- A Filipino teacher used her own native language in speaking to her Thai students
- She simply wanted to make them feel how it's like when they don't speak English during her class and would speak in their own dialect
- Because of what she did, netizens couldn't help but react to the whole video
A Filipino working in Thailand as a teacher uploaded a video where she spoke in Tagalog in front of her students.
KAMI learned that she also informed her students that she was recording the video and her students were fine with it.
Initially, she asked them if they would like to hear her speak in Tagalog.
As the students gave her their assent, she went on to speak Tagalog in front of them.
"Ako si Edge at ako ay nagtuturo sa inyong paaralan," said the teacher.
She immediately translated it in English so that her students would understand.
"Kapag ako nag-Tagalog siyempre hindi niyo ako maiintindihan, di ba?"
Seeing the bewildered and clueless faces of her students, Edge eventually explained to them why she spoke in Tagalog.
"In my class, I want you guys to really speak in English. When you speak your language, the way you feel now when I spoke my language is the same feeling that I feel when you speak your language," said Edge.
After she explained to her students why she did the experiment, they nodded their assent, having been able to fully comprehend the need for them to speak English in class.
Here are some reactions from netizens:
