After intensive 2-week Thai language lessons and cross-cultural training, participants have an opportunity to pivot their knowledge to interactive activities with local host families and the community they live with.
Although Thai language lessons are shortened to 3 hours daily focusing on the theme of “feeling” and “work-related” terms, participants will spend half of the day in community development with local leaders and under the guidance of RAW coaches. Participants return to homestay with their adopted Thai families at the end of the day.
Participants will also have a chance to work in team drafting a thank-you speech in Thai. The group representative will present it at the dinner party the night before departing the village.
Participants will move out of the homestay to a hotel accommodation on 20 December 2019, and continue with their classes until 25 December 2019. Through an one-on-one interview, participants and trainers will work together on a specific development subject serving learners’ best interest. The trainers will prepare language lessons tailored to the needs, and facilitate them during the wrap-up phase in Bangkok.
