How to Learn Thai
Thai is the official Language of Thailand, and the mother tongue of more than 60 million people. Outside of Thailand, there are large collections of native Thai speakers located in Northern Malaysia, Cambodia, Southern Burma, Laos, the United States, Canada, France, and England. The best reason to learn Thai is so you can visit Thailand with the respect of the locals. Thailand is internationally infamous for its party atmosphere, but partying in Thailand can be very dangerous if you do not speak the language.
This beautiful, exotic land is worth well more than a drunken trip to Bangkok. The crystal clear beaches and dense jungle of Thailand has been the location of countless Hollywood films including Leonardo Dicaprio’s The Beach. Thailand is a dream getaway for any person on a quest to visit the world’s most beautiful beaches.
For this unique language, I would recommend the book, Decoding Paradise. This e-book is guaranteed to help you learn the 44 consonants and 32 vowels that compose the Thai alphabet in just 60 minutes. This proven technique uses imagery as a way to help you memorize every letter. I have not personally learned Thai, but my brother speaks the language and he has been raving about this product. Thai is a fairly difficult language, and this e-book is the most effective method of learning the Thai alphabet.
Once you have mastered the alphabet, Rosetta Stone will be imperative for learning this difficult vocabulary and pronunciation techniques. Thai is a language in which pronunciation is extremely important. If your tone is slightly off, native speakers may misinterpret what you are saying to mean something else entirely. The voice recognition software with Rosetta Stone is the perfect tool for guaranteeing that your pronunciation is correct with this difficult language.
The practicality of Thai outside of Thailand is low, but the attraction drawing you to this tropical oasis is gigantic. Home to some of the most beautiful beaches on the planet, Thailand sets the standard for the term exotic paradise. This may be a difficult language to learn, but being able to communicate in the native tongue will ensure that your tropical adventure is all the more special.
