Sunday Afternoon Thai Language Class
Introduction to Thai as a Second Language
This ten-week course running from 8 May to 24 June 2011
is aimed at UK-born Thai children who want to learn to read, write, undestand and
converse in Thai language. If you are an adult who wants to learn Thai, you may join
the course, but as children are our first priority, don't blame us if you are treated
like children! The course will be held at the Northwest Centre for Buddhist Meditation
in Stockport. The course will be held weekly, on Sunday afternoons (except the first
Sunday of the month) from 1.00 - 3.30p.m.
The language course will be taught by a team of experienced volunteer teachers who
are native speakers of the Thai language.
Who can benefit from the course?
- UK-born Thai children - aged 8-15 (who will emphasize
reading and writing).
- British adults - aged 16+ (who must learn all four
language skills) and
Expected Lesson Content
This is a short pilot course to guage response. In ten weeks the course will be able
to cover reading and writing of the Thai alphabet (consonants, vowels and numbers),
background on Thai-Buddhist etiquette and some basic conversation. If all goes well
and the class and teaching staff prove sustainable, a continuation of the course
from September onwards will start on the Primary 1 textbook for Thai language.
What does it cost?
Teaching is free, however it would be appreciated if you would make a minimum donation
of £40.00 per student/course the first time you attend the course as a contribution
towards upkeep and heating of the centre.
