“One who never looks back to the beginning will never get to his destination” a quote that is really connected to the story. It is not bad to learn a new language in fact it gives you some good advantages because it enables you to communicate with other people. They say that “One language sets you in a corridor for life; two languages open every door along the way” meaning Knowing a foreign language a part from your mother tongue represents a huge advantage that can distinguish you from “the crowd”. But knowing TWO foreign languages clearly differentiates you from all the rest, by reflecting your good master of language skills and communication. In the side of Miss Phatuphats was showed a bad influence to others because she forgot her own language she covered up who really she was. On her other side about putting a lots of make ups on her face was not good it’s better to be simple because simplicity is beauty. Be natural love what God gave you. Appreciate what you have maybe you can change everything but not your heart not what you came from.
