So one of my Year 1 students, is a cute little girl and her nickname is Cookie… Adorable.
Other good and easy nicknames for me to pronounce are Anne, Joe, John, Fern and Mai.
Some other more random ones are Shampoo, Cream, Bang, Play, Click, Night, Bin and Gecko.
I would like to know if the children choose these nicknames or if their families do.. either way, how do you end up with Shampoo as your nickname?!
Theres also Thai nicknames, can’t really pronounce them … Bayok, Gannam, Prayow, Namtow, Pom, Satang and tap teem.
Day 3 of teaching- involved lots of laughter as Teacher Zo tried to pronounce the kids Thai names.. no chance!
