Upon arrival in Thailand, AST students receive orientation to the program, to Chiang Mai University, and to the community. They also take a pre-program proficiency test and obtain housing. Classes begin on: June 23, 2014. In addition to language classes and related experiential activities, students are encouraged to sit in on CMU courses related to their field of study. Opportunities are also provided for students to network with CMU students and scholars while gaining confidence in discipline-specific vocabulary. Other program activities include two half-day field trips in Chiang Mai. The culminating activity of the program is the oral presentation by each student of the results of an interviewing project conducted in Chiang Mai.
