THAI LANGUAGE LESSONS

These lessons are intended to give an introduction to the Thai Language beyond our basic Thai Language page. You will not become fluent in Thai by following these lessons but they can provide a good starting point or addition to other learning sources. There is no substitute for personal lessons with a native Thai speaker.

These lessons are designed for beginner to intermediate learners. We will try to keep each lesson short rather than overwhelm you with more information than you can possibly soak up. It is better to learn little and often than to occasionally do long sessions.

We will continue to add new lessons so please return even after you have been through all the current lessons.
