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.

Starting with Thai words & grammarIf you just started to learn Thai there are two main hurdles you have to take. Learn some common Thai language words quickly and understand the structure of the language to be able to form sentences.
This is exactly what we focus on in the beginner section of the course. You learn a hand picked selection of more than 3000 of the most common Thai words (+ 1000 more in the intermediate section). We selected words that you will actually use in every day life so that you can start to speak basic Thai in a matter of days.
Besides Thai vocabulary you learn all you need to know about the structure of the Thai language in over 40 grammar lessons. The grammar lessons have matching review lessons to make practicing what you have learned easy and fun.
Learn the Thai language rapidlyAll our lessons come with lots of examples. Examples are so important because you see what you have learned in different contexts and therefore it becomes easier to remember. This works for words and grammar rules. Another benefit is that you develop a natural feeling for the sentence structure and the flow of the Thai language. After learning with our lessons for some time you will instinctively put the words in the right order.
All our examples and actually everything we do comes with word by word translations. That means we break down every sentence, if possible, even every word into single words. Did you know that the Thai word for “handkerchief” actually consists of three words? In Thai it is “fabric” “to wipe” “face”. So by remembering the word by word translation for the word “handkerchief” you actually remember three words.
This learning technique is called chunking and is a proven system to remember more information faster. Our brain can just store groups of information easier than single bits and pieces. This brings us to the next technique we use in our course to enable you to learn faster and more efficient.
Different levels of language inputStudies show that exposure to language input of different difficulty levels helps you to learn faster. This works similar to training your muscles. In order to become stronger in a shorter period of time you have to challenge yourself.
The difficulty level increases from lesson to lesson. You can also try to learn with our intermediate conversation lessons right from the beginning.
Intermediate and advanced lessons come in groups of lessons that relate to each other and in which you practice the same words and concepts throughout different lessons without having to go over the same content over and over again. This makes learning more fun, more interesting and faster because you see words and concepts in different contexts.
Unlike learning in a Thai language class you can learn with our course at your own pace. Go back and forward and repeat passages in lessons you want to focus on as often as you want or skip complete lessons about things you already know.
