Title

Siam: Kenneth's Second Year Language Exam

Subject

Thai Language

Description

Margaret stopped her language study because the strain had become too much. Kenneth went on and took his second year exam. He passed all the tests, but he was downgraded because the teachers had to grade him on the basis of two years in the country rather than how long he had actually been studying the language.
