช.ชนกภัทร์ ปิ่นวิเศษ นักเรียนชั้นอนุบาล 3 Green
โรงเรียน วารีเชียงใหม่ ซึ่งเป็นนักเรียนวิชาภาษาอังกฤษของ Mr.Chirag Chavda ( teacher Chaz). หลังจากที่ลูกดิฉันเริ่มเรียน โรงเรียนวารีเชียงใหม่ ลูกได้เรียนวิชาภาษาอังกฤษกันอาจารย์หลายคนมาก ซึ่งแต่ละคนก็มีวิธีการสอนแตกต่างกัน การพัฒนาการของลูกก็ดีขึ้นตามลำดับ จนกระทั้งน้องได้เปลี่ยนครูสอนวิชาภาษาอังกฤษ มา เป็น Mr.Chaz ผลการเรียน ของ ลูกก็ดีขึ้นมากทันตาเห็น จากเด็กที่อ่อนวิชาภาษาอังกฤษมาก รู้คำศัพท์แค่คำง่ายๆ สนทนาโต้ตอบง่ายๆไม่ค่อยเข้าใจ อ่านตัวอักษรภาษาอังกฤษไม่ได้
มา วัน หนึ่ง ลูกได้นำสมุดโน้ตเล่มเล็กๆ (Jolly Phonic) ขึ้น มา แล้วเริ่มออกเสียงตามตัวอักษร ลูกอ่านออกเสียงได้ถูกต้อง สามารถอ่านคำได้โดยการพยายามออกเสียงตาม Phonetics ที่ teacher Chaz สอน แม้ว่าลูกจะไม่เข้าใจความหมายแต่ก็อ่านได้ถูกต้อง ดิฉันรู้สึกตกใจมาก พยายามทดสอบลูกอยู่หลายคำ จนอยากทราบว่าใครเป็นครูผู้สอนแล้วเค้ามีเทคนิคการสอนอย่างไร
จนได้มาพบและพูดคุยกับ teacher Chaz ว่าเค้าใช้วิธีการสอน Phonetic alphabet เป็นสื่อในการเรียนการสอน พร้อมกันนี้ยังใช้เสียงในการสอนให้เด็กๆ อ่านคำเหมือนการร้องเพลง ซึ่งเด็กๆจะเข้าใจและจดจำได้ดีเยี่ยม ซึ่งนับว่าเป็นวิธีที่ประสบความสำเร็จในการเรียนการสอนมากๆ ลูกดิฉันทุกวันนี้ตั้งตารอที่จะได้เรียนกับ teacher Chaz ทุกวันและมักจะมาเล่าให้ฟังเสมอว่าคุณครูสอนเรื่องอะไรบ้าง Finally, I would like to reiterate that Mr. Chaz or his teacher Chaz is a talented teacher and ready to bring all your talents to the benefit. Your organization is very much in it. Katy Perry Phillips March 4, 2010
