The self-study interactive Rapid Read Thai onine course is all you need to learn to read Thai.
However, some people prefer the personal touch - but don't have the time or the money or live too far away to attend a live workshop.
I made this video workshop-in-a-box especially for you.
The 100-odd video mini lessons in the series is your personal companion (me!) while you work through the Rapid Read Thai online course. I provide explanations and cover details and nuances that were too cumbersome to include in the self-study online course. Basically, we work through the course together - just like in a workshop. It's the next best thing to having your own personal trainer... and maybe even better because you can listen to me explaining the concepts at any time of day or night, and as many times as you need to understand - or review - the material.
The videos will be delivered to you as private YouTube links - one lesson each day. The first few foundation lessons are around 10-20 minutes in length, but thereafter they are no more than 10 minutes each.
Watch the foundation lessons for free and only when you can see for yourself how effective (and effortless) they are, then come back and sign up for either the cheaper self-study course or the full Video Workshop Package.
Here is the lesson on how to figure out the tones in Thai
Lesson 2½ - How to read Thai Tones, the Rapid way (22 mins ). You might want to watch this quickly without trying too hard to understand it, then watch lessons 3 and maybe 4 and 5… and then come back and watch this again… and then watch lessons 3-5 again (but this time see if you can figure out what the tones are). I’m not sure of the best sequence, so I would be grateful for your feedback and suggestions on what works best for you.
