A U3A Tutor Joe Smith, who currently offers a class in Mandarin, is willing to teach interested members Beginner’s Thai.
Joe currently offers the class to Brisbane U3A members via Zoom and is willing to offer it to U3A Sunshine Coast members to help them became more proficient in the language and then join with the existing class. The class would have the flexibility of being offered live or via Zoom.
The course focuses on everyday spoken Thai. Compared to other Asian languages it is easier than Chinese because it has an alphabet and easier than Vietnamese because it only has five tones.
Thai and Chinese grammar are practically the same, so learning Thai will help if you want to learn Chinese later.
If you are interested in joining this class, please send your expression of interest to Wayne Curran, Tutor and Course Coordinator U3A email@example.com and either he or Joe Smith will be in contact.
