Dear Friends of Life Long Learning Payap,
The organizers of LLLPayap are thinking of you during this time of home confinement. Our team has come up with some learning opportunities for you to explore, as you strive to think about something other than the current Coronavirus pandemic. We imagine you are already receiving links for on-line courses, games, concerts, excursions, etc. Over the next two months we will share a few links with you that we have found especially good.
In addition, Rebecca Weldon (of our LLL committee) is producing some on-line study guides to expand our understanding and appreciation of Thai and SEA history, art, culture, literature, etc. We are pleased to send you the first of a series on Literature in Asia. This one focuses on the author George Orwell. Please see attached link.
Stay in touch with us and stay well! We hope that some of you will dig into George Orwell’s life and writing this week.
