The Ultimate Thai Language Lessons
Finally, the popular book Thai for Beginners has been updated and made into a comprehensive and interactive online course for both children and adults. It is designed for independent self-study, private lessons or for classroom use. It offers clear, easy, step-by-step instructions, with each lesson building on what has been previously learned.
It teaches all four of the language skills – listening, speaking, reading and writing. In addition, there are many lessons on Thai values and culture and tidbits on the Thai language. Students will develop a strong foundation of the Thai language basics. This course is appropriate for an absolute beginner in Thai and even someone who is familiar with basic Thai but who would like to review and strengthen their knowledge of the language.

The course is divided into four sections:
Section 1: Speaking & Listening
There are 14 lessons in our Speaking and Listening section. Each lesson contains new vocabulary, sentences, conversations, and many exercises. The Thai pronunciation is taught using the new and improved transliteration system called Paiboon+
Section 2: Reading & Writing
This section is designed for those who want to learn to read and write Thai from the very beginning and it contains 10 lessons. We introduce the Thai writing system at the very basic level and build on this so that by the end of the program you will have the skills to read the Thai script.
Section 3: Thai Values & Culture
This section is important for non-Thais and Thai children who were born and raised outside of Thailand. To understand the Thai language and the words Thai people use it is important to know some of the core values that make Thai culture unique.
Section 4: Tidbits on the Thai Language
This is the really fun part of the program. The Thai language contains many unique and phrases that are common but which were not included in any of the lessons. Therefore, we added this section which also includes a lot of information on colloquial Thai.
The very successful original Thai for Beginners program from 1995 has been improved with:
- More realistic conversations
- More modern vocabulary
- More advanced transliteration system
- More interactive exercises
- More content on Thai values and culture
- More teachers and actors
- More cutting-edge technology
- And more fun
Students can log on to the study portal website and learn at any time of day or night. One family can use the same account. If they want to take private lessons, they can choose from the list of our instructors. Private lessons will be conducted online via the Zoom videoconferencing app.
Students have unlimited access to the online lessons during their membership, and they will also be added to our Thai for Beginners Facebook learning group. In this private Facebook group students can ask questions regarding the lessons and interact with their teachers and their other classmates.
The most fun bonus portion of the course is the online live workshop sessions that we will offer at least twice a month. The workshops are where we will review lessons, introduce new topics on Thai culture or the Thai language and will answer questions students may have regarding the content in the course.
