What is Your Attitude to Learning Thai?

Recommended Posts

It depends where you live. If you live in a village with very few english speakers then it is probably a good idea. If you live in phuket, pattaya, bangkok etc where alot of people speak english it is not that important. It is still useful to know some basics

If you live in a village no point in learning central Thai as they'll all be speaking some other language, probably Laos or some local variation of it.

I went to school and learned central Thai, everyone around me converses in Lao ....... mai aroy = bor sep, chan rak tur = bun hat too-wer, mai pen rai = bor bin yang. Wasted 2 years of my time.

Maybe it's just me, but central Thai and Isaan Lao are kissing cousins.

If you can read and write Thai, then Lao becomes easier, since when written, it's simply a transliteration of Isaan Lao in Thai script so you get to hear the sound and tones
