The integration of Thai language and culture is an important component of the K Chiang Mai program. To gain a deeper understanding of the culture and have stronger, more equal communication while in Thailand, students take immersive Thai language classes. By the end of the program, students are able to communicate in everyday settings with basic Thai. This can seem a little daunting as most students go into the program without knowing Thai, so on this page, I’ll document what the Thai learning process is like for me. I hope this will make it seem less abstract for students who are interested in the program in the future. I’ll be adding more posts to this page about once per week once I begin classes!
