Course Aims

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.


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 3 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.

Free Trial Class!

After registration, arrange a FREE TRIAL class with your allocated teacher 

A trial class is provided so you can meet your teacher, work out the logistics of your classes, and your teacher will introduce you to the materials. 

  • Meet your teacher
  • Discuss class logistics 
  • Get off to the best start!
  • Introduction to learning 
Note : If after a trial class you feel your allocated teacher is not right for you, you can provide us with feedback and request a new teacher for another trial class (subject to availability). 

Our system ensures you get off to the best start with the right teacher. 

We suggest you pay for the teachers travel costs for the trial class. They provide up to one hour meet & greet, introduction for free, so covering travel costs is only fair.

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 – 150 THB. In London, it is reasonable for teachers to charge £5-10 due to the higher cost of public transport. All locations and teachers can vary in cost.

After you register, if you are not satisfied with the travel expense you are quoted by your allocated teacher we can help to negotiate a reasonable expense for you or change your teacher. 

When you sign up to learn a Thai Style course you can download and print the learning materials by yourself via your Student Hub Page. If you want to save on printing costs you can purchase the workbooks (colour A4 size). Workbooks cost 600 THB each. There is 1 workbook for Short Thai course.
Postage – Workbooks are dispatched from our Bangkok office. EMS postage to addresses in Thailand is free. International postage outside Thailand will cost 1,200 THB per order.
