Learning Thai

*This used to be a page, but have published it as a post to save blog space.

Apart from a few tourist phrases, I can't speak Thai. ช่วยเหลือ (help).

I will be learning it, there, eventually, but wanted to get a head start. I've found these sites to be invaluable and use them in conjunction with each other.

Thai Language You can search Thai/English in many different ways and many of the words have audio.

Learning Thai I found school books on this site and lessons etc. I am studying Marnee and friends for grade one Students. You can down load the actual book at Josh Sager's Blog, among other things.

Of course there is also good, old Wikipedia for official info on Thai script.

For ALL things Thai look at Paknam Web, chat, forums, news, language, travel, stories etc. etc.

A Thai Online Keyboard can be handy.

Martyn suggested this site, Women Learn Thai, which also looks really helpful and easy to follow.

Snap, first thanks for the link to my Thai site Beyond The Mango Juice, I appreciate that.

Secondly on the subject of learning the Thai language which for me is very difficult, I can recommend an excellent Thai blog which has a wealth of languages resources available. Women Learning Thai...and some men too, is for me a first class blog which can really improve your language skills if you are determined enough to succeed. Here's the link

Try it and see for yourself.

Thanks for the info Martyn.

I fear that my (self inflicted) preparation for my Thai course has slipped by the wayside lately due to work and laziness. I will definitely take a look at the site...It certainly couldn't hurt :)
