Thai (Course Levels & Overview)


About this course

Thai is spoken by people in the North and South Eastern parts of Asia. It is a monosyllabic language, where a few words are stringed to form a sentence.

At Oxford Language Academy, we offer a variety of Thai courses that are sure to meet your requirements in learning Thai. 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.



English is used as the medium of instruction. Using the romanised Thai alphabet, our conversational courses cover 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.

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.



The Thai Reading & Writing component of our classes is separated from the conversational portion, providing students with a more holistic curriculum to learning the language. However, students looking to join our Thai Reading & Writing classes need to have some basic knowledge of spoken Thai.

The main objective of this course is to equip students with the necessary skills to read and write at a comfortable level for general life in Thailand. By first introducing the Thai alphabet and vowels, our teachers are focused on developing our students’ reading and writing skills. Once students have recognised the Thai alphabet and vowels, they will then learn about the theory of reading and writing Thai.

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!

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.

We tailor our programs to provide businesses with practical and useful resources to make the learning more impactful and applicable to your business.

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.


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. In the Thai Reading & Writing course, students will learn to read and write Thai characters and short essays. In addition, students will also be exposed to new vocabulary and practice sentence structuring, where they will gain a better understanding of integrating these words into sentences. Hence, at the end of the course, students will have the ability to read and write simple words and sentences and read simple Thai passages.
