This is the first of the two-term sequence of courses in which students will achieve control of the sound system (Thai has five tones), basic sentence pattern, aural comprehension, and basic daily conversation. Students will be exposed to the authentic character of the language from the first day of class. Not only will students be able to speak the beautiful language, but also will be able to read and write the beautiful and unique script. Daily written assignments will be given to reinforce what was covered in class that day. By the end of the first term, students will be able to read, converse, and write about selective topics. Upon successful completion of the second term, students will be able to conduct conversations dealing with several survival concerns — ordering food, shopping, visiting the post office, going to the doctor, banking, etc. Many facets of Thai cultures will also be part of the lessons. Grading will be based upon class attendance and participation, written homework, weekly quizzes, and a final exam.
