The AUA Thai Reading and Writng Regular Program is an integrated part of our Thai Fluency Course . If you are enrolled in the Fluency Course, it's not necessary to study Reading and Writing separately. It is designed for students who have an understanding equivalent of Advanced or higher (or you have completed at least 30 hours in the Introduction to Reading and Writing Course). Though our program is designed for those who have studied with us from the start, we also accept students with various backgrounds. The first three writing levels use the textbooks below. They may be purchased at our center. Following this, students progress to Levels 4 and 5, and ultimately to the government equivalency examination for which we offer a special preparation class.
4. The “dawn of man” introduction. This kind of introduction generally makes broad, sweeping statements about the relevance of this topic since the beginning of time, throughout the world, etc. It is usually very general (similar to the placeholder introduction) and fails to connect to the thesis. It may employ cliches–the phrases “the dawn of man” and “throughout human history” are examples, and it’s hard to imagine a time when starting with one of these would work. Instructors often find them extremely annoying.
