Bangkok in Thailand is a city, bursting with diversity, culture and contrasts. Expats live here in scores and having children here means they have to think about their education. Thai education is free, of which 9 years are compulsory. Children learn things like maths, science, Thai language, religion and culture, other foreign languages, etc. Unfortunately, a lot of the schools in Thailand are not well funded and some schools have a language barrier where Thai is the only language spoken in the classroom.
