How to learn Thai by yourself? Start with an easy and free online course!We have adopted an objective and efficient approach to learn how to speak a language easily and quickly: we suggest you to start by memorizing words, phrases and practical expressions that you can use in everyday life and that will be useful when traveling.
Getting used to pronounce words out loud, numbers for exemple, is an easy exercise that you can practice often and at anytime throughout the day. And it will help you to get used to the sounds of your chosen language and thus make it more familiar.
And once your holidays have begun, in Bangkok, Pattaya, or in another city in Thailand, you will be surprised how familiar and easy to understand it will seem.
Furthermore, using a pocket dictionary is always useful, particularly during a trip. It enables you to find the translation of new words and enrich your vocabulary.
Why speak Thai while traveling?An economic power filled with sumptuous temples, remarkable palaces and magnificent beaches... Whether you are a potential investor, an adventurer or an enthusiast of exceptional holidays, Thailand is an unmissable destination, and speaking this language will be an undeniable asset for you on many levels.
An integral member of the Asian Tigers, Thailand is a regional economic power whose economy is based on agribusiness (notably rice and prawns), the export industry, particularly in the electronic and chemical sectors, and tourism.
Make a success of your stay in ThailandWhether you are going to spend a few days with friends for a leisure trip or if you are on a business trip, nothing will be more useful to you than to be able to slip a few words in the language of your interlocutors, who will appreciate your effort and will be certainly more willing to help.
How to succeed in having good pronunciation within a week to a month?The official language of Thailand, Thai is written with a syllabary alphabet of 20 consonants and 24 vowels. The language has a tonal system of 5 tonemes: low, medial, high, descending and ascending.
Although transliterations exist, the difficulty of transcribing its alpha syllabary into Latin characters makes it especially important to master the system of writing the language.
Whilst Thai writing and pronunciation seem difficult, other aspects of the language make it easy to learn, such as the invariability of words and simple morphology, as there are no articles, gender, plurals or conjugation. All these functions are fulfilled by the determinant particles.
Here are some examples of pronunciation:The หา is pronounced with a strong expiration.
The จา is pronounced as in “djin”.
The letters ขา, พา and ทา are pronounced K, P and T expired.
The วา is pronounced OU as in “watt”.
