This course aims to provide deeper knowledge of Thai language and culture, focusing on developing students’ listening, speaking, reading, and writing skills. Emphasis is placed on developing a strong intermediate-level understanding of the language through longer dialogues and written paragraphs using Thai script. By the end of the course, students will be able to communicate in more complex paragraphs and dialogues with native speakers about living and working in Thailand.

By the end of this course, students will be able to speak and respond to a variety of topics and cultural issues using syntactically complex grammatical structures and intermediate vocabulary. Students will read and explain the main ideas and details in a variety of Thai texts, read and write short stories, create longer dialogues, communicate and react appropriately in various situations based on Thai culture. Topics to be addressed include describing appearance and personality, making an appointment, visiting a doctor, and learning about festivals. Students will also learn more about various aspects of Thai culture, and especially working and living in Thailand. The class will be delivered in Thai with minimal use of English which will provide an intensive focus on language practice.

Course Requirements:

Because mastery of the Thai language depends on practice of it, evaluation will be based on attendance, participation, and homework in which students will practice what we learn in class. There will also be unit quizzes, a midterm exam, and a final exam to check for understanding.
