Father Ray Children’s Home

With the Chinese nation becoming the second largest economy in the world, the people of Thailand know that knowledge of the Chinese language can only be of benefit.

Each Saturday morning whilst most of the residents of the Father Ray Children’s Home are learning English, a small group of children are receiving classes in Chinese, taught by the volunteers.

The classes only last one and a half hours, so the volunteers make the lessons as simple as possible, and also adding some fun to ensure the children retain what they are learning.

Each week the children greet their teachers with a traditional Thai greeting, followed by the Chinese translation, much to the amazement of the volunteers.
