Good news for Thai beginners currently living near Sukhumvit Road in Bangkok who do not know how to read and write Thai but who are interested in and want to start learning how to read and write Thai.
One of my regular contributors, a native Thai speaker, is looking for a few beginners to be her guinea pig students in a face-to-face foundational introduction to learning how to read and write Thai course.

A total of five morning group sessions [two sessions a week] are planned, with each session lasting at least fifty minutes (half of the time for learning how to write and the other half for learning how to read).
My contributor wishes to emphasize the fact that she is not a professionally trained teacher and that the main reason she is doing this is because she has been sharing her knowledge of Thai with people interested in learning the language for a number of years now and many of those who have enjoyed the interesting and humorous way that she has gone about so, have always asked her to share insights into learning how to read and write Thai. She thinks that it is now time that she does so and hence her wanting to test the waters so to speak this way.
She’s hoping that her observations and feedback from the students during these sessions will inform and prepare her for beginning to share with Thai beginners insights into learning how to read and write Thai.
I can personally vouch for her and I personally find her to be a wonderful and naturally gifted teacher though she stubbornly refuses to be called a teacher.
I think that this is a fantastic opportunity for Thai beginners currently living near Sukhumvit Road in Bangkok who want to learn how to read and write Thai.
