Thai Courses for Business in Reading

Professionals and non-professionals alike from all across the country have seen great benefits from a SIMON & SIMON Thai Language Course. SIMON & SIMON’s team of qualified Thai teachers are made up of native speakers who average 15 years of experience.

The Communicative Approach

Our teachers will make sure that your Thai Course in Reading is tailored to your specific needs so that you will benefit regardless of your language proficiency. We regularly receive positive feedback regarding our language trainers’ performance, and what’s more before starting your course you will be sent a profile on your specific trainer, detailing their previous experience and background.

If the only experience you have of studying a language is what you can remember from school, then you are in for a treat. Modern Language training has been revolutionised over recent years, and the experience is now considered much more fun and rewarding. Your Language Teacher will conduct your Thai Course in Reading almost entirely in Thai, a modern teaching method known as the Communicative Approach, where progress can be made right from your very first session.

In depth: Our Thai Courses for Business in Reading

1:1 and Group Thai Courses in Reading

Thai language courses by SIMON & SIMON have been honed down to give you the greatest progress and value for money.

While we offer learning options on both a 1:1 and group basis, we find that most of our learners benefit most from 1 to 1 language training courses.

Group training offers great value for money, but the commitment and organisation to ensure the participants all show up at the same time every week is a trade-off. We recommend no more than 6 participants in a group otherwise the quality of the learning will drop dramatically for all learners.

Reading Course Management

Every SIMON & SIMON language course is overseen by one of our highly experienced Account Managers, all of whom are multi-lingual.

At the start of your Thai language course we will send you a profile on your trainer, followed by a Course Plan and relevant course materials, and then a Progress Report after every 40 hours of training. You will also receive a copy of our quarterly newsletter, Breaking the Language Barrier, featuring a superb prize draw and invaluable weblinks to language learning sources.

Thai Course Locations & Schedules

SIMON & SIMON’s network is completely international, with a strong presence across the UK. Thai language courses have been arranged with our experienced language teachers in almost any major city around the world. Wherever you are located, our teachers can either meet you in your office, at one of our locations, in the comfort of your home or anywhere you like by running it through Skype!

Reading Thai Course Schedules

We run our language courses all year long and can happen anytime between 8am – 6pm Monday to Friday. Weekend courses may also be negotiated with your teacher.

Sessions are typically 90 minutes long with at least one session per week. This can be increased or reduced according to your personal schedule.

And if you have an urgency to learn Thai, you can take part in an intensive Thai language course which consists of 6 hours every day Monday – Friday giving you 30 hours per week.

Thai Course Content

We do not run standardised Thai language courses. Instead, one of our multi-lingual Account Managers will speak to you directly and tailor the course to your particular objectives. Your teacher then guides you through your learning at the pace and in the direction that you yourself help to set.

This means that whether you’re an absolute beginning looking to “just survive” in Thailand, or if you are a professional who wishes to understand the nuances of the language in order to perform better in a law, banking, finance, insurance, sales, travel, marketing or administration context, you will be able to find what you need with SIMON & SIMON’s Thai language courses.

We can also help you with pronunciation, translations, presentation skills and cultural training to help you better participate in the entirety of Thai culture.

Importantly, if you are looking to sit any kind of Thai language examinations, we can assist in your preparations and guide you through the necessary revision. We pride ourselves on achieving a 95% pass rate – which really comes down to the personal 1 to 1 language training from highly experiences Thai language teachers.

We will also assist in the registration and administration of these exams and can also handle the issuing of result certificates.

Thai Language Examination Courses

We can also help prepare you for Thai examinations of a business or general nature. We are proud to say our students have a 95% pass rate in language examinations, and their success further underlines the value we place on working with Thai teachers with above average experience.

As part of our service, SIMON & SIMON will also organise the registration and administration of Thai examinations and the issuing of result certificates.

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 Reading

Reading is a large town and unitary authority area in England, located at the confluence of the River Thames and River Kennet, and on both the Great Western Main Line railway and the M4 motorway, some 40 miles (64 km) west of London. For ceremonial purposes it is in the Royal County of Berkshire and has served as the county town since 1867. Reading was an important national centre in the medieval period, as the site of an important monastery with strong royal connections. Today it remains a commercial centre, with links to information technology and insurance. Reading also hosts two universities, a large student population, and is home to one of England’s biggest music festivals. The settlement was founded at the confluence of the River Thames and River Kennet in the 8th century as Readingum. The name probably comes from the Readingas, an Anglo-Saxon tribe whose name means “Reada’s People” in Old English, or (less probably) the Celtic Rhydd-Inge, “Ford over the River”. The name of the settlement was derived from an earlier folk, or tribal, name. Anglo-Saxon names ending in -ingas originally referred not to a place but to a people, in this case specifically the descendants or followers of a man named Reada, literally “The Red One.”

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 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.
