HUA HIN: -- A group of senior students from Klai Kangwon School in Hua Hin have been impressing tourists who come into the local police station.
The five young people have been helping the tourists, the police and themselves by acting as interpreters in English, French, German, Chinese and Japanese.
Daily News caught up with the group after a member of the public told them of the initiative.
The idea was a collaboration between the students' teachers Suchira Khreuaphan and Khanitha Malaiphong and the local cops who were having trouble with all the foreigners they couldn't understand.
So the M5 and M6 students are working at the station during the day at weekends and public holidays explaining about documents, procedures, fines and suchlike.
One of the students Fayada Bamrungpong, in M6 or the last year of high school, said that it was great to help out the tourists and the police with her language skills.
"And I get a chance to practice and improve my English as well," said Fayada.
