Who is the course suitable for?

It is suitable for people who have absolutely no knowledge of the Thai language to those who have learnt some Thai and who now want to take their Thai learning further by being able to read and write. Those who have previously learnt some Thai reading and writing skills but who are struggling will benefit immensely from this course.

How does the course approaches teaching Thai reading and writing?

learn-thai-writing-buddha-image

This course is unique. Unlike most courses that aim to teach a person to read and write Thai, we go a step further. We believe that there is little point of being able to read and write Thai if you are unable to pronounce the word you are reading or writing correctly. To pronounce a Thai word correctly you need to be able to:-

a) Pronounce the consonant at the beginning of the word correctly.

b) Pronounce the vowel correctly.

c) Pronounce the vowel length correctly (short or long).

d) Pronounce the consonant at the end of the word correctly (if it has one).

e) Pronounce the word tone correctly

To do this you need to be able to read Thai and fully understand and apply the language rules that apply to any given word. You also need to know what a word sounds like and how to say the word. This can only be learnt by hearing each word you read and write, something our Thai audio provides.There is currently only one sure way to ensure that you have all this knowledge and ability; this course.

  • We teach you what the consonants and vowels look like.
  • We give you writing practice so that you can write them.
  • We show you what each consonant and vowel sounds like.
  • We teach you our simple to follow system for determining the tone of any word.
  • We train you to be able to accurately, comfortably, and confidently project the tone of any word (high, low, mid, rising or falling).
  • We teach you how Thai words and sentences are written and how to accurately read them.
  • We give you exercises to practice writing and develop your reading skills.
  • We fully cover language anomalies and exceptions and give clear guidance on how to deal with these. You will also learn key skills such as how to identify words with unwritten vowels (and what those vowel sounds are) and words in which have muted vowel sounds.                                                 

In short, you will learn in a simple step by step process how to read, write and speak the Thai words you are reading and writing. It will enable you to correctly pronounce the words you learn in Thai language books and enable you to build your language and vocabulary skills independent of any book (such as using Thai- English dictionaries, reading Thai books etc.).

What key benefits does this course offer?

 Key benefits of the course approach include:

  • You start writing and reading Thai words from the very first chapter.
  • Lessons introducing Thai consonant and vowels are broken up into smaller, more manageable chunks of learning to make learning them easier for you.
  • Every lesson builds on the previous so that in small but important steps you rapidly build up the knowledge and know-how to read and write Thai.
  • All lessons have extensive develop your learning exercises and feature audio flash card games to ensure you learn and can use what has been taught.
  • Lessons feature commonly used words that you can everyday conversation and situations. So as well as learning to read and write Thai script you’ll learn useful words you can use in your everyday spoken Thai.
  • Unlike other courses we teach you how to say and pitch tones correctly. If you are going to learn so many tone rules to determine what tone a Thai word should be, we certainly believe you should be able to say Thai words with the correct tone. And pronounce the words correctly so Thai people can understand what you are saying. No reading or writing course has this focus or the systems of learning we have to ensure you learn this correctly.
  • We have a strong focus on ensuring you say short and long duration vowel sounds correctly.
  • We keep all technical grammatical terms to a minimum and explain everything as simply as possible. We don’t confuse by using highly technical grammatical terms. Every relevant aspect of language is covered and explained without the use of unnecessarily technical terms though.
