About Thai Language, Culture and History Department

Welcome to the Thai Language Department.  At ACIS we make learning Thai easy and fun for all our staff, students, and parents.  In accordance with the Thailand Education Ministry, students receive instruction in all 4 areas:  listening, speaking, reading, and writing.


We also love to teach Thai culture, values, and lifestyle to our students.  We encourage them to take pride in their history but focus on the importance of proper manners and living in a culturally diverse environment. Most importantly, we want all our students to become respectful global citizens in the 21st century.
