Your obj for learning is to speak the lang, read and write or both. A good language audio book is a good ideal to begin. However practice made perfect. I've studied the language for over one year in S'pore jus to find out that no one understand me when in Thailand :confused:

I have a book with CD, Thai for Beginners, and while is good, is limited. I've learnt from there and while in Thailand recently, people could understand me. Would like to be able to read the script. That's why want to attend lessons.

Writing the script itself is VERY difficult, learning how to write/speak the characters is one thing, understanding it is another. Practice! In the mean while, I'll just stick to learning how to speak it. :p

Good luck to u. I know very basic Thai, and I want to improve and upgrade also. Everytime when I want to sign up the NUS course, I then think about it, whether I can commit myself and finish the whole course or not.
Sometime ago, I committed myself to go for a 2-year ITE course in Automotive Technology, and I finished it. I think I can do this. Wanna sign up together?
