You need to be exposed to the language on many levels. Learning Thai is quite different to say, learning French, which, as an English speaker, I find really easy to pick up — because it's not that far removed from my native language in terms of alphabet and many similar words. Luckily, in this digital age, we have access to courses like Pimsleur Thai that offer a comprehensive immersion experience, specialising in learning languages that aren't intuitive to the learner. Essentially he was a language master, teaching French phonetics and phonemics at UCLA, and later on carrying out research on language acquisition that gave birth to the Pimsleur Language Learning Method, an approach that is based on four core principles:.

During Dr. This is really important because as you may have discovered already, often you learn a Thai word today, then when you find yourself in a situation where you want to use it, suddenly you can't recall it. This is because it hasn't transferred into the long-term memory. As you probably know from trying to remember lots of Thai phrases, trying to learn too much actually slows down the learning process. For this reason, Dr.

Therefore, a core part of the Pimsleur technique focuses on systematically asking for understanding, pausing for a response, and then reinforcing the correct response. This way learning is accelerated through the activation of new neural pathways in the brain.

Pimsleur follows an organic structure that always teaches words and phrases within the context of a conversation or exchange. This allows the brain to automatically integrate intonation, rhythm and pronunciation. I used to blame this on being bad at languages. I'm just not that guy who is good at exams or reading and retaining tons of information. But after discovering the Pimsleur technique, I began to understand why my brain worked the way it did and that I'm not bad at learning, rather often, not always, learning in the wrong way.

I adopted this technique into other areas of my study too. Perhaps the most difficult thing about Thai is mastering the accent and intonation. There is no way to learn this other than to keep hearing conversations in incremental doses and internalising the sound.

In this respect, the Pimsleur audio-learning approach is extremely effective; because you internalise with the lessons and then externalise by practicing with native speakers. This totals 16 hours learning. The suggested learning time is just minutes a day, so while 16 hours might seem a lot, the Pimsleur approach is gentle but effective. Why pay double for the CDs when you can download and burn the audio to CD if you need it? This Pimsleur course management app now comes free as standard with every purchase, for iOS and Android.

The app is a great addition to the program. It's really easy to use, so don't worry if you're not a tech-savvy app kinda person. Here's a few screenshots on both iOS and Android. While you might be apprehensive to lay out the cash, look at it as an investment that will pay dividends over time.

This is why Thais appreciate it when a foreigner learns to speak Thai, because it demonstrates that they have a genuine interest in trying to understand Thailand — Thainess and everything that comes with it.

However, I bought the course a couple of years ago, and ended up asking for a refund because the native thai male speaker is speaking waaay too fast compared to the native thai female speaker, and I found his pronunciation to be lazy, again compare to the female speaker.

So, I found a solution which solved the situation. Apart from this, it is an excellent system that I encourage your readers to follow. And thanks also for a wonderful blog. I have recommended it to many of my expat friends. I have been to Thailand many times. I met my wife in Thailand she is from Hat Yai almost 30 years ago. I have often tried to learn Thai and I have a fair grasp and can follow conversations, but I agree on two points - You need to hear native speakers to understand the tonal parts of the speech - it can make a HUGE difference in how you are understood.

I also highly recommend learning Thai writing. Western alphabet characters do not do the Thai language justice. If you need to learn the proper pronunciation and can see it written in Thai you will immediately understand how the word needs to be pronounced. Bear in mind Thais speak with different accents and pronunciations. Southern Thai is clipped and a bit harsher than Northern Thai.

NE Thai is different yet again. Prices apart; i. Of much lesser important, there must be a mistake somewhere coz it seems paying in 5 parts SAVES usd 9. I'd say the Pimsleur method is more classic in style and better suited to those who were brought up with learning through this style of memory recall. Thaipod is a more modern style program for those who want a more fun approach to learning. They are both worth having in my opinion, because Pimsleur will only take you through the beginner phase, whereas Thaipod goes right up to intermediate-advanced.

You can read my review of Thaipod here. Hi just finished Thai pimsleur, what would you recommend to do next to continue learning Thai?

It really depends what level you are at. You can check out my review of Thaipod here , which is very good. With any book or course though, I reccommend as much real life immersion as possible.

Speak Thai with Thais as much as you can. Leave a Reply Cancel reply Your email address will not be published. Send this to a friend. Send Cancel.
