Study the Thai language while you explore Thailand, the only southeast Asian country never to be colonized by European powers and now a center for manufacturing, agriculture, and tourism. Practice your Thai language skills with your host family and negotiate daily life in Chiang Mai, the urban northern hub of Thailand.
Take one language course in three weeks and earn 4 undergraduate credits. Beginning through intermediate levels are available. All classes are held at a local study center and are taught by experienced instructors who are native speakers. Small class sizes with other program participants allow students many opportunities to practice their language skills and receive feedback from the instructor.
Homestays are an integral component of the learning experience. You will live and share most meals with a family in order to gain deeper cultural insight into life in Thailand.
Excursions to locations of cultural interest in and around Chiang Mai are included in the program fee.
