Education Ministry joins with British Council for online English tests

The Office of Basic Education Commission and the British Council are preparing to launch an online English test system for Thailand.

The move followed Education Minister Teerakiat Jareonsettasin’s meeting with Professor Barry O’Sullivan, head of assessment research and development of the British Council London in the UK last Friday.

During the meeting, Teerakiat invited the British Council to serve as a consultant for Thailand’s plan to implement online English tests.

Teerakiat said he expected the plan to cover both formative and summative assessments.

He added that he also hoped that the online system would be integrated into boot camps or intensive training for English teachers.

The Education Ministry has planned online assessments for Prathom 3, Prathom 6, Mathayom 3 and Mathayom 6 students.

The British Council London will inform the British Council Thailand of requirements needed for training Thai teachers who are in charge of teaching the English language.

More discussions with the Education Ministry will follow to develop the online assessment system.

It is likely that the system will focus on listening and reading first, before expanding to cover speaking and writing.

The online assessments will be launched in February 2019.

Now it starts again, with begging and no information and when people have questions, they will not be answered. This is almost impossible to believe. Playing on people's feelings.

Wait a week or two.  Then have someone call him (a Thai) and inquire about having work done.  Have your Thai arrange to meet him somewhere.  I think you can figure out the rest.

shame to end this way as he was one of the interesting vloggers and his vids came across ok. but as you get popular and draw a fan club you also come across the haters as well, the jury is still out in some peoples minds which i can't blame them as this is really an odd one. vids keep getting deleted and so on. but you can't fake a death that easy, you need a body, it's registered, and i expect there will be a clip for the funeral, the well wisher are giving their condolences in their droves, not forgetting the donations which must be pouring in by the minute.

Graham Briar is really gone. Share your thoughts, good or bad. I don't care.

I am trying to obtain the home address of a Mr Somsak Guanngooleuam the contact number I have been given is 098.1264992 he resides in the Johar region of Korat and purports to be a painter and decorator. He contacted us through a painter and decorator that we used before in the Sung Neon area and we met him in a condo we purchased at Dream Park Condos he gave us an estimate of 23,000. baht to wallpaper and supply blinds for the condo on us accepting the estimate he asked for a deposite and we gave him an initial sum of 8,000baht leaving a balance of 15,000 baht to be paid on completion of the job. Briefly he never turned up to carry out the work on the agreed time and date and despite police calls to him never attended the police station as agreed, the police have told us that this is a civil matter and we need to proceed with any action through the courts. I need this persons home address to carry out any court action as he has obviously pocketed our 8,000 baht and will not carry out any work or keep any appointments. Merwalk.
