The houses are burnt.

The houses were caught fire on 20 December 2017, at Phibun Mangsahan District, Ubon Ratchathani Province. The owner of the house was Mr. Ampol Duangjampa. The fire was caused by electrical fault. Ampol charged his mobile phone and flashlight and then a short circuit occurred. The fire spread quickly and terribly because of the wind. At that time, it was windy and cold, so a flame spread easily and quite fast. It even spread to Mr. Han Prada’s and Mrs. Sangwarn Nongkhaek’s house, which were next to Ampol’s house. Fortunately, no one was injured. The cost of this damage was about 1 million baht. Firefighters spent time putting out the fire for an hour by spraying with a fire extinguisher and spraying water with hose. Forensic Science staff of Ubon Ratchathani went to the area of the accident to investigate how the fire occur. The result was that a power outlet was too old and there was no cut-off system. Hence, it led to a short circuit and the fire started.

UBU students: What do you think about studying English as a compulsory subject? By Jaruwan Silachai

We asked some UBU student opinion by using the question “ What do you think about studying English as a compulsory subject?” “ For the first time, I did not understand why I have to learn English as compulsory subject because my major is Agriculture. I think it is not related. Later, I understand that why I have to learn it. It is important for my daily life, and it is necessary for my future. I think it is good to know English even though it is very difficult to understand for me,” Butsarin Anurak, a second- year student, Faculty of Agriculture said.

“ In my opinion, learning English is very necessary because I can use knowledge that I have learned to communicate and adapt for working in the future. I am studying Engineering, so English is important because I have to understand vocabulary related to Engineering. I never think that learning English is useless because it is good for me to learn though it is quite hard,” Metasit Bukoontod, an Engineering student said.

Kasamsart Thonglaed, a third-year student, Faculty of Engineering expressed his opinion. “I think it is good to know English because it helps me connect with other people around the world and it is important for my field. English is a universal language spoken by people around the world, so it is important to learn even though I am not studying English major directly. I used to worry about studying it as a compulsory subject but now I am comfortable and willing to learn because it is necessary and beneficial for my future.”

OPINION UBU Students: What do they think about wearing uniforms? By Chatuphorn Boonkrong We asked some Liberal Arts students about wearing uniforms. Most Liberal Arts Students’ opinion on wearing uniforms was determined by using the question “ What do you think about wearing uniforms?” Two students gave us their opinion. Miss. Orathai Ketkaew, an EC student, thought that uniforms make the society orderly. For example, children become obedient and adults have discipline. Uniforms are good for those who have a chance to wear, yet it reminds them that they are students. They should be good students and should focus on studying because their parents may look forward to seeing their success Miss Nattarika Singhan, a third- year student said that she prefers wearing casual dress because it is convenient when doing activities and easy to clean and do laundry. And wearing uniforms does not help her be more intelligent. It depends on how much she pays attention in class, yet if she wants to make it orderly, she will wear uniform.

Me and some third- year EC students visited several company sites and hotels in Bangkok such as Shangri la hotel, BFS Recruitment at Suvarnabhumi Airport, Devawongse Varopakarn Institute of Foreign Affairs and Bangkok Post Company. There were 2 instructors and 13 third year students who visited company sites in Bangkok during 13- 17 February 2018. We stayed at Suda Palace Hotel. On the first day, in the morning, we went to visit Shangri La Hotel, one of the best luxury 5- star hotel in Bangkok. We learned how hotel staff work, and we experienced various buildings and luxurious rooms such as Suriya and Chantra room. When we entered the rooms, we felt excited and surprised because the rooms were so deluxe. Then we had wonderful and delicious lunch such as Smoked salmon with witlof and rocket, pumpkin and leek soup and coconut tart with vanilla ice cream. When we were eating, we were taught how to use cutleries on a dinner table. After visited the hotel, we went to Siam Museum, which has a display of Thai historical artifacts. The museum is the best place for people who want to learn about Thai history, culture and custom. On the next day, we went to Devawongse Varopakarn Institute of Foreign Affairs. It is an institution which is a part of Ministry of Foreign Affairs. So, it is related to foreign languages. Two English teachers working there, gave us information about the origin of the institution, and how they work, how much English is important for people and how we can apply to work.

An EC student was so proud to get a scholarship of Ubon Ratchathani University last semester. Miss Suchanan Tarapan, a third-year student of English and communication revealed the information about the scholarship and how she received it. She knew about the scholarship from the advertisement which was announced at the faculty. The scholarship was for students who had an outstanding academic performance. She showed the strategies how she normally gets good grades. It is because she pays attention in class. When she does not understand the lesson, she does not worry or is not shy to ask teachers. She also sends her homework in time, so she does not lose points for that. Also, she usually reviews the lessons. After she received the scholarship, she spent her money from the scholarship wisely. She spent it on stationary and a new uniform then she saved all the money left to use for an emergency. She said that she was so proud of her accomplishment. It inspired her to continue studying hard for her good future. She is not only good at studying, but she is also good at doing activities related to English. For example, she was an English tutor and a teacher assistant. She participated in English camp. Also, she used to be an internship at Le Coral Hotel, Phuket. She said she was so proud that she had a chance to be a waitress there because she got new experience that she never faced before. It helped her to decide about her career in the future.

. Also, we saw several rooms that are used for working. Before we went to another company, we took group photos and gave them a souvenir. The next place was BFS ( Bangkok Flight Service) , a company providing handling services to many international airlines operating at Suvarnabhumi airport. We went sightseeing around the airport in order to see how airport staff work when planes land and take off. While we were watching, we were not allowed to take photos. Thus, we had to keep this experience in our memory. On 16 February, we visited Bangkok Post Company which publishes newspapers in English, to learn about the

origin of Bangkok Post, the process of publishing newspapers and how workers and journalists work and write news articles. The journalist giving us information, spoke English with us. When he asked us questions about the origin of the company, so we had a chance to speak English by answering his question. In the evening, we went to Humanica Company, a public company that provides human resource management solutions, financial and accounting services and company resource planning services to other companies. When we strolled around the office to see how office worker work, we realized that the vibe of the company was so good and comfortable. We enjoyed visiting the

company so much. On the last day, we went to the last place. That place was Wat Phra Kaew. We had a guide giving us information in English. We went sightseeing around the temple. It was fun for us although it was so crowded and the weather was extremely hot. Also, we appreciated the beauty of the temple while visiting. Companies we visited are associated with English, thus it is important for us, EC students to visit. Also, this visit program is successful because we learned new experiences, which will help us to decide about our career in the future.
