"Pimsleur programs provide plenty of positive reinforcement that will keep learners on track, and we found that Pimsleur gave us more proficiency and confidence in speaking the new language than any of the other language programs we reviewed." (AudioFile magazine)
This is great for leaning thai. I thoroughly enjoy the lessons. However there are a few things that they will say different in Bangkok that the locals will correct you on but Al least you will understand enough to BE corrected lol
There are a few errors on this one where they are not clear on whether you should be saying the male or female parts.
Also there are words that are not clear so sometime I need to get clarification from the locals.q
Apart from those things, if you are an auditory learner this is excellent.
"you can really learn to speak thai!"
Last year was 2 weeks in Thailand. I thought Thai was impossible to grasp. I've learned maybe 10 words. This year 3 months before visiting Thailand i started listening to lessons units 1 to 20. I was able to communicate on very basic level even with some native thais who didn't understand english at all. Next year i'll take lessons 20 to 40:) Also after taking 3 months lessons i was able to learn much more new words in Thailand than first time. Your ears get used to Thai language melody.
