I met my Thai University friends recently and we all went to restaurant and bar. There were about 10 of us all drinking and chilling out.
I’ve known these friends for 3 years now, and they are a large part of the reason why I decided to learn Thai and other languages too.
I see them every month or so, and it’s really cool to help gauge my progress with the language. They are all completely fluent in English, but now when they switch to speaking Thai I can still get the gist of what they are talking about!
In the bar, the lights got darker and the music got louder, and then people were getting into the party mood and started dancing.
