Learning Thai with Cactus

Cactus group Thai language courses will help you learn through small group classes. Native-speaking, experienced and qualified Thai teachers use the communicative approach. Students will be focusing on developing speaking and listening Thai skills. Your writing and reading Thai skills will be stimulated as well.

You will engage in pair-work and group-work during the course. This will support you to maximise your opportunities to use Thai during class time.

Cactus also offers you the opportunity to keep up the momentum by progressing through the levels. Lessons are offered from Beginners (A1) through to Advanced (C1).

How to Learn Thai

If you are looking to learn Thai, Cactus is the place to start. With Cactus you can study face-to-face or online with the help of a native-speaking teacher.

There are many levels but if you have no knowledge you can join our beginners lessons. Teachers will be able to support you on your language journey.

The first step is to understand if you prefer to join an online group language class or prefer to attend a face-to-face course.

Thai Classes Levels

If you are not at beginner levels you can study Thai from elementary through to proficient. At lower level such as elementary Thai you will cover the basics and learn Thai grammar. A great option if you have basic knowledge.

At mid levels as intermediate and upper-intermediate Thai, you will gain a solid understanding. If you are looking to progress to a higher level it’s the perfect option. You must have completed A2 or B1 level (CEFR levels) to attend these levels.

At advanced and proficient Thai level you will be able to express yourself fluently. Enhance your Thai pronunciation and conversation skills. Your knowledge of the language will reach a new height.

You can take our level test and check the course content before taking a Thai class with Cactus.

Frequently asked questions

What will I learn?

Our Course Outlines give an overview of the content and learning framework of Cactus courses. Includes themes, grammar and vocabulary you can typically expect to cover. These are intended as a guide only. Language teachers may at times adapt the course content to suit the specific level, aims and interests of the class.

How do I know what level I am?

Are you unsure where to start or progress to? Then take our level test and read our level descriptions for guidance.

Do I receive a qualification or certificate?

At the end of your course you receive a certificate of participation. You will be able to be download it from your MyCactus account. This confirms the language and level of course you have taken. Our course levels are based on two internationally recognised systems. You will have a universally accepted reference for your studies. (Important: Please note that you must complete the end of course questionnaire sent to you to be able to get your certificate! You will receive the course questionnaire by e-mail at the end of your course.)

Do I need a course book?

You will need a course book to attend your course. Course books are not included in the course fees. We recommend that you buy your own course book separately before your course starts. We will let you know which course book you will require and advise where you can purchase this. Please note that a course book often covers more than one level. So if you progress to the next course, you may not necessarily need to buy a new book. Again, we will advise you of this at the time. The course book is chosen by our teachers and academic team. This is based on which book is most suitable for the level of the class whilst offering the most communicative approach.
