Thoughts on learning Thai (and other foreign languages)

The first thing is to try and “forget” your language and “pick up” the new system. This can be quite difficult, but a serious learner should make the effort. In other words, try to think in the new language. It will help immensely.
“Sentence constructions are particular to each language and generally can not be translated into Thai language directly. While on some occasions what you are saying might not be wrong, to a native speaker it might not sound right.”
Try to listen to the sounds of the language closely– this is especially important in Thai which is a tonal language.
The way to succeed here is to listen, then speak and practice as much as possible.
“Speaking is the only requirement to be fluent. It is normal for babies and children to learn speaking first, become fluent, then start reading, then writing.”
“Watch movies, listen to music, sing songs, and browse newspapers and magazines. It’s fun and helps improve your pronunciation and comprehension.”
Listen to the sound of your own voice.!
Even though you might not like hearing your own voice, this is a very useful way to find out what’s wrong with your spoken Thai. Record yourself speaking and then listen to the tape, or ask a native speaker for some advice.
Finally you should study from the best source you can find.
Study material that you can trust, that is commonly used, and that is correct.”
Ideally a professional experienced Thai language tutor is the best.
“It is difficult to learn from books alone and you don’t want to learn something incorrectly. Then it is more difficult to get it right.” Expecially if you want to have a good pronunciation! Thai language is a tonal language so you need to have a teacher to show you how to speak and correct your pronunciation in the beginning. 
“Learning Thai takes time and patience. Try to relax and take it easy. The most important thing you need in the beginning is a good vocabulary. Daily practice is very important. Starting with a foundation and slowly build on it.”
Do not worry about making mistakes, in fact the more mistakes you make, the more you will learn from them. Practice everyday and be confident!

Learn Thai from anywhere in the world “easy systematic and fun”

Hello everyone, welcome to Thai language lessons with Kruu Wee

I am Kruu (teacher) Wee, your Thai teacher! I have twelve years of experience teaching Thai to foreigners. I started while learning method of teaching Thai to foreigners in University and continued working in Thai language schools. Now I am teaching on-line using a systematic method. My objective is to make Thai language easy and fun!

I have a passion for teaching that is evident in my archive of YouTube videos. (Channel KRUU WEE TEACH THAI YouTube Channel ) My methods focus on correct pronunciation, understand what student’s problems are and know how to correct their pronunciation. And attention to the “student’s goals”. I also teaches about Thai culture, values and customs, which can be very useful for students traveling or living in Thailand.

My lessons focus on what students “want” to know and “need” to learn depending on their “purpose” of learning such as for a relationship, work or for doing business in Thailand, relocation or retirement, tourism, or just as a hobby. I supplement formal lessons with good friendly advice that all students should know before travel.

I believe that it is important to understand Thai culture as well as the language. I aim to teach on many levels including Thai values, spiritual beliefs, attitudes and the personalities of Thai people.

I like this one!
