Expat Survival Package – Learn Thai in Bangkok

Sometimes being in Thailand can leave you feeling as if you are an alien from another world. The food, culture, language …strange goings on – it can make you feel on the outside of everything. Even basic tasks like paying bills, organizing mobile phone contracts, buying food or getting directions can become a major frustrating task. This is not helped by every other Thai person you walk pass calling out ‘farang, farang’.

Take off the mask and interact!!!

We aim to make Thailand more accessible to you, through the development of good Thai language skills. We want you to break down barriers, interact and be a part of what is going on around you.

How do we do this!?
We do this by delivering to you our interactive survival program, using a system we call Active Learning focusing on everyday events. The program combines interactive classroom learning with learning outside the school we call, ‘Walk About’ – situational learning.

There are two streams available:

Thai Language Speaking only
Thai Language with Speaking and Thai Script only

Here are the highlights of the courses:

The course will cover this and more…

…And before you think about just studying Thai language skills and not Thai script as this looks difficult …please remember if you really want to get along here it helps to understand a little Thai script. Let me give you an example. I have a friend who speaks good clear Thai far better than my own but he has no knowledge of Thai script. One day he was searching for a shop to repair his mobile phone but he was unable to locate the shop. He was sent up and down the street several times by the Thai’s he asked. He could not understand it. After a frustrating hour or so he asked another Thai who looked at him quizzically and pointed at the shop next to him. The name of the shop was written in Thai but he could not read the script!

There are no surprises however, if you have no experience of Thai language and wish to learn Thai Script as a well Speaking (2nd Stream) this is possible but your progress will be slower than those that have some knowledge of Thai already.
