Reviews - What do our customers think?
audio would be a big help  Nov 21, 2009
This us actually a potentially useful book for someone who wants to go straight into Thai having already learned the alphabet- someone, that is, who doesn't want to be bothered with confusing and competing systems of transcription that ore offered in other books. Most books on Thai that I have seen teach a few of the letters at a time as they move from lesson to lesson, but at least two of them-'Teach Yourself Thai' and 'Thai for Beginners' do offer the lessons in the authentic system of writing as well as the transcription, so after wending one's way through this course it will be possible to just white out the transcription and read straight from the real deal.

The problem is that many of the sounds are unfamiliar to English speakers (or, indeed to speakers of most languages outside of Southeast Asia) and many sounds (particularly the vowels) are hard for beginners to distinguish. And this book really doesn't offer much guidance in what the letters it is teaching you to read and write actually sound like and there is the added problem that Thai is a tonal The venerable and much scorned 'Easy Thai' is actually better for this and offers the added bonus of teaching the order of letters used in Thai dictionaries and even some 'look-up' practice. Using this book as a stand-alone, it is very easy to get confused about which letters are which, just because it so vague about the sound system. If you have a Thai teacher, then it cculd work out all right, but without an audio to accompany the book, it's hard to see how it could really give a learner the running start in Thai that they were hoping for when they bought it. A couple of small pluses- it does show how how to hand-write the letters, and it is printed in an attractive typeface.
Good book, will help you with Thai  Oct 6, 2009
Thai is very hard to learn for western, the letters take even more work. I found this book a great help.
Thai Writing Scheme  Jan 8, 2009
As a basic introduction to writing the Thai language, this book presents the basic introduction. It will not be a book that I carry around though. I find the English representation of Thai characters very cumbersome and with little merit. Though the representative sound system is the most widely used method of understanding pronunciation, I have never found this method easy. I started with Gordon Allision's EASY THAI which uses standard English characters to present the sounding of Thai character combinations. Much simpler than what is used here, in my opinion.
