Thai English teacher Theeraphong Meesat has a novel strategy of boosting his faculty college students’ confidence in class and making certain they loosen up – by sporting outrageous outfits and make-up.
Theeraphong, 29, struts into his classroom on the Prasartratprachakit School in Ratchaburi province in a gray wig that resembles Lisa from the favored Okay-pop band Blackpink and eyelashes created from a feather duster.
Theeraphong typically referred to as “Bally”, said many faculty college students used to dislike learning English because they’ve been embarrassed by making errors. His stunts help break down the barrier, he said.
“Some students were scared… But now they are more curious and eager to learn what is going to happen in class,” Theeraphong said.
Many of his faculty college students said programs have been a lot much less boring.
“Bally will ask questions in class and encourage students to be confident,” said Metas Wiriyakitkaset, 15. “It’s really fun.”
