Learn to Read Thai in 2 Weeks

Learn to Read Thai in 2 Weeks

Want to learn to read Thai in about 2 weeks?*

Here’s what you will be able to do after mastering the script:

  • You will be able to read nearly any word you come across in Thai
  • You will be able to figure out what tone the word is supposed to be.
  • You will know the correct pronunciation of all of the vowels/consonants and suddenly realize that everything you and your friends have been saying all along was wrong and you will begin to understand why.
  • You will be able to tell all your friends that they are actually saying the Thai word for coffee wrong.  (then we can laugh at them together)
  • You will be able to cook Thai food (it may not taste very good).
Here is what you will not be able to do after completing the course:
  • You will not be able to read Harry Potter in Thai and understand much if anything (although if you already speak Thai you’ll catch on much faster than someone who is fob)
  • You probably will not be able to pronounce the vowels/consonants and tones perfectly just yet (but you’ll know how they are supposed to sound and just like when you exercise the bigger muscles in your body the little ones in your mouth will get better with practice)
  • You will not yet be able to understand much more than you did beforehand.  Listening is its own skill and takes time.  (this happens super fast once you get used to the sounds)
  • Your skin will not change color and you won’t look any more or less Asian than you did before you started studying with me.  (maybe after a solid year of practice you may have a shot at someone asking you if you are a ลูกครึ่ง – even if you are as non-asian-looking as I am.)
  • You will still suck at Muay Thai.

  1. LTFWG: I am submitting this comment because you said you were re-doing your website and comments/suggestions for improvement would be welcome. I think a tremendous addition/enhancement to the usefulness of the website would be if you could embed an audio track to go with the diaries and various sections of narrative text. I had referred to another thai language website in my first comments (“I Want To Learn Thai” . . . the teacher’s name is Bobo) and that teacher uses an audio embed software on her site to accompany her examples of “useful / everyday thai language phrases. However, I find that her thai texts are too short / too limited in context to be of real use, i.e., it is not easy to transition them into realistic conversational exchanges. For that reason, at least for me, they do not stimulate on going interest. Your texts are much more realistic / real world and interesting but do not include any type of audio. If you were to include an audio component (Note: it does not have to be video . . . just an embedded audio track placed below the text), I think your language site would be miles beyond any of the other language sites I have found so far. Obviously, your time is valuable . . . and we (the collective non-paying cyber language class) cannot expect the world for free. Just thought I would make the suggestion since you asked for comments, etc. . . . as it is, your language site is excellent and your effort and those of your thai helpers (especially “Boo” . . . the chemistry lab technician, she is adorable in a goofy / nerdy / unselfconsciously sexy way that is really nice.) Good luck and keep up the good work.

    • Alright, I’m on it. I sent the first diary entry back to my assistant with some edits to make it more spoken and less written. I’ve had her record audio for flashcards for my students and the quality hasn’t been very good so I don’t expect the first attempt to be very good. It will probably take a few days before I get it back and I’m off to Japan next weekend so depending on audio quality and when it gets recorded it may not be up very quickly.

      • Brian Binns says

        Thanks very much! – – Once you/your assistant gets the audio track process down, you can do it very simply and quickly, your site (I think) will really take off. Thanks for the response and have a great trip to Japan.
