Seventeen year old Namfah Khumfu joined the other students returning to Minden High School this week after the winter break. The foreign exchange student from Chiang Mai, Thailand hopes to improve her skills with the English language during her stay in the United States.
“I can understand, but I can’t say it good,” Namfah explained.
The language has been the most challenging part of her exchange. Before coming to America, Namfah wasn’t very familiar with the language. Her understanding has improved over the course of her stay so she is more capable of finding the words she needs to express herself in English.
