There are many Thai students who think in Thai language when they speak English.
They think in Thai language and translate to English when they speak.
It is better if they change their thinking; instead Thai thinking, they think English when speaking in English.
Other way, they should learn like natural model like a baby who speaks in easy conversations naturally.
I think, if they would like to speak English well, they have to change the way they do think.

How many times do we get a chance to speak English?
2-3 hours a week at most. And you're wondering why?
Apart from in the classroom, we "never" get a chance to use English.
That's why.

I think they are shy and worry about the mistake.
The main point is teacher don't let's them to speak.
So they don't have a chance to practice and use it in their life.
It makes they think that English is not important thing in their daily-life.

I think there are several reasons why Thai student cannot speak English.
May be they lost opportunity to speak and shy to speak out.
If you can’t speak in English, you can’t communicate with foreigners or you are not enough confidence to go aboard. And you also can’t read English book. 
So, if you want to improve your English, be patient, don’t fear or be shy, but practice day after day.

Because Thai students don't think that English is important for their life, they usually speak Thai.
They just speak or study English only 2-4 hours a week.
I don't think that can help students to study well.

Let me talk about some cases that i had to find out,
Most of them didn't have a chance to talk in English and they didn't concern about how important of English language.

So, these become a reason why most thai students are not be able to speak English well.

Like P' Duke and Best said. They don't have chances to speak english.
But when we got the chance to speak they are afraid of making mistakes and don't want to speak at all. That's why they don't speak well.

I think it's because they don't dare to speak it out.
They don't wanna make mistake and fear that their friends will laugh at them.
One important thing, they have negative attitude toward English.
It's difficult. It's not their first language. Bla bla bla...
These thing prevent them from learning this subject.

Thai students don't have a chance to speak with foreigners or they're shy to speak with others.
Actually, it's difficult to make Thai students are able to speak English because they hardly not use English in their daily life.
Maybe they don't know how is English important which it make Thai students don't like English subject.
However, let them know the importance of English is one of the best ways.

They have NO CHANCE to speak English. They have maybe 4 hours per week to speak. that's why they cannot speak.

They have no opportunuty for speaking in English.
They use English just in class. It might not enough to practice and improve speaking skill.

In my opinion, the reason why Thai students can't speak English is they don't have a chance to speak with native speaker.
The best way to improve your speaking is practice with native speaker.

Thai students learn English as their foreign language not their second language.
As you can see, Thai student don't speak English after school or they don't even have
some foreigners to talk to. And, they also learn English just for exams. They think
they can make it if they study harder and harder. what is the result, can they really speak?
No! they still can't. Teachers also play a very important role in education system.
I don't want to talk much about that...

They don't have chance to speak it!
They just speak it in English class and another class or in real life they did't speak it.
Sure, it is second language and we are Thai, we use Thai language in daily life.
Sometime they afraid that they will speak it wrong grammatical so they choose not speak it out.
If they are not try to speak out, they will can not speak it.

They don't have the chance to speak English.
I will talk about some case which I have seen before.
I have a chance to teach student in p.1 in the tutor center.
He can't remember just the consonant in English.
I asked him when do you study English at your school.
He said at school teacher doesn't teach English. In my mind, I am so nervous.
Why don' they teach him ? I think this reason is the important problem which we have to solve it.
