I have tried lessons, tapes and even went to a language school but nothing compares with the LTP premium course. I couldn't believe it. Thanks for making learning Thai fun.

Speak & understand real street Thai
After "learning" Thai from several popular books I felt I was ready to speak Thai. Boy was I wrong. While I could speak a bit Thai I couldn't understand what any Thai was saying to me. I was lucky to find your course and your conversation lessons changed that. Now I can understand most Thais and I improved my Thai so much faster than with those books. Great job!

Just speaking Thai isn't enough.
The LTP Premium Course focuses on real street Thai the way it is spoken today. In our conversation lessons you hear and see native Thai speakers talking like they would talk with you.
You learn to speak and understand
modern Thai instead of outdated dictionary Thai. Conversation lessons come in two different flavours. Some are like interviews in which you hear a single native Thai speaker speaking and some are dialogue lessons in which two or more people talk to each other.
Learn to understand TV Thai
Thai in news reports or documentaries is different to Thai spoken on the street. We want you to be able to get as much language input as possible from different sources. That's why we have advanced news report lesson cycles in which you can learn this more formal way of speaking Thai.
Conversation & News Report Lessons
These lessons are the central part of our lesson cycles.
Get in-depth explanations.
Learn step by step.
This course is addictive. I've used other learning tools and made hardly any progress. With your course I make progress week for week and it doesn't even seem like work. Thank you!

Thai learning so easy
you'll actually learn Thai.
All lessons have word by word translations
so you get a feeling for the word order and forming Thai sentences becomes natural for you.
Every grammar rule you learn comes along with several examples
to illustrate how to use it and we break down more complicated concepts into several pieces with individual examples for easy "digestion".
Grammar & word usage lessons
Not sure when to use a certain word or phrase? If something is appropriate to say? Just started to learn Thai and you want to be confident to form different types of sentences?
Learn everything you need to know about Thai grammar and word usage
from telling the time to picking the right words step by step, with in-depth explanations and lots of practical examples.
Review what you have learned
Make sure what you have learned sticks with you. In our review lessons you can test and reinforce what you have learned and see the words, grammar rules and other concepts in a different context.
Grammar & word usage lessons
Learn more efficient with lesson cycles.
You guys offer fantastic value for money. Other products are more expensive and just cover the basics. You go into detail and your step by step approach leaves no questions. Thanks!

Learn Thai vocabulary quickly & easily.
Your Premium Course has truly helped me out on my job and it gets easier every day to communicate with my Thai colleagues. I highly recommend it for everyone who wants to learn Thai.

Learn over 4000 of the most common
Besides conversation lessons you can build up your vocabulary with our vocabulary lessons. In each lesson you learn about 10 words. You can take a lesson with you or import the words into your vocabulary trainer to test yourself.
Extended Vocabulary Lessons
In these lessons you not only learn new words and phrases, you also see one or more example sentences of them in use. This helps you to feel confident how to use a word or phrase within a sentence, reinforces grammar rules and makes them become second nature.
To make learning vocabulary complete you can use the LTP vocabulary trainer. You can test and rate how well you know certain words or phrases from our lessons, listen to them, and organize them in lists according to topics or how well you recall them.
The settings allow you to learn the way you want to, no matter if you want to see Thai first, English first, the transliteration first or a combination of them.
Reading & writing Thai is no rocket science
Just a quick note to let you know how I feel about your course. I was thinking that I would try it out, but probably end up asking for my money back, but that won't be necessary. Overall, I'm extremely impressed with your course and so is my Thai wife who is amazed how quickly I learn to speak and understand Thai.

Learn to read & write Thai.
The LTP Premium Course has a dedicated section with detailed theory lessons
, practice lessons
, intermediate reading lessons
, writing exercises
and more if you want to learn how to read and write Thai.
Thai alphabet mnemonics
The first step to learning to read and write Thai is mastering the Thai alphabet.
To speed up this process you can learn with the help of our Thai alphabet mnemonics. Mnemonics are basically memory aids that will help you to remember the sound, class and shape of each letter easily.
The example on the right shows the Thai letter "thaw mon-tho". By remembering the picture of a turtle at the beach you remember the...
because the letter shape looks similar to a turtle.
because the sound is "T" like "t" in turtle.
the turtle is on the beach, the beach stands for a low class.
Along with the illustrations you can hear the sound, see an animation of how it is written, see examples of words that use this letter and different ways of writing the letter. You can also download and print a writing excercise for each letter.
Reading & writing lessons
Easy to use, get started in 5 minutes.
Besides that your lessons have a well thought out structure they work as my daily motivator to learn Thai. It is so much easier to learn with your lessons than digging through books. You guys are doing a really good job. Thank you very much!

"Everyone who is serious about learning Thai will love the course." (and we guarantee that)
Your method of teaching was completely unfamiliar to me. I had taken Thai lessons in person for a few months but became uninterested and bored quickly. I'm not sure if it was the lack of structure or my lack of motivation. I'm happy that a friend from Thailand recommended me your program. It just works for me. I love taking your lessons with me when I go for a walk or just have some free minutes while waiting for something. You have a truly unique approach to teaching Thai and I will recommend your course to others. Everyone who is serious about learning Thai will love the course.

I'm very pleased with the course. The practical lessons and self directed learning is great!

I took some Thai lessons while visiting Bangkok last year. It was interesting but my Thai teacher didn't really know how to teach, but now, with your excellent course I can study at my leisure and whenever I feel like learning. Your daily vocabulary lessons are great and the premium lessons gave me an in depth understanding of the Thai grammar. I wish I would have found your site earlier.
Bjoern Lindh, LTP Premium Course Member
17 years ago I moved to Bangkok. I had found the love of my life here but her English was so good that I never cared to really learn Thai. I'm retired now and spend a lot of time online so I came across your site one day. I'm so happy that this happened. I'm a member since 6 weeks now and all the bits and pieces that I was able to learn in my time here come together. I didn't expect that I could be so passionate about the Thai language. Thank you and keep up the good work!
