The PLC Thai Culture Module consists of a series of self-contained presentations that can either be studied in sequence, or integrated into a language course at regular intervals. Each presentation is designed to give an overview of different cultural aspects for foreigners who have an interest in learning about Thai culture generally, or are in Thailand for work purposes or long-term settlement.
PLC School understands that many foreign visitors and residents would like to learn about modern culture and today's society - not just traditions, customs, religion, and history. Therefore, this module also includes references to daily life and modern media (TV, newspapers etc.). Other topics include transport and travel, life in cities and towns, life in rural areas, places to visit, social interaction, food, traditions, shopping, economy and money, and much more.
- A complete series of visual presentations
- Video and audio

This culture module is also useful if you are studying Thai language. You can add the Thai Culture module to your language studies to give a full Thai Language and Culture course. This gives a 'real-world' context for your studies with extra vocabulary and further examples of social language and etiquette.
