Sawasdee Pee Mai = Happy New Year 2021 สวัสดีปีใหม่ 2564
2020 has been a challenging year for everyone to say the least. It has been a pleasure to continue teaching my Thai language students in the New York City area. This year will be the 16th year of me teaching private Thai lessons.
If you wish to start a Thai lesson, please include the following information.
Your purpose in learning Thai: work, family, or personal development.
Time frame: travel plan in three months? crash course? a long term goal to reconnect with distant Thai relatives?
Your previous experience in learning a foreign language.
These questions should help you think about your decision to start a Thai lesson. Thai is not an easy language to learn, but the goal to master the Thai language is attainable. I just want to make sure that you are committed to it.
Aside from teaching Americans with Thai partners, I have been teaching many Thai-Americans over the years. Here is a review from my Thai heritage student, Anna.
“I had always wanted to take Thai to connect with my roots in Thailand but I kept putting it off because I thought my schedule couldn’t fit it. I finally decided to do some research and I found Titcha. To my delight I found she made learning Thai not only a convenient and smooth process but also a fun experience that I look forward to every week. Whenever I have a conflict and need to rearrange my week Titcha has always been understanding and flexible. I feel that I have made significant progress in a short span of time and it is all thanks to her.”
I did a project with Turnstile Tours, sponsored by Thai Select USA. If you want to check out a brief lesson on how to order food in Thai and how to make Som Tum (Papaya Salad) and Larb Ped (Duck salad), please check out this program. Also, if you live in the NYC area, Som Tum Der is my favorite Thai restaurant. Here is the LINK to the program.
