Looking for children's books to learn thai. Any recommendations


Recommended Posts

Right fellow mongers. It has come to this, what children's books will teach me the alphabet.  So I can painfully try translating a 1 year old children's story, before graduating on to the dizzy heights of Thai seismic Street. I fear the slow and painful method is the only one left that will work. Thankfully I am surrounded by thais at work to help me in this endeavor. I have found this but not bought it yet https://www.amazon.co.uk/Thai-Alphabet-Book-Kids-Educational/dp/B087FG9LX9/ref=asc_df_B087FG9LX9/?tag=googshopuk-21&linkCode=df0&hvadid=435704109807&hvpos=&hvnetw=g&hvrand=11007889907347747244&hvpone=&hvptwo=&hvqmt=&hvdev=m&hvdvcmdl=&hvlocint=&hvlocphy=9045006&hvtargid=pla-908299310042&psc=1&th=1&psc=1&tag=&ref=&adgrpid=103760559080&hvpone=&hvptwo=&hvadid=435704109807&hvpos=&hvnetw=g&hvrand=11007889907347747244&hvqmt=&hvdev=m&hvdvcmdl=&hvlocint=&hvlocphy=9045006&hvtargid=pla-908299310042 I'm tired of buying things that are useless

Not an alphabet book, but there is the free Manee childrens book series:

There is a youtube lesson based on the Manee books here:

If you are surrounded by Thais willing to help then this is one of the best and cheapest ways to do it. Not the most fun as it does not start with sentences and a story like Mana Manee, but drills you to read all the permutations. Anyway, read the review here and the whole series of books are available to buy online. The Mana Manee set of books is also available to buy online for pennies too, but you can also download Mana Manee set as free ebooks as well as stated/linked above).

I’d suggest you get Thai alphabet flash cards to start. Basically a park of cards, with one for each letter. Shuffle them up and then test yourself a few at a time each day. Available at any book store. Look for ones with drawings as it can help with the memorisation initially and you’ll learn a new word.
