Hi, Chris and Angela: I just wanted to make a comment to this post regarding thai language study. I have been studying with a teacher named Miki. She is a very intelligent and talented teacher living in Bangkok. They also have developed an on-going Podcast series that has a two-tiered learning study focus: 1 for Beginner learners; and 2 for Intermediate to Advanced learners of Thai. The Podcast series is absolutely superb.
Thanks, Brian, for sharing this. What a great resource for both us and our readers!
How to Teach Yourself Thai
We be sure to take a look at this tonight. As always with languages, there are so many different ways of studying. Self studying takes a lot of discipline, but you can get pretty far at your own pace. Supplemented with a tutor to fine-tune things like tones and sentence structure or pronunciation is great. It is not an easy task because there are so many sources of Thai language study information available online books, CDs, Youtube, MP3 audio, etc.
They look like an excellent way for beginner Thai language learners to bump it up to an intermediate level. Great recommendation! The fact the videos use this font is good for exposure and learning to recognize the letters.

I love the pimsleur series but had no idea they did a Thai one. Glad we could point that out for you. If you do purchase it we would be grateful if you could do it through the link in this post. Best of luck learning Thai. Take care and have a great day! I took three years of German in high school and two years in college.
Programs and books are great helpers, but there is no substitute for interacting with a native speaker.
I worked with two guys years ago who taught each other to speak fluent Spanish and English respectively while working on the line. It make their working hours pass much faster. Also, some language learners have high affective filters so named by Stephen Krashen that makes it harder to learn language. Completely agree. Interaction with a native speaker is one of the best ways to reinforce what you have learned through self study. We try to practice with our Thai friends whenever we are out and about.
Thanks for sharing. Thanks for the book ideas. A free youtoob search of Thaipodcast. There are many free lessons that can get you started. They break down the phrases well and repeat them slowly with a native Thai speaker. No problem Roger! Youtube is a fantastic resource. We go heavy on the books and the audio programs as we find Youtube can be easy to deviate from with the suggested videos, ads, and other websites. Definitely good for quick shots of information though! Because we are rarely in a country for more than 1 or 2 months during this trip, it makes it really hard for us to learn a respectable amount of any of the local languages.
We agree. If you can read and write the characters it makes the tones not seem so daunting. It comes with time, but it starts to stick after studying and interacting with Thai people in their own language for a while.
The exaggerated sounds do also help quite a bit. Thanks for you comment Steph! But you are right, it all comes down to how much you want it. I am impressed by your reading abilities so far ;- I only know 2 characters. Only 74ish more characters to go!
