It's that time of year for new-year resolutions and mine is, yet again, the Thai language.
Having failed once, I'm hoping to make this a more sustained effort.
I've tried mimicking the words in an attempt to build a vocabulary, but the tonal nature is, sadly a real block. This time round I'm planning on getting the consonants, vowels and tone rules under my belt so I have a better idea of the boundaries, so to speak.
Well, that's the plan!!!

I suggest the following 7 volume set of practice exercises to use with a native Thai speaker:

หัดอ่านภาษาไทยแบบใหม่ [Learning to Read Thai the New Way] Volumes 1-7 by ไสว สุนทร [Suwai Suntorn], ISBN Volume 1: 974-90393-3-5, 50 baht; Volume 2, 974-90394-4-3, 50 baht; Volume 3, 974-90740-7-6, 60 baht; Volume 4, 974-93172-7-0, 100 baht; Volume 5, 978-974-623-778-9, 100 baht; Volume 6, 978-974-13-6198-4, 105 baht; Volume 7, 978-974-05-3290-3, 110 baht.

See for a review of this series.
