Yesterday my little brother Mink, who you saw in my several videos graduated from Law Faculty of Chulalongkorn University in Bangkok. My family, my relatives and I went to congratulate him and I would like to share some photos to show what the Thai graduation is like.
For Government universities the graduates will be given the diplomas by the HRH Crown Prince or Her Royal Highness Princess Pra-Tape or Her Royal Highness Princess Chulabhorn. Only the graduates are allowed to be in the ceremony hall. All the relatives and friends have to wait outside.
Every graduate must wear the graduation gown over the student uniform. The shoes have to be black with no decoration. Male graduates have to wear black socks, hair has to be short and no mustache and beard. Female graduates have to wear stockings, no hair accessories. Jewelry and accessories are not allowed to wear. Mobile phones are not allowed to be carried in to the ceremony hall.
When the graduates come out from the hall, they will take a lot of photos with friends and enjoy the cheering from their junior students.
I have a video lesson teaching how to say ‘congratulation in Thai here:
And this is me on my graduation day, oh well it has been six years already , but I still remember the joy I had 🙂
Learn Thai with Mod key learning points:
บัณฑิต [ban-dìd] = graduate(n.)
งานรับปริญญา [ngaan ráp bpà-rin-yaa] = graduation ceremony
ปริญญา[bpà-rin-yaa] = diploma
แสดงความยินดี[sà-daeng kwaam yin-dii] = congratulate
ยินดีด้วยนะ[yin-dii dûai ná] = Congratulation!
How is the graduation in your country like?
