Learn to read and write the Thai alphabet the easy way with this app. It is especially helpful for people learning the Thai language at beginner or intermediate level.
All schemes for writing Thai words in English letters are a compromise and can only be approximate. To help with understanding the language it is far better if you are able to learn to read the letters of new words in the original Thai.
Learning the Thai alphabet is also helpful when travelling around Thailand for business or pleasure. With a little practice you should be able to read simple words like road signs, bus destinations, restaurant menus and the like.
Learning Thai numbers as well might even save you a little money when shopping in Thailand. Sometimes the lowest prices are only written in Thai.
The best way to learn a new alphabet is to practice writing it. Using your hands as well as your eyes will help you to recall the shape of each letter more quickly.
The app includes a set of exercises for the letters, numbers and tone marks used in written Thai. There's also an area to practice writing the letters and numbers yourself. Your writing is saved on your iPad so that you can close the program and return to it later where you left off.
Audio samples of each of the letters and numbers are included to help with learning the correct pronunciation.
Includes "Test Yourself" feature to test how well you can recall the letters and numbers.
