On 25th November 2013 at Phuket Rajabhat University, Mr Fredick Fang – President of Kunming Tour Guide Association, China, led 50 Chinese tour guide staff to participate in a training course in Thai language and culture. The training course was presided over by Phuket Rajabhat Director – Dr Prapa Kayee.
Dr Prapa said “The Thai language and culture training for Chinese tour guides in this event will allow participants to learn and have a better understanding of Thai culture and language. Furthermore, more students of Phuket Rajabhat University are now studying Chinese because they want to have experiences in China. In view of this the training will be beneficial to both parties. It is also a great way to strengthen relationships between Chinese and Thai organizations and people, which we hope will lead to further development between the two countries in the future.”
For this training course the content was covered in both English and Thai language and covered subjects including Thai food, Thai Boxing and Thai dancing as well as a range of Thai cultural treasures that foreigners appreciate.
