Read-&-Write-Thai

Learning Aims

Thai Script Made Simple

The Read & Write Thai course has been developed to help individuals learn the Thai alphabet, reading and writing system, grammar, sentences and general conversation.

We have developed a new method to learning and teaching Thai script designed for English speakers. The method provides detailed explanations along with a simple layout and easy to follow sections that build on each other.

 

  • Reading and writing ; Thai consonants, vowels, tone marks, language symbols and Thai numbers
  • Grammar ; Reading and writing system, the combinations of syllables and words, tone modulation system
  • Pronunciation ; Letters, tones, syllables and words
  • Vocabulary ; Simple words to complicated words
  • Conversation skills ; Speaking Thai during the class with your teacher

 

 


Starting Skills : Who is it for?

For learners who already speak some Thai and want to develop reading and writing skills

This course teaches only Thai script and all the related grammar rules. You should be able to speak some basic Thai already; be able to distinguish the Thai tones and understand Thai sounds.

 

  • Suitable for learners who already speak basic Thai 
  • Suitable for learners who just want to learn Thai script

 

Note : If you cannot already speak basic Thai we recommend you to learn our Speak, Read & Write Course in order to develop conversation skills alongside learning Thai script.

 


Course Duration

There is no set duration

Every learner is different and there is no ‘one size fit all’ method to learn any language. Therefore, we have no set duration to learn our courses. You can learn for as long as you need at a pace to suit you.

 

  • Only Pay For The Time You Learn
  • Lifetime Access To Materials
  • Change Teacher/Location Anytime
  • Start / Stop / Start Anytime
  • Lifetime Support

 

The average learner will complete the Speak, Read & Write Thai Course in around 60-90 hours private tuition. This may be more or less depending on your starting skills, how you learn a language and how much you practice.
