Primary Instructor:

This course aims to further develop students' knowledge of Thai language and culture through four main skills: listening, speaking, reading, and writing. Emphasis is placed on dialogues and the reading and writing of authentic materials; reading and writing Thai script will also be further developed during this course. By the end of the course, students will be able to communicate in short paragraphs and dialogues with native speakers about family life and life outside the home.

By the end of this course, students will be able to use and produce advanced-beginner vocabulary and grammar structures in appropriate contexts. This includes reading authentic materials, constructing sentences and short paragraphs in Thai script about relevant topics, speaking naturally using diverse vocabulary to give clear information, and comprehending main ideas and conclusions of both native-speaker and student writing and speaking. Topics such as describing locations of things and people; describing weather and seasons; talking about family and occupations; ordering food and drink will be discussed. Students will also learn more about various aspects of Thai culture and life in Thailand.

Course Requirements:

Because mastery of the Thai language depends on practice, 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.
