For 2015 Thai class for Beginners commences on Sunday, 1st March 2015.
The class would be held every Sunday as follows:
Intermediate: 1pm to 2.30pm
Beginners: 2.30pm to 4pm
Venue: Multipurpose Hall of Wat Chetawan, Jalan Gasing, Petaling Jaya
There is a small fee to be used for photostat and donation for the temple for using its facilities (electric, air con, etc).


For those who are staying in Selangor and Kuala Lumpur area, you can learn Thai launguage from a very dedicated lay teacher called Peter. In the class you would be systematically guided to read and write the Thai alphabets.

The next batch of beginners if Thai language  class would be held at Wat Chetawan at Jalan Gasing Petaling Jaya on Sunday 2 March 2014 at 2.30pm.

For intermediate, it is at 1pm on 2 March 2014. Venue is at the multipurpose hall.

I have taken the Thai language class  few years back from Peter and I find it very beneficial. He had provided me a firm foundation to help me able to read the basic Thai. In Thai language,  various romanized words is being used and different teachers or authors would use different method of translating. It is quite hard to learn from books actually.

From the translation that Peter taught,  I stuck firmly to the conventions he had used and it had helped me to read signs and sentences.

You may read about my experience here.

For those who wished to learn, just show up at the multipurpose hall at 2.30pm. No prior registration is required.

Hope you would find the class beneficial. The fees are very minimal….I think about RM30 or slightly more but the money is used to photostat materials and as a donation to the temple for using their facilities.
