New Year's Resolution

Postby jariya76 » Wed Dec 22, 2010 12:27 pm

Okay everyone - need cheerleaders! My NYR for 2011 is to learn the Thai keyboard. I've resisted for 35 years. That's a lot of heel digging. Please offer me what you think is the best, most "older user"-friendly method. I expect to be held accountable for this resolution and promise to be equally supportive to any others wishing to make a Thai language promise to themselves.

Thanks! Julie

Yes, I do have a suggestion: Do not buy a Thai keyboard to learn to type Thai. [Note: I realize that in the U.S. there are scant Thai keyboards to be found; this is more of a suggestion for learners in Thailand.]

Having a keyboard to look up letters on is likely to become a crutch preventing full development of touch-typing skills. I suggest learning from the several free, on-line typing tutor resources.

Best of luck in your endeavors.
