If you want to learn spoken native Thai this is the course.
I ave been coming to Thailand for 10 years and now live in Chiang Mai for about half the time. I started to attempt Thai language by purchasing the usual phrase books - so so. I found that after a while my vocab improved but my syntax, intonation, pitch and pronunciation were poor and my ability to understand native Thai speakers almost nil. Next to Audio courses and iPhone apps - a little better but almost no understanding of syntax and grammar. After a 2 month course at Chiang Mai University with an excellent teacher I could communicate with non English speaking Thais. I then discovered Dr Pimsleur. Fabulous. For the first time I cane to grips with tone and pitch. My teacher at CMU used a similar method and had probably unwittingly stumbled upon the Pimsleur method . Fellow students who were language teachers said that her teaching techniques were archaic but she was a brilliant teacher - the problem was that she was only available for 3 hours a day during the course. Pimsleur is available on demand until you get it perfect. This is without doubt the best non face to face Thai language course available. I can now understand what my Thai friends are saying and I can converse with them and they can understand me. If you want to speak Thai this is it.
