learn thai from a white guy

Recommended Posts

Hi,
I'm looking for an Thai language course to start read and write.

at learnthaifromawhiteguy.com  i found an course that sound good.

 

Complete this 50+ lesson course and you will be able to:
✓ Read nearly any Thai word.
✓ Figure out the tone of any Thai word.
✓ Be able to pronounce any word you see correctly.
✓ Quickly realize how bad everyone sounds if they can't read and why.

 

For 127 USD i thing is ok so far.

Has somebody used this course and do it really work?

Thanks in advance for your review or advice

Perhaps the best way to learn is to go to a  mormon missionary training school. The My Mate Nate guy was a mormon missionary and his Thai is quite impressive. All of the mormon missionaries I have encountered have an impressive language skill.

True, but then they are also nutjobs like Nate himself.

to the OP,

 

Did you ever meet anyone who became fluent in Thai from any program of books and tapes?  Me neither.

I haven't tried Brett's course. It probably works if you can motivate yourself to get through it. However, if it were me, I'd go with an online Thai teacher. For the cost of Brett's book of $127, you can book an online Thai teacher via Skype for 8 hours and learn to read, write and type in Thai in a more interactive and motivating way.

Learn Thai from a white guy?..

 

I was unaware that skin colour was an academic point of reference!!?

Don't be a putz.  The issue is not skin color, but the fact that the white guy is not a native speaker of Thai and probably isn't even competent in it.

Don't be bigot.  Words have strong meanings and implicitly...at least for those who know how to think.

Although I have my own place in Bangkok, I travel a lot outside Thailand and am never here long enough at a stretch. 

What is the best method, in your opinion, to learn Thai, and which is the recommended school/ teacher? I live by the river.

Would there be some method where I could take the classes as and when I'm in Thailand?

Hi,

 

I'm living in Pattaya for the next 12 months at least. My Thai is not very good and Just what i picked up on holidays really. So my plans are to stay here permanently now and so as an Immigrant, i feel it is proper and correct that I learn to speak the language fluently. I'm from the UK and we have seen a staggering amount of immigration there over the last 50 years and remember feeling annoyed when people could not speak our native language.

 

I'm not so bothered about being able to write or type in thai but that will surely happen once I learn to speak the language. So I am looking for advice on where to start and recommendations on who to approach.

 

The 127 USD mentioned above.... well if it was as good as the guy says it is, i guess it would be money well spent but it seems to have a fair amount of criticism. I don't mind spending a little money as long as it is money well spent.

 

Thanks in advance 

 

Richard
