How to practice Thai reading?

Once you completed the Ultimate Thai Reading course or already knew how to read basic Thai, you can work on your fluency and speed of reading. 

Expand vocabulary

Keep learning new Thai words that are related to your daily usage including your daily routine, work environment, traveling, buying clothes, family, hobby, etc. 

Repeat to remember

Repetition is one of the keys to success in becoming fluent in reading. In the reading exercise, Kru Smuk adds the words you’ve learned in different content so you can repeat and review the words again and again. Believe me, it will be easier and easier to read each time.

Speed up your Thai

We also provide reading exercise videos with audios that help you practice recognizing Thai words you learn in each story. This technique will help you recognize and read words faster. This could also be a great tool for shadowing Thai pronunciation as well.

Improve reading comprehension

First, read a story yourself. It will be a bit challenging as there are a couple of words you might not yet know. Try to understand the story from the given context. Then you can play a video lesson of Kru Smuk to go through the whole story with explanation, reading tips, and translation.
