Teaching English - Thai Proverbs



What did I learn when I was teaching today?
My schedule today was discussion.


Following on with my teaching last year and Thai superstitions I took a different path and asked about Thai proverbs - what did I find out?


Don't teach a crocodile to swim
Run away from the tiger and meet a crocodile
You cannot catch a fish with two hands
The lady ate at the table and sh*t on the roof
(กินบนเรือนขี้รดบนหลังคา  Transliteration: Kin bon ruen, khee bon lung kar)
Ride and elephant to catch a grashopper


Here is a link which explains the Thai proverb.
