Books are probably the oldest way of learning a language and there are real benefits to them. You can see what's on the page, it doesn't go. What Books are Best to Learn Thai? This is a question which inevitably comes up with every new class I teach – what books do I recommend. List of the best Learn Thai language books available on the net for

The book comes in handy for extra word work or trying to teach my friend English Phonetics Phom Bpen nak rian phaa saa Thai.

Easier and faster for a foreigner to get a command of the spoken language before learning Thai script. I hve no need to write in Thai alphabet but reading it would be handy for buses and vans etc. I am already learning to speak Thai using phonetics but would like to learn to read a bit as well.

I am Thai , need foreign to practice speak english , in the otherway I will teach Thai language to you , anybody interest please PM to me , Thanks. You need to know the word to know its a word. The hardest part are those darn compound words - you think its two separate words but really its just one with an entirely different meaning. Perfect examples are the Thai words for 'responsibility' or 'quality'. They definitely threw me off at first.

I used to think the same way, which is why I waited 7 months. But actually, I find 'wasting' the months learning to read and write greatly sped up my ability to learn to speak Thai. It'll also greatly improve your pronunciation. In the long term, you'll actually save time by making the investment. And after you learn everything in the 'learn thai' books which by the way won't get you much farther than mid-intermediate level , you'll have to read Thai to further your studies.

I'd recommend Benjawan Poomsan Becker's books. As you go thru them, you can get some of her "Speak like a thai" series as there's some stuff of value in there too. If you can get all the way thru the three levels Basic, Intermediate, Advanced you should be able to read, write and certainly converse depending on your interaction with thais as you learn at least at a very understandable level of thai.

Also, depending on your native accent you may still sound like a foreigner speaking thai, BUT hey, at least it'll be semi-cohesive fairly well structured thai rather than '2-word-tourist-thai' or 'horse-peak'. They are NOT books to teach you thai, but to teach you how the thai language is structured. Although this is slightly off topic I think it still has marginal merit ;.

I'm trading english for thai to some thais who live on my Soi but who can't read english beyond the most basic level. I found there are TONZ of thai books designed to teach english conversation to thais.

Frequently bought together

It's the exact same basis for the phonetic engrish we see used in almost all the books to teach thai to foreigners, just in reverse. There will be an english sentence written out in english, under it is the same sentence written out phonetically in thai script and below that is the thai translation of the sentence. It's pretty frickin' close to sounding like english when it's read out loud by a thai.

Until you can see a thai word and recognize it, you're gonna be at the bottom of a very long learning curve. No one who learns to read, ever reads ANY language letter by letter except at the very very early stages.

They read by recognizing 'groups' of letters equate to a word and the corresponding meaning in your native language. It is a hard slog to memorize enough vocabulary so you can the individual words in a thai sentence 'jumps' out at first glance.

Good luck, DON'T give up, if I can teach myself to read, type and to a lesser extent speak thai, anyone can, as I'm far from the sharpest knife in the drawer. I concur with farangnahrak; thai compound words which carry a completely different meaning than the individual meaning of the component words are indeed tough 'rows to hoe' in garnering the real meaning.

I will have a look for those books for Thai to learn English.

When I go in those books shops and try and find the Thai basics books for Thai people I get overwhelmed and can't find anything and have to leave! I have a somewhat ridiculous collection of books from my years studying Thai. Here is just one bookshelf:.

The best book I've found for a beginner trying to learn reading and writing, without a doubt, is "Reading and Writing Thai" by Somsonge Burusphat.

Here's a picture of the cover:.

Thai Language Books: A Review of Available Titles

If you can find it, I give it two enthusiastic thumbs up. It's very well structured, easy to work your way though and covers everything. This is not a book that will give you much vocabulary.

It's focus is just on being able to read and write, not comprehension. For this example, I was actually wondering what was this "receive-incorrect-likes" before breaking down the word. There usedo be a great book caleld "Fundamentals of the Thai Language" - I used it to learn how to read but alas it seem to be out of print now. You need to be a member in order to leave a comment.
