Thai 2 continues from Thai 1 by introducing students to further aspects of the Thai language, both spoken and written, and developing their cultural knowledge of Thailand's hierarchical and culturally diverse society. Students undertake introductory translation exercises and participate in extended group discussions

Learning Outcomes

Upon successful completion, students will have the knowledge and skills to:

  1. Recognise and use Thai phonemes, including tones, with improved accuracy as well as recognise some etiquette implications of such features of pronunciation as softening.
  2. Use an active vocabulary of about 2000 items, to allow more detailed interactions, expression of views and simple interviewing activities.
  3. Recognise and use longer sentence structures and passages, identify sentence boundaries in the absence of punctuation, and use appropriate particles.
  4. Communicate in speaking and writing to request information in day-to-day life, about Thai society, and from Thai people.
  5. Demonstrate a nuanced understanding of Thai customs relating to religion and other beliefs.

Other Information

On successful completion of this course, students will have the knowledge and skills to engage at an Introductory level of Thai.

 

Students with native speaker proficiency (may include cognate languages and dialects) must review the placement test site and contact the CAP Student Centre for appropriate enrolment advice. Students with previous “language experience or exposure” are required to take a language placement test to ensure enrolment at the most appropriate level.

 

Relevant past experience includes:

-      Previous study of the language (both formal and informal, for example but not limited to, at school, or, home, or through online activities, etc.)

-      Being exposed to the language in childhood via a family member or friend

-      Travel or living in a country where the language is spoken

-      The language being spoken in your home (even if you do not speak it yourself)

 

Students who are not sure if they need to take a placement test should seek advice from the course or language convenor. Students who intentionally misrepresent their language proficiency level may be investigated under the Academic Misconduct Rule 2015 as having failed to comply with assessment directions and having sought unfair advantage. This may results in a penalty such as reduced grades or failure of the course.


Students are not permitted to enrol in a language course below one that they have already successfully completed, except with permission of the language and/or course convenor.

----

As language courses are sequential, this may mean that students can only commence their language course in the following semester.

Indicative Assessment

  1. Oral tests during the semester (40) [LO 1,2,3,4,5]
  2. Written assignments (30) [LO 1,2,3,4,5]
  3. Written mid-semester and final exams (30) [LO 1,2,3,4,5]

The ANU uses Turnitin to enhance student citation and referencing techniques, and to assess assignment submissions as a component of the University's approach to managing Academic Integrity. While the use of Turnitin is not mandatory, the ANU highly recommends Turnitin is used by both teaching staff and students. For additional information regarding Turnitin please visit the ANU Online website.
