When are the classes?

The Thai Foundation course is a two-week language course that commences every Monday throughout the year (with the exception of Songkran in mid-April and Xmas/New Year).

This beginner course is 15 Thai lessons spread over 5 days at 3 lessons per day at our school in Patong Beach, Phuket. Lessons are on Monday, Wednesday and Friday in the first week, and Tuesday and Thursday in the second week.

Class times are 10.00 am until 12.50 pm, with 10 minute breaks at 10.50 am and 11.50 am.

What will you learn?

The Thai Foundation course book uses simple phonetics to get you speaking from day one. You’ll start off with Thai pronouns and verbs to make short statements, then progress to negatives and question forms. You’ll learn how to use Can, Cannot and Can?, how to count in Thai, and use adjectives to describe objects. The course covers possessive forms, so you can say an item is ‘yours’, ‘mine’, etc. You’ll cover the different forms of the verb-to-be that are used in Thai, and finally days of the week and points in time. There are answers to all the exercises at the back of the book. In just 2 weeks of study you get a good grounding in the basics of the Thai language.

How much does it cost?

The Thai foundation language course costs 3,500 Baht per person for 15 lessons over 2 weeks and includes the study book.
