In depth: Our Thai Courses for Business in Preston

Thai Teaching Approach & Experience

Private individuals and professionals in companies all over the UK have profited from undertaking a Thai Language Course with SIMON & SIMON. Averaging 15 years of experience, our native Thai speaking qualified teachers construct your course so that your individual requirements are met, no matter what your level of experience. Our Thai teachers receive excellent feedback from our clients. A profile, containing information about the Thai teacher’s background and experience, is sent to each student before the Thai lessons start.

Modern language teaching is now approached much differently to how you might remember learning languages in school. The experience is now much more fun and rewarding. The Communicative Approach, where your Thai teacher will conduct your lessons almost entirely in Thai means that progress is made from your very first lesson. Soon, you will have such confidence that using Thai in a social or business setting will be no problem.

1:1 and Group Thai Courses in Preston

Our Thai courses are usually offered by our clients as 1:1 training for their employees. Group sessions, however, are also available and can be excellent value for money. Planning is required so that participants all meet at the same time each week, and we recommend that numbers are kept to 6 or less. 1:1 Thai lessons at Preston mean that you will have your individual needs, weaknesses and strengths catered for, so that your progress is quicker.

Thai Course Management

A multi-lingual Account Manager with extensive experience is responsible for each SIMON & SIMON Thai language course. A profile on your trainer, Course Plan and course materials will be sent to you when you start your Thai course. After every 40 hours of training you will receive a Progress Report. We will also send you Breaking the Language Barrier, our quarterly newsletter, which contains a wonderful prize draw and valuable language learning resource weblinks.

Thai Course Locations & Schedules

SIMON & SIMON has arranged Thai language courses for clients in numerous locations, and with our global network of language trainers we can organise a Thai language course for you wherever you are – in almost any major city in the UK, Europe and beyond. The vast majority of our Thai lessons take place at our clients’ offices, removing the need for you to travel, but Thai lessons can take place in your home if that is more convenient. We can also arrange full-time residential Thai language courses for you – just contact our office for information on available destinations.

Preston Thai Course Schedules

The Thai language courses in Preston that we run go on through the year. Each week, most of our students will attend at least one of our 90-minute lessons, but many will do more. We can also arrange Weekend Courses for you. Thai courses run from Monday to Friday, any time from 8am to 6pm. Intensive Thai language courses can be arranged in residential centres abroad or in the UK, or on clients’ premises for 30 hours per week, 6 hours a day Monday to Friday.

Thai Course Content

Before you start your Thai language course we will assess your level of Thai and speak to you about your aims so that your Thai language course can be customised for you. You may have never been exposed to Thai before and wish to develop basic survival skills, or you may have some experience and wish to be able to speak more fluently in Thai when discussing business. You may want to further your ability to use Thai in negotiations and meetings or better your comprehension and pronunciation abilities. Whatever goals you may have, our experienced Thai language trainers will tailor your Thai course so that your goals can be quickly met.

Thai Language Examination Courses

We are happy to help in your preparation for any Thai examinations. Our students have a 95% pass rate and we think that their success shows the value of our policy of working with above-average experienced Thai teachers in Preston. Issuing of results certificates, registration for Thai examinations and administration of such exams is also provided by SIMON & SIMON.

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 Preston

Preston is the administrative centre of Lancashire, England, located on the north bank of the River Ribble. It is an urban settlement and unparished area that, when combined with its surrounding suburban and rural hinterland, forms part of the City of Preston local government district of Lancashire, which obtained city status in 2002, becoming England’s 50th city in the 50th year of Queen Elizabeth II’s reign. The settlement, or unparished area, of Preston has a population of 114,300, and the whole City of Preston district has a population of 132,000. Preston and its surroundings have provided evidence of ancient Roman activity in the area, largely in the form of a Roman road which led to a camp at Walton-le-Dale. The Saxons established Preston; the name Preston is derived from Old English words meaning “Priest settlement” and in the Domesday Book appears as “Prestune”. During the Middle Ages, Preston formed a parish and township in the hundred of Amounderness and was granted a Guild Merchant charter in 1179, giving it the status of a market town. Textiles have been produced in Preston since the middle of the 13th century, when locally produced wool was woven in people’s houses. Flemish weavers who settled in the area during the 14th century helped to develop the industry. Sir Richard Arkwright, inventor of the spinning frame, was a weaver born in Preston.

Assess Your Thai Level

The table below is based on recognised language levels used by various academic institutions across the European Union. A highly motivated student attending weekly sessions with their Thai language trainer in Preston can expect to move from one level to another after 50 hours providing they also commit to a similar number of hours of self-study.

Of course, some people find learning languages easier than others, and some students will have more opportunities to practise Thai in the course of their work and leisure, so these factors also need to be considered when trying to assess how long it will take to move from one level to another.
