Thai in Primary
At SIH it is very important that students learn the Thai language. Despite being an International school whose medium of learning is English it is vital that students study Thai language and culture throughout their school years. The Thai curriculum is divided into four main strands: Reading, Writing, Speaking & Listening. At SIH we offer two different levels for Thai classes.
Thai First Language
We offer Thai First Language lessons to pupils with spoken Thai at mother tongue level.
Thai Foreign Language
We also offer Thai as a Foreign Language lessons to pupils who do not speak Thai at mother tongue level.
