Course Duration
It’s a self study course so there is no set duration.

Every learner is different and there is no ‘one size fits all’ method to learn any language. Therefore, there is no set duration to learn my courses. Learn for as long as you need at a pace to suit you.

 

How does it take to complete the course when learning with a teacher?

The average learner will complete the Short Thai Course in around 20 hours private tuition. This may be more or less depending on your starting skills, how you learn a language and how much time you practise.

 

  • Lifetime access to the course materials
  • Come with a service to find a teacher for you to learn with
  • 350 baht for online teacher and teachers in Thailand
  • Other teacher locations are subject to country rate
  • Only pay for the time you learn so you don’t lose out when you want to stop learning
  • Start > Stop > Start Anytime
  • Change Teacher/Location Anytime. *On a fair use service. See Change Teacher Policy
Lesson Plan

Learning with a teacher so you need a lesson plan:

 

  • Each chapter may be taught in 1 – 2 hours or even more depending on each individual learner
  • We advise learners to attend 1-2 hour lesson one or two lessons per week
  • Try to leave 2 or 3 days between lessons to give yourself time to practise and consolidate new skills
  • Practise after your lessons with the self study materials; Study Sheets, Exercise/Homework sheets, Audio, Video, Online Quizzes. It is the key to progressing. A teacher can teach you how to speak Thai but a teacher can’t help you to remember everything.
  • Lessons are flexible, your teacher will adapt the materials to suit you
  • Not everything can be put in a book, if you have a special request on certain subject you can request the teacher to help you on those subjects.
Free Trial Lesson!
Learn by Yourself

If you are not sure about purchasing the course, you can Book a One Hour Free Trial Lesson with Kruu Jiab. I will introduce you to my courses and show how you can get the best out of the learning materials.

Learn with a Teacher

As explained, I am here to help my students (course purchased clients). You can request me to find an online or local teacher, if there is any local teacher in your area. For certainty and security, the teacher and the student prefer to meet before commencing paid lessons therefore Thai Style teachers provide a one hour ‘online or face to face’ free trial lesson to Thai Style students, meet & greet, explaining about the materials, discussing about current skills, learning aims, lesson plan and work out the logistics and payment method of the lessons.

In the case that you request the teacher to travel to meet you at your home, office or any place that they have to travel for a free trial lesson, I suggest you pay for the teacher’s travel costs for the trial lesson. They provide up to one hour meet & greet, introduction for free, so covering travel costs is only fair. 

If you are not sure about purchasing the course before meeting your Thai Style teacher, you can Book a One hour Free Trial Lesson with Your Teacher. This one hour free trial lesson will be on online platform via Thai Style Skype Account, Zoom Account or Microsoft Teams Account.

Note: If after a trial lesson you feel your allocated teacher is not right for you, you can provide me with feedback and request a new teacher for another trial lesson (subject to availability).

 

  • Meet your teacher
  • Introduction to learning
  • Discuss lesson logistics 
  • Get off to the best start!
Thai Script Only Edition

Two Versions

With & Without Phonetic/Transliteration Letters

For beginners with an aim to learn Thai script, but reply on phonetic/transliteration at the start of your learning experience, having access to both versions of the course will help you progress from phonetic/transliteration as a beginner to using Thai script only in the future.

When you are able to read Thai, phonetic/transliteration can be very distracting. So two versions of the course materials are important to help you progress at a pace and time to suit you.

Thai Teacher Map

My system is indifferent to other schools. At Thai Style, I, as a linguist, have created learning materials and designed the courses for learners and I have trained the teachers to use my courses to teach. I only take the course fees in order to keep running my business and helping people to learn Thai effectively. I do not take commissions from the teacher tuition fees. The teachers’ valuable time teaching you is for them to earn money. I have carefully selected who can join my team of freelance teachers. They must at least hold a bachelor degree either in teaching, languages or related fields, have good language skills and have experience in teaching languages as well as good communication and interaction skill, reliable, punctual and friendly. Please note, I do not provide free service to find a teacher for people who do not wish to purchase my course.

After purchasing my course, you pay the tuition fee to your allocated Thai Style freelance teacher directly. This provides you with extremely flexible and affordable lessons…

If you request a teacher to travel to teach you,

 

you pay for the traveling expenses (time and cost).

 

A reasonable travel expense will be charge by your teacher to travel to your location. You can negotiate a reasonable travel cost directly with your allocated teacher after registration.

The cost for a teacher to travel to your location will depend on many factors, for example; distance, mode of transport, frequency of classes, duration of classes, peak travel times, etc. All these factors need to be taken into account in order to provide a reasonable travel cost for you and your teacher. As there are so many factors to consider, and every class is unique, we cannot quote this expense in advance. 

The average cost for travel during rush hour in Bangkok is between 50 – 200 THB per trip. In London, it is reasonable for teachers to charge £5-20 due to the higher cost of public transport. All locations and teachers can vary in cost.

You can Book a One Hour Online Free Trial Lesson to meet with the teacher to discuss the logistics before purchasing the course and commencing paid lessons.

 

My system provides affordable lessons and flexibility.
