    Experienced Thai-English Interpreter/Assistant/Consultant

    Thailand - Tests: 4

    I am a native Thai who had been living in the US for 7 years. I can speak English and Thai perfectly. Living in the US has given me the understanding of Western culture, and being born in Thailand gives me a strong knowledge of the local norms. I have returned from living abroad in the United States. It was my desire to immerse myself in Western culture, language, thinking, and to experience the drive of Westerners as they forge their way through life with independence. I went to the US with education in the English language, but it was there that I discovered my ability to excel in areas other than language. I enrolled in university in the U.S. and learned that I could work with data, numbers, and technology as easily as I had worked with language. Since returning to Thailand, I have worked consistently in the capacity of a service provider for expats in transition or needing assistance with planning events or medical assistance, and as a host in a restaurant frequented by foreigners. I seem to have an innate ability to respond to the needs and attitudes of foreigners in Thailand.
