This audiobook will take you through the basics of Thai with Basic Bootcamp, All About, and Pronunciation lessons.
The five Basic Bootcamp lessons each center on a practical, real-life conversation. At the beginning of the lesson, we'll introduce the background of the conversation. Then, you'll hear the conversation two times: one time at natural native speed, and one time with English translation. After the conversation, you'll learn carefully selected vocabulary and key grammar concepts. Next, you'll hear the conversation one time at natural native speed. Finally, practice what you have learned with the review track. In the review track, a native speaker will say a word or phrase from the dialogue, wait three seconds, and then give you the English translation. Say the word aloud during the pause. Halfway through the review track, the order will be reversed. The English translation will be provided first, followed by a three-second pause, and then the word or phrase from the dialogue. Repeat the words and phrases you hear in the review track aloud to practice pronunciation and reinforce what you have learned.
In the 15 All About lessons, you’ll learn all about Thai and Thailand. Our native teachers and language experts will explain everything you need to know to get started in Thai, including how to understand the writing system, grammar, pronunciation, cultural background, tradition, society, and more - all in a fun and educational format!
The five Pronunciation lessons take you step-by-step through the most basic skill in any language: how to pronounce words and sentences like a native speaker. You’ll go from basic concepts to advanced tips and will soon sound like you’ve been speaking Thai your entire life.

Very Basic Introduction to Thai and Thailand

This is an extremely basic intro to Thai. If you know anything about the Thai language or Thailand, 90% of this will be 'no-duh' info. I still picked up a few new things. Only 10 out of the 25 lessons are really focused on language, and they don't offer quite enough repetition for my liking.

I liked the dynamics of the two narrators, an American man and a Thai woman. They joke, share fun facts about Thailand, and teach some new things. There were some good facts about colloquial Thai that I hadn't heard elsewhere. And since I've never been to Thailand, I learned some things about the culture too.

I can't comment on the written material because I was driving/running the whole time I listened to it and I haven't gotten around to looking at the PDF.

:: This would be a great audiobook if you were going to Thailand for the first time and wanted to get excited for your trip. You'll learn a few words and phrases, but not anything substantial. ::

If you were going to Thailand and wanted to learn some useful sentences and phrases, I highly recommend this company's "Learn Thai - Survival Phrases" part 1 & 2. There are some great phrases and really helpful advice for someone traveling in Thailand.

If you're serious about learning Thai pick up the Pimsleur's Thai lessons 1-30 and listen to all 15 hours twice, doing the exercises out loud. This will give you a great spoken foundation and it has built in reviews. It's perfect if want to learn Thai while commuting or running and don't have time for written material. Once you're done with that go to learnthai podcast and sign up for their premium subscription. I'm finishing Pimsleur and starting learnthaipodcast and they're both great.

Sorry for being so long winded!
