Summary

The Pimsleur® Method: the easiest, fastest way to learn a new language. Completely portable, easily downloadable, and lots of fun. You’ll be speaking and understanding in no time flat! Thai Phase 1, Units 26-30 build on material taught in prior units. Each lesson provides 30 minutes of spoken language practice, with an introductory conversation, and new vocabulary and structures. Detailed instructions enable you to understand and participate in the conversation. Each lesson contains practice for vocabulary introduced in previous lessons. The emphasis is on pronunciation and comprehension, and on learning to speak Thai. Reading Lessons are included at the end of Unit 30 to provide you with an introduction to reading the Thai alphabet. These lessons, which total about one hour, are designed to teach you to sound out words with correct pronunciation and accent. A Reading Booklet to be used with the audio lessons is also included in PDF format.
PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your Library section along with the audio.

Easy and intuitive

I travel in Asia a lot and have had to get a working knowledge of several non-related and often difficult tonal languages, often in a short space of time. I've found Pimsleur the best to get you up and running, mainly because the approach is purely auditory - listen and repeat. Just half and hour every day (eg, while coming to with coffee) for a month, listen and repeat... perfectly suited for the audiobook format. After that, when you go to take up your more formal language study - or simply hop off a plane with a phrasebook - you already have a feel for the pronounciation and flow of the language so you can easily focus on WHAT you're saying instead of HOW and can even understand native speakers a little better.

Although they say a few things in this Thai series that I doubt would normally be said (but I think that occurs in every system), they're certainly not gaffs and the central Thai spoken is clear and easy to follow. At the end of Phase 1, there is a PDF and a series of audio files to introduce you to written Thai which also seems accurate and well-done.

I would also recommend them for other languages: my husband struggled with putonghua (Mandarin) books but is now speaking reasonably after completing Phase 3.

Pimsluer Thai Rocks!

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes I would for sure recommend this program to anyone wishing to learn the Thai language.

Any additional comments?

This is the best format I have come across for learning to converse in Thai. Pity Pimsleur does not offer a level 2.
