Thai. Learn Thai with us.

Thai is a beautiful language that, apart from being the official language of Thailand, is also used in various other South East Asian countries. Thailand is a very popular tourist destination and is marked by a unique Asian culture. The Thai culture is also highly integrated within our community and this program will enhance your appreciation and understanding of the many Thai foods and festivities.

Our beginners Thai classes are suitable for people who have no prior knowledge of the Thai language, while subsequent courses progressively increase the complexity of language concepts. If you want to learn to speak Thai, our Thai courses are ideal for adult learners to enjoy a practical and social experience while you learn Thai language and culture. Learn Thai the smart way with Thai courses at CCE, the University of Sydney.
