Intensive Thai Language Courses
The Intensive Thai program offers two levels of Thai courses for beginners. The first level, comprised of 200 hours, emphasizes basic skills: listening, speaking, and grammar for reading and writing general texts. The second level, comprised of 100 hours, is for students who intend to take either undergraduate or graduate programs in Thai. Students will be tested periodically to monitor progress and will be required to pass an equivalency test.
Level I (200 hrs):
Stresses practical communication skills based on everyday activities while introducing students to the basic Thai writing system.

Students are expected to know at least 1,500 Thai words and be able to use a Thai/English dictionary.
Level II (100 hrs):
Students practice the four language skills at an advanced level. Instruction emphasizes advanced sentence structures and a vocabulary base of 3,000 Thai words is required.
