The Temple Stay and Retreat Program is directed by a very kind Scotsman Bhikkhu, assisted by an American monk. The Abbot, Dr. Apisit, is Thai and speaks fluent English.

Men and women from around the world have come to WSBR for retreat, Buddhist practice and education, as well as a program supervised by the abbot that can, with qualifications, lead to temporary samanera ordination. A recent guest is pictured here with the program director, on alms round in Fang: https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?v=10 ... =2&theater
The small city of Fang is a brief VIP or public bus ride north of Chiang Mai. It is a tourist area for hikers and bikers with famous hot springs parks and resorts.

I've also been to Wat Mahathat in Bangkok. If you find your way to Section 5, you can get meditation instruction in English. But again, the emphasis is on meditating rather than talking about it.
