In depth: Our Thai Courses for Business in Greater Manchester

Thai Teaching Approach & Experience

Both professionals and non-professionals alike have seen great benefits from a SIMON & SIMON Thai Language Course. SIMON & SIMON’s team of qualified Thai teachers is made up of native speakers who average 15 years of experience. These teachers will make sure that a course is tailored for your specific needs so that you will benefit regardless of your language proficiency. Feedback from clients on our Thai tutors is consistently highly positive. Our students are sent a profile containing information on their specific teacher’s experience and background before the start of their Thai Lessons.

If the only experience you have of studying a language is from your time in school, you may not know that there has been a revolution in the teaching of modern languages so that it is both more fun and more worthwhile. Your Thai teacher in Greater Manchester will be using the Communicative Approach, where your lessons will, with few exceptions, be conducted in Thai. You will see your progress from that very first lesson and will soon be confident enough to conduct business or talk socially in Thai.

1:1 and Group Thai Courses in Greater Manchester

Our Thai language courses are available on both a 1:1 and group basis, but the majority of our clients offer 1:1 Thai training to their employees. However, with careful planning, group training can offer great value for money, provided there is a real commitment from the participants to get together at the same time every week. We strongly recommend you keep group numbers to 6 or less for these types of courses to be successful. Those learning Thai in Greater Manchester on a 1:1 basis will naturally make much faster progress, as the course will be designed around their individual needs and focus on their particular strengths and weaknesses.

Thai Course Management

Every SIMON & SIMON Thai language course has a highly experienced, multi-lingual Account Manager who oversees it. When your Thai course starts you will be sent a profile on your trainer, materials for your course and a Course Plan as well as a Progress Report for every 40 hours of training. Breaking the Language Barrier, our quarterly newsletter that you will also receive, contains a prize draw as well as weblinks to a number of learning resources.

Thai Course Locations & Schedules

We have a global network of language trainers so our Thai language courses can be arranged for almost any major European city, or even further abroad. SIMON & SIMON have run Thai language courses for clients in many diverse locations. Thai language courses can be run in your home for your convenience, but many of our clients prefer to run them in their offices so as to minimise travel. For a list of the locations of the full-time residential Thai language courses that we offer, contact our office.

Greater Manchester Thai Course Schedules

Our Thai language courses in Greater Manchester go on all year. Some of our students attend more than one 90-minute weekly session if work circumstances allow, and most will attend at least one per week. Weekend Courses in Thai can be arranged on request. Our Thai courses are available 12 hours a day, from 8am to 8pm Monday through Friday. 30 hour per week intensive Thai courses can be held on clients’ premises or in residential centres in the UK or abroad. These courses take 6 hours per day, Monday through Friday.

Thai Course Content

We will tailor your Thai language course for your specific aims and level of knowledge. Before you start your Thai language course we will assess your goals and level of Thai experience. Your desire to learn Thai may be simply to develop basic skills, or you may have some level of proficiency and wish to increase your ability to use Thai to discuss business. You may want to develop your language skills so that you can use Thai in negotiations and meetings or improve your pronunciation and telephone skills. No matter what goals you have, you can be confident of our Thai trainers experience and that your Thai language course is tailored to your needs and your goals will be quickly met.

Thai Language Examination Courses

Our students’ pass rate for Thai examinations is at 95%, and we are happy to help with the preparations for any such examination. Our high pass rate shows the value of working with Thai teachers in Greater Manchester who have a higher level of experience than average. SIMON & SIMON also arrange registration for Thai examinations as well as administering the examination and issuing the results.

About Thai

Thai is the national and official language of Thailand and the native language of the Thai people, Thailand’s dominant ethnic group. Thai is a member of the Tai group of the Tai-Kadai language family. Historical linguists have been unable to definitively link the Tai-Kadai languages to any other language family. Some words in Thai are borrowed from Pali, Sanskrit and Old Khmer. It is a tonal and analytic language. Thai also has a complex orthography and relational markers. Thai is mutually intelligible with Lao, whereas the Isaan dialect is almost the same as Lao.

About Greater Manchester

Greater Manchester is a metropolitan county in North West England, with a population of 2.6 million. It encompasses one of the largest metropolitan areas in the United Kingdom and comprises ten metropolitan boroughs: Bolton, Bury, Oldham, Rochdale, Stockport, Tameside, Trafford, Wigan, and the cities of Manchester and Salford. Greater Manchester was created on 1 April 1974 as a result of the Local Government Act 1972.

Greater Manchester spans 496 square miles (1,285 km2). It is landlocked and borders Cheshire (to the south-west and south), Derbyshire (to the south-east), West Yorkshire (to the north-east), Lancashire (to the north) and Merseyside (to the west). There is a mix of high density urban areas, suburbs, semi-rural and rural locations in Greater Manchester, but overwhelmingly the land use is urban. It has a focused central business district, formed by Manchester city centre and the adjoining parts of Salford and Trafford, but Greater Manchester is also a polycentric county with ten metropolitan districts, each of which has at least one major town centre and outlying suburbs.

The Greater Manchester Urban Area is the third most populous conurbation in the UK, and spans across most of the county’s territory. For the 12 years following 1974 the county had a two-tier system of local government; district councils shared power with the Greater Manchester County Council.
