Learning Thai alphabet video


Recommended Posts

Well for a little while now I have been looking into good ways to learn the alphabet myself...learning to read in another langauge is definitly key to picking it up quickly and understanding...I only regret not trying to learn it when I first started learning...


I am one to always say keep it simple, so why not start learning as a child would.....here is a video I think is great and makes it easier to remember.....My Thai teacher is back in Bangkok right now so I have not had any lessons for a while...but I showed her the video and she laughed at me and told me her neice watches the same one and she is 2...


honestly this transliteration stuff is killing me...I see people spell things differently than I would and when they write something I'd understand I don't....When I studied Arabic the first thing was to learn the alphabet and it really is the best way I believe..enjoythe video!!

neat vid.


when i started to learn the alphabet I just wrote it and wrote it until i remembered all consonants and vowels, took a while before I could write them all out but really helped me remember. I had thai friends that had trouble remembering the order in which the chracters come and they had to start singing a song in order to remember :10of10Score:


+1 for learning to read, i put it off as I thought it would be too hard/too much of a headache but it doesn't take that long if you chip at it daily and the benefits will impact on your spoken thai quite quickly. Writing is a different kettle of fish though as I constantly make errors.

I found myself at a loss when attempting to learn Thai script, but going back to basics and learning like a Thai child is possibly the best way. While idly Googling I found The Thai Hypermarket site .


A couple of pertinent pages...

Thai Alphabet Flashcards


Thai First Reader Package


I've ordered both the above. Prices include worldwide shipping, payment can be through Paypal for security and communication by email is fast and efficient. Worth a look.

    • For those that don't know, I did Friday meetings before many years ago,  I feel like we are missing a regular meeting for members,  I am aware guys meet at PA affiliated bars. But I want to start meeting people again, I'm inviting the guys following my YouTube also.

      The meetings is a chance to get to meet each other,  I plan to be at every meeting, I also have Dean from Dive bar that has offered to help out with a crawl after.
      The meetings will be  Monday  6 pm - 8 pm each week.  (The improvised bar crawl will commence at 8 p.m.  Dean will make his own plans for that.)

      Due to low numbers of people in town, I will start the meetings in our bars to help our girls and managers, please check back often incase things are changed.  I will be sharing the love around town later, but Soi 6 is first on my list (including bars that are friendly competition)   
      If bar owners want us to have a meeting at their bar,  they need to have a minimum of 10 girls.  I'm not dragging people to empty bars for favours.
      Please help us invite other members, it takes a while to get momentum.
      Monday 6 pm - 8pm  (then bar crawl after)
      21st March - Playpen Soi 6
      28th March - Night wish bar Soi 6
      4th April - Toy Box bar Soi 6
      11th April - Repent Soi 6
