   Lonely Planet Thailand Travel/Survival Kit 10/92:

   "Chulalongkorn U. in Bangkok, the most prestigious university in
   Thailand, offers an intensive Thai studies course called
   'Perspectives on Thailand'. The four-week program includes classes
   in Thai language, culture, history, politics and economics. Classes
   meet six hours a day, six days a week and are offered twice a year:
   January and July. Sutdents who have taken the course say they have
   found the quality of instructioin excellend. Tuition is US
   $1000..."

   Have any readers tried this? Any advice on learning Thai in
   Thailand?

   Thanks!

   [Chiangmai University] has at least two collaborated programs with
   the US institutions: one is U of Wisconsin via College Year in
   Thailand Program (CYIT), and, the St.Olaf College, Minnesota. The
   first one recruits students from any college in the US. The
   students will stay one year in Chiangmai studying Thai language,
   history, culture and people. They get some academic credits from
   that. The latter program takes only on semester. It is designed
   specially for the St.Olaf College students.

   In both program, [Chiangmai] faculty members have help them learn
   Thai via their facilities at the Humanities Faculty there. I don't
   have any independent source of evaluation to rate them.

   Faculty of Education, Division of Teaching Thai, had(s?) provided
   cooperation to a Korean university (....some kind of U of Foreign
   Affairs) whose Thai-studies students come to stay in Chiangmai for
   a semester and learn solely Thai language.

   As far as other provincial universities are concerned, my adviser
   was in the Thai language program at Kon Kaen University. I don't
   know much about it. My advisor said it was good.

   As for Chiangmai, would you want to contact a friend of mine, Khun
   Steve? He is Ajaan Sompong Witayasakpan, of Thai Department there
   at [Chiangmai U]. I have heard he helps carry out Thai language
   programs there. He was also at the East-West Center of U of Hawaii
   for some time. His email adress is: sompong@cmu.chiangmai.ac.th .
   In contacting with him tell him also that it's my suggestion. I
   believe he should provide you the needed information.
