Would you learn English here?

Thinglish is a wonderful language. Thai grammar and limited English vocab brought together to communicate with farangs.

You see a lot of signs like the above, this one made me chuckle because it is for an English Language School.

Joking aside I am very grateful for Thinglish and the Thais natural disposition to be friendly and outgoing to foreigners. Virtually everywhere you go someone will know a few words of English and every menu you come across has English translations. This contrasts with my Tokyo experience which proved almost impregnable.
