Free foreign-language courses begin Jan. 15


Registration for Pattaya’s next round of free foreign-language courses begins next month.

The city’s Non-Formal Education Office will run registration Jan. 15-17 at the Pattaya Education Department offices. Classes will be held starting in February from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Pattaya School No. 8.

Classes in English, Russian and Chinese are offered, with a cap of 50 students per course. Those who have taken the course previously are barred from re-enrolling. The courses are free, but require a Thai identification card. Orientation will be held Jan. 31 at 3 p.m. at Pattaya City Hall.

Each class runs 100 hours.  Students who attend at least 80 hours will receive a certificate upon completion in June.
