Our teaching methodology is different from the courses offered in many other language centers in that students will start learning Thai Script as early as the first beginner course, as we believe that it is more beneficial to start Thai Script early so as to prevent one’s over-reliance on the phonetic guide, as we believe relying on phonetic or “Romanized Thai script” causes more harm than good. Learning Thai script is the key to clearer and more accurate pronunciation of Thai sound as opposed to Romanized script which may not be sufficient to represent all Thai sounds and is visually useless in communication in Thai.
Our teachers are native or near-native speakers and are phonetically trained to ‘fine-tune’ your pronunciation from pronouncing like your own language (especially English) to pronouncing more like a real Thai. We will engage the students in Thai conversation by stimulating real-life scenarios that they will likely encounter in Thailand or with Thai speakers, so as to make classes as snook (fun and enjoyable) as possible. Emphasizes will also be given to building vocabulary and constructing sentences.
For those who need Thai for a more formal purpose, we liaise with the Thai Ministry of Education, and Chulalongkorn University, for Thai Competency Test for which certificate will be issued. Our courses will also be gearing towards that
WE ARE NOT JUST A CENTER THAT TEACHES BASIC PHRASES FOR TOURISTS!
