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.

Lacking of a good educational foundation.

Thai learning style focus on remembering more than practicing.

Personally, I think that Thai education system isn't provide an English skills for students enough.
Normally, in the public high schools provide the English periods for students only about 1-2 hours a week according to the central curriculum specify that each school has to provide the foriegn language period for students 80 hour a year.
As I mentioned above, it is just a small amount of time for learning so the government or the accessory should concern more about this problem.
Moreover, Thai is becoming a part of AEC so English is the base which everyone has to be educated.
So the best begining point is providing enough knowledge about English skills to our teenagers because they will become a strong power for Thai development in the future.

In my opinion, the confidence is the thing that most of student do not have.
Most of them afraid to speak English wrong. Teacher should engage student to speak English
by using ffun activities or else.

In my opinion, The reason that make Thai students can't speak English well cause from the English teacher in Thailand focus on teaching grammar more than vocabulary, pronunciation, and speaking. These skills are the basic of English that we should know. Teacher should motivate student to speak English more than this. There are many interesting activities and strategies to help student improve their English skill. Try to use the fun activities to teach them that can help them change attitude about English and give more attention to study English.

A lot of reasons to focus on.
Start from me who is the student and is trained to be the English teacher.
I truly start to practice English when I am the university student.
When I was the high school student, I never realized for the value of studying English
because I rarely had the opportunities to meet the native speaker or used the language in the real situation.
So I think the opportunity is very important for Thai students especially in the countryside of this country.
There are many causes to make Thai students cannot speak English well.
From my opinion, I think they can speak but it has to take time to prepare and practice.
Sometimes, opportunities to practice is very important. Thai students need the change of Education system.
How can they speak if the environment doesn't help them to express what they think.
And we emphasize on the examination, most students are taught for doing the examination not for communication in daily life.

I think Thai students speak English only 3 hours a week. they do not have chance to speak English even in the English classes. Teacher might teach the lesson in Thai, which make the students cannot speak English. We have studied English at least 12 years but we can even remember simple words.

Due to the fact that speaking English is one of English skills.
No practice, no perfect !
They maybe don't know the benefits of English.
So, they don't have the inspiration to practice it as well.

Actually, Thai students learn English as a minor subject.
They don't know how imprtant it is.
And the main reason is they are Thai, they use Thai when they was born.

In my point of view, there are 2 reasons.
1. They might worry about grammar too much.
2. They live in the country that hardly speak English language.
However, if they practice more and more, I am sure that they could speak English well.

I think Education system focus on grammar and grade.
So, students worry too much how to use grammar correctly while speaking.
Some students lose their confidence and don't have a chance to speaking in daily life.
Teacher is very important person who can motivate and support their students to speak
English in class.

Another reasons because when they say they worried about grammar.
All reasons make thai people can not speak English well.

Thai students do not use English to communicate in their real life so they lack the opportunities to practice English skills. To enquire languages, the learners must take a long time to be influent in any languages. So we have to surround ourselves with English. Though we do not have a chance to speak with foreigners, we can watch English movies, series, cartoon or videos to learn English cultures and language. Now, many media are easy to find just fingertips.

many reasons e.g.;
- nature of Thai students are quiet and polite.
- school does not teach or not teach to use it in real life.
- students think that it is not that important.
- English is a bit difficult for them.
- too worry about correction of grammar
- a lot more

in old day, English language was not important like this.
Maybe someone tried to motivate all youth and everyone to pay attention at it.
But then the circumstance was not like now. Foreigners and ASEAN was not coming out.
So, they didn't mind about how important of English.
Nowadays, everything changes .
if you can speak English, you will get more opportunities at work and anything.

I think Thai students can't to speak English because Thai teachers teach grammar than more speaking in daily life.

Most of Thais actually surrounded by Thais not native speakers, so i think it must be the factor that affects on their speaking abilities.

It's because of Thai education system.
They focus on what they have to learn to pass the test.
I mean like Gat/O-net. We don't focus on how to speak English well.
So we have have to change student's attitute.
Tell them the important of speaking English, create some interesting activities to make them improve speaking skill and encourage them to use it outside classroom.

I think many Thai students who think in Thai language when they speak English.
They think in Thai language and translate to English when they speak.

Because English is not their mother tongue.
They don't believe in themselves that if they try to speak, they will have more confident and can speak English.

Because they don't have many opportunities to speak.
As English is a foreign language in our country, all the children or even adult don't have chance to practice their knowledge.
This is considered the most important problem in our country.

You just delete the word "NOT" from the sentence "Why do Thai students con (not) speak English well?"
Haha. OK! Just Kidding!
I think, it's because their attitude toward English. Many This students thing that the subject is difficult.
This concept of thought prevent them from improving their English skills.
