About this course

The Level 1 course is for absolute beginners. English is used as the medium of instruction. This conversational course also uses the romanised Thai alphabet.

The course covers simple Thai dialogue (through the aid of English translations), basic grammar, vocabulary and expressions. It will also illustrate interpersonal communication etiquette and formalities on how to address others. Hence, students will learn to speak Thai through the use of the romanized Thai alphabet. However, as with any romanized alphabet, it does not accurately represent phonology of the beautiful Thai language. Students are advised to focus on the phonetics ad meaning of the words, rather than rely heavily on the romanized Thai alphabet.

Students will receive a Certificate of Completion upon completion of the course, if they meet the minimum requirements of 70% attendance.

Students requesting direct entry to any course beyond Level 1 must undergo a placement test. Click here to enquire.

Commencement date is tentative and may be subject to change without prior notice.

These include part-time group or private conversational Thai language/reading & writing classes for adults, Thai language training for businesses and preparatory courses for the Thai Proficiency Test. All Thai courses are taught by native speaking Thai Teachers.

Why Take Group Classes?

An advantage of signing up for our part-time Thai classes is that it is a great place to meet other like-minded individuals who are just as keen about the language and culture. Classes held are immersive and interactive, enabling students to speak Thai to one another.


The advice from other students and sharing resources will help to ease your learning journey. Additionally, some students find that they are more committed to learning a language in a group setting as compared to a private tutor!

Entry Requirements

There are no minimum requirements for Singaporeans and Singapore Permanent Residents (PRs). Foreigners would first be required to go through an interview, to assess their suitability for this course.

Corporate Language Training

With globalisation bringing people from various parts of the world together, it is crucial for businesses to adapt and be prepared for new opportunities that may come with this change in environment. Customers coming from different parts of the world may not always understand English, which may result in a language barrier between your business and your potential partners or clients.

Thai corporate language training provides numerous advantages for businesses, especially for businesses who deal with Thai speaking customers or have Thai speaking counterparts. Through our language training, we provide enterprises with the opportunity to improve their communication skills and build a better connection with their Thai speaking customers.

This course is designed to suit your business’ varying needs, in which we will tailor any language courses to suit your business requirements. Click here to enquire.

Thai Proficiency Test

We offer preparatory courses for Thai language exams at the GCE O-Level and universities in Thailand.

As Thai is the language of instruction and examination, meeting minimum course requirements does not guarantee admission. Universities in Thailand typically require a successfully completed language proficiency test. Click here to enquire.

Syllabus

With the use of phonetic exercises, students will learn proper pronunciation of the Thai language, as well as, speaking in the correct Thai accent. Our aim is to develop students’ conversational skills and appreciation for Thai. Students will be able to seamlessly converse by delivering simple sentences and honing a vocabulary of at least 400 words. Hence, at the end of the course, students will be able to construct basic sentences with proper grammatical structure through the correct use of verbs.
