Sawadee! To stay and live in the Land of Smiles, communication in the native language is invaluable.

You will be highly respected and remembered.
Start with the absolute basics
Our Thai Language Course starts with the very basics of spoken Thai. We don’t bore you with grammar and history. Instead, we focus on teaching you how to master the tones, the key to talking and understanding speech. This is often very subtle and difficult if your native language is not tonal. It so much more efficient for a teacher to correct you until you get it right.
We of course quickly assess you, if you already have a good grasp of basic or intermediate skills, we can fit you into a higher level class. We will not hold you back
Really useful key phrases
We teach important key phrases that you can use in your everyday life. From hailing a tuk-tuk or taxi, bargaining for prices at the local market, to ordering delicious Thai food and more.
Our course covers a range of different topics that include the Thai alphabet, basic reading and writing, numbers and counting, timeframes, Thai culture, places and people, to name but a few. Our teachers use a very practical approach in teaching, and focus on correct pronunciation, so that you get your Thai accent just right. A typical 2-hour class is normally divided into two sessions: Thai for speaking and Thai for reading. In both sessions you will get practical exercises to do under the guidance of your teacher and a lot of opportunity to practise speaking with fellow students.
Once you have mastered the basics, you will move on to more advanced topics. Our classes are small and intimate, which ensures that you get alot of individual attention from our teacher, who will keep you interested and engaged.
