Many students ask me how to get started with Thai as a beginner. The key to start effectively is to set your goal clearly and to build a foundation with a well-structured path to learn.

Set your goals

As a beginner, you should not aim to become fluent but to be able to understand and be understood in daily conversation. If you want to be able to live and get around with ease in Thailand.

Build a foundation

It’s important to build a foundation in a systematic way. Place knowledge pieces in the right place to understand how the language works. Sentence structure and syntax are the keys. (Learn to speak in a sentence, not just word)

Follow a well-structured path

Many students got lost in overloaded content on Youtube and some got stuck and cannot make further progress. Hence, it’s crucial to have a well-structured program that guides you just step by step to reach your goal.
