Routledge "Colloquial Thai" (free audio)


Recommended Posts

Is available here. The recordings seem about right for the level (eg clear, not too fast,  + tone practice & extra conversations for listening.) Separate recordings of the vocab lists would be useful though.

 

Details of the book here (+ there may be scans on the interwebz). Based on the reviews, the book's pretty good for 'survival thai', but has the drawback of a funky transliteration system and no thai text for the dialogs. (This also makes it difficult to remedy the lack of vocab lists using text to speech.)

I listened to 1 and then 25 to see how complicated it was and think that I could manage to write out the dialogue. It might make a good topic here. I am a shamed of my spelling but don't want to waste time looking up spelling (ไม่สนุข) so corrections will help me too.  
Here is the first dialogue.

Let's hope it catches on 🙂

Actually, there are Thai script versions of about 10 of the dialogues in the book, so there's an easy way for you to check your spelling etc for those.

I find that Thai friends don't bother too much with spelling. I make sure I get it right when I have to. 
The words which I was not sure about in that dialogue were อาหาร อร่อย I can't remember if there were others and to look would be cheating I think.
