สวัสดีค่ะ : Sà-wàd~Dee Kâ : Hello, I’m Kruu Jiab, the author of the books and the creator of all materials for all of my courses. Let me help you to take your Thai to the next level.
Course Aims & Achievements
The Upper Intermediate Thai course aims to help you to practise reading and understand different types of speech with short stories. Practise to summarize the idea of a story as well as learning the syntax. Your teacher will correct your pronunciation during your lesson and would mostly speak Thai with you to practice conversation skills.
Prerequisites & Who is it For?
Suitable for students who can already speak, read and write Thai.
To ensure you are at the correct level to learn our Upper Intermediate Thai Course you must meet the following prerequisites.
- Speak everyday conversation
- Read basic Thai script
- Understand how to combine Thai consonants, vowels and final consonants to make a word
- Understand the written Thai tone modulation system
- Read and write a basic Thai sentence
- Aim to improve reading, writing and speaking
You will receive 13 stages of materials which are used as a guide; they consist of short stories, explanations, grammar and lots more to make sure you get the most out of your lessons with as little or as much structure as you require. As an upper-intermediate learner, there will be gaps in your knowledge. Therefore, if you would like to emphasise on learning a particular subject, you should work with your teacher to develop specific skills and provide your own supplemental learning materials. The Upper-Intermediate course we provide has been developed for many different types of learners and aims to provide a guide to develop fluency in speaking, listening, reading and writing. We provide materials to cover many aspects of learning Thai, however, there are many different paths to follow at this level. Therefore, the materials we provide may just be used as a reference and you may need to work with your teacher to learn materials to suit your individual learning style, aims and interests. You are therefore expected to do your own research, provide extra supplemental materials and self learning to compliment your tuition.
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

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).

- Introduction to learning
- Discuss lesson logistics

Tuition fees are paid directly to teachers in their local currency.
My system provides affordable lessons and flexibility.
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.
