how it works

it’s pretty simple, really

No rocket science involved. Learning Thai online is as easy as 1, 2, 3! Three simple steps and you are ready to learn Thai online. No software to install, just a video call using Google Hangouts or Skype. So grab a pad and pen then get comfortable!

1

get set up

You probably already have either Skype or Google Hangouts installed. If not, just search for the app and get the free download.

If you’re on an Android device, you’re already set!

2

book a class

Book a free trial or schedule a class.

We’ll send you an email confirming the time and date and attach the study materials for you to print out or open on your screen.

3

get ready!

Make sure you’re available at the agreed time and wait for your teacher to call. Simply answer the call and your first lesson begins.

Enjoy your Thai class!

Just like a regular classroom

Your Thai teacher will call you from a private classroom dedicated to teaching online. Our school has small designated rooms for privacy and to optimise the sound quality over the video call. We use laptops running Linux, but you can use anything from a Mac to a PC, or an iPad to an Android tablet. Any device that lets us call you is fine – nothing else is required. We recommend printing out the study materials we send you, but you may just want to open them on your screen. It’s also worth having pen and paper handy to take notes just as you would in any other classroom.
