ภาษาไทย Thai Language

Not at the moment, but I dabbled with a few beginner’s resources a while back, yet my competence is very, very low… I always keep an eye open for resources for a wide range of languages, even if not actively studying them at the moment. Thai and Khmer are one/two of those ‘I will get back to learning this/these one day’ languages. :smiley:

Hey guys, I’ve found a good podcast for learning Thai and I want to share it with you. It has both the desktop version and mobile version on Apple and Spotify. The content is suitable for all learners and the transcript is available in English, Thai and romanizations. There are a variety of topics and it is quite engaging and interesting, not dry at all. I’ve been listening to it for a few days and I’m loving it! :grinning:
You too can learn Thai podcasts

@Joshuaz shared with me some Thai learning youtube channels last Friday after the language exchange and I found this one particularly useful : Learn Thai with Shelby. I like how she explains the expressions Thai people use in their daily life and also things that we shouldn’t say to avoid sounding weird and awkward :grinning:

I found this very useful website for learning Thai : Thai Notes. This website is very comprehensive.

Thai alphabets, reading, grammar are all very well explained and they even teach you how to type in Thai!

They also have a Thai-English dictionary and the explanations are pretty clear.

They also have flash cards for vocab and also a checker for you to check if you’ve typed the Thai alphabets in the correct order. IPA and Thai typing tools also available in this website.

I enjoyed using this website to supplement my Thai studies a lot and I highly recommend this website to everyone especially those self-studying.

Hello guys! I’m here to share another resource for Thai learning. I’m sure many of us who are working on reading and writing Thai have definitely felt frustrated about the complexity of Thai alphabet rules, especially the god-forsaken invisible vowels. They are technically there but yet not there but you have to know they are there and it’s just so annoying to see a bunch of consonants with no vowels, not knowing how to go about reading them. It lowers your confidence level and passion for Thai and yes, I’m now at this stage, but gradually coming out because after many intensive reading and writing practice sessions, I’m getting the hang of it :slight_smile:

Hence, I want to share this valuable resource on tackling the invisible vowel rules to help those who are struggling now and also to pre-empt and save the hassle for those who want to learn Thai someday. This blog explains in detail the invisible vowel rules in 3 blog posts and gave lots of examples. They show you how the vowels combine and change, how the vowels become ‘invisible’ and lists all the scenarios with explanations and examples. It is a very helpful resource to me and I hope it can benefit you as well :v:t2: @RonP @Rina
