UNESCO or the United nations for Education, Science, and Culture Organization recognizes and acknowledges many poets around the words, and one of such great persons is a Thai poet born about 250 years ago – Sunthron Phu (Thai: สุนทรภู่). He is considered by many as “the Bard of Rattanakosin”. He was born on June 26th.
His father was born in Klang, located in Klaeng district in Rayong province, Thailand’s eastern region. Sunthorn Phu himself was born in the western side of the Chao Phraya river in Bangkok or Krungthep.
Sunthron Phu was a keen note-taker and recorder of events and places, including people that he met.
He was a prolific writer and poet. His many notes and poems now function as historical records of Thailand in the past. The peoples of Thailand and the world owe him a great deal when it comes to learning about the past and Thai ways of life and traditions.
He was probable the father of Thailand’s soft power. In his long epic poem – Phra Aphai Mani (a 48,700-line epic poem), he conveyed the message of non-violence and the hero (Phra Apai Manee) has a pipe as his decisive weapon. not a lance or sword. It’s the power of music that would win over people’s heart.
This is the perfect combination – drinking black coffee and reading good books.
Hi My name is Janpha Thadphoothon. I am an English teacher in Bangkok, Thailand. I enjoy reading and sipping black coffee at the same time. I am now writing – or rather trying to compose a haiku in my garden.
I maintain my belief that there varve few joyful activities than reading and drinking coffee.

Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games and English Language Learning
One lesson I have learned from my English teacher whose name I would like to withhold is to seize an opportunity to learn the language when important events happen. At present we are having the 2020 Tokyu Olympic Games and we should take opportunities to learn the language e.g. names of sports, rules, and names of the athletes, including nations and nationalities.
I have learned many new words from the event:
Equestrian – a sport with horse controlling
Marathon swimming – I am sure they are strong people.
A sport where people throw hammers.
Fencing has nothing to do with fixing your fence.
Volleyball on the beach or Beach Volleyball

Who won the gold medal in shooting?
Sydney McLaughlin smashes world record to win gold in women’s 400m hurdles final.
Nowicki wins men’s hammer gold as Henriksen takes silver; bronze for Fajdek
This Advice Is Very Useful.
As a matter of fact, this advice from my teacher is still a useful and practical one. As a teacher of the English language myself, now, I meet reminding myself and my students to learn the language from big events.
