Thailand is a country that is famous for it’s friendly people, interesting culture, great food and beautiful nature. It’s also one of the main economies in Southeast Asia, and there are plenty of other reasons to learn a bit of Thai.
Here’s a really good video to get you started learning Thai. It will teach you how to greet someone and introduce yourself in Thai.
What I also like is that you can see the written Thai in the video while listening – this surely isn’t necessary for those who are just beginning to learn Thai or want to learn Thai just for a holiday, but for serious students of Thai this is a great way to slowly assimilate an recognition of the characters of the Thai alphabet and to practice their reading skills.
