"Teach Yourself Thai" is the course for anyone who wants to progress quickly from the basics to understanding, speaking and writing Thai with confidence. Although aimed at those with no previous knowledge, it is equally suitable for anyone wishing to brush up existing knowledge or refresh rusty language skills for a holiday or business trip. Key structures and vocabulary are introduced in 14 thematic units progressing from introducing yourself and dealing with everyday situations to making travel arrangements. The emphasis is on communication throughout with important language structures introduced through dialogues on the accompanying recording. The book will give you a solid introduction to the Thai writing system, so you can go on to extend your knowledge beyond the book and the recorded material will help you with the pronunciation of this tonal language. The new edition retains the tried-and-tested structure of the lessons but has been fully updated. New features of this book include an English-Thai vocabulary to go alongside the existing Thai-English vocabulary and a 'taking it further' section directing the reader to further sources of Thai - websites, books, etc. The language notes have been expanded, the exercises improved and more reading material in Thai script added. The page design has been improved and section headings given in English to make the course easier to use for the self-access learner. The accompanying recording has been increased to two accompanying cassettes or CDs amounting to approximately 150 minutes of listening material. The CDs and cassettes are available separately or in a pack with the book.
