Outline and Purpose of the Course This Thai II (Basic Course) directly follows Thai I (Basic Course) given in the first semester. Therefore, students are expected to improve their speaking and listening skills, based on what they have learned earlier.
Course Goals By the end of the second semester, students should be able to understand the Thai language in terms of its basic pronunciation, tones, vocabulary (approximately 200 words) and grammatical points (approximately 38 points). They are expected to feel more confident in their daily communication similar to those they may encounter in Thailand.
Schedule and Contents Instructions include the teacher’s lecture, oral practices, teacher-student interactions, and brief conversations in Thai, etc.

Evaluation Methods and Policy Students will be assessed based on quizzes in class (the possible sum of points are around 500 points) and the term examination (100 points). All grades are based on a 100 point scale. All points are cumulative. Students are expected to come to class well prepared, including the review of the lessons they have already learned. The audio CD attached to the textbook will be helpful to develop their listening and speaking skills.
Course Requirements Students are expected to have taken the Thai I (Basic Course) in the first semester. In order to make this Thai II course effective, students should attend the class with no absences, no deters, and make a habit of listening to the CD regularly.
Study outside of Class (preparation and review) If some students’ Thai proficiency is different from the target level of this course, they could come and tell the teacher to that effect, during their self-introduction on the first day of the course. The teacher might be able to help them cope with the problem as much as possible.
