Thai Script

Recommended Posts

Just did the first writing lesson in my book. Have been joining the dots to make letters like a three year old, but wow. Only did four consonants and four long vowels, plus the tone marks, so don't want to get carried away, but suddenly it's not so scary.

 

The book showed how these eight letters go together to make words, and it felt so good to be reading a few basic words of Thai.

 

I'm really excited! I should have done this a year ago!

Which book is this? Is it a school book or one we can find online?

 

Picking up some Thai before going back in the spring would be a good thing indeed...

"Thai for beginners" is an excellent starting point, also providing you with a vocabulary more than adequate to make yourself understood in thai in several situations. Coupled with the audio CD it also gives you a clear idea of the correct pronunciation of the different letters - especially the vowels, that in the english-based translitterations are often hard to figure out correctly. And, once you manage to read the words straight from the thai script learning thai itself will become much easier.

I don't believe there's a lie in every smile.

Thanks for the tip. I will try this one.

Was wondering where to begin learning Thai, but this seems a good starting point.

Thai is not all that hard to learn to read, but writing is another matter since there are so many dupilcate letters. Once upon a time I could write fairly well. I haven't done so for years and now I can't spell anything anymore. :(

    • 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
      18th April - where angels play Soi 6
      25th April -  (next bar we have open)

      2nd May - (next bar we have open)
      9th May - Cooters bar soi 6
