For Conversation Class, the instructor first presents the language in class. It is then practiced by the students in controlled question and answer sessions. Finally, the students perform the new language in the form of interactive situations (e.g. skits and role-plays) which ensures that the classes are both realistic and relevant to daily life. We always encourage our students not to be afraid of making mistakes when they have a conversation with Thai people.

The Instructor acts firstly as a presenter of the language, and later as a facilitator and avoids lecturing in class. Correction, followed by reinforcement, is also characteristic in the presentation stage of the lessons. Students will receive the correct guidance to ensure that their needs are met.

Mistakes are just stepping stones to learning! So, don’t hesitate to talk to Thai people to improve your Thai language skills. However, we as Thai language teachers would like to help you to speak Thai correctly.
