  1. I think it’s one of the better courses to learn the Thai language in an easy way , and in my case , I speak little English, but I learn the English language as well.

  2. Michael A. makes a good point about this course going all the way through to advanced level and that is also what attracts me to it. I’m particularly impressed by the way it progresses naturally from beginner to advanced level.

    A lot of Thai courses out there jump unrealistically from one level to the next. For example, the beginner course might cover 300 words and very basic grammar, then the intermediate course covers some slightly more complex grammar and a further 500 words, but then the advanced course is impossibly difficult because the previous two courses don’t cover enough language to enable you to tackle more complex material. Learn Thai Podcast seems different. Beginner level seems to progress naturally to intermediate which then progresses naturally to advanced. Within each module the lessons also progress naturally, building up your language and skills.

    Another thing that attracts me is the inclusion of street Thai at the higher levels. At the moment I’m stuck in the intermediate plateau where most textbooks are too easy but I’m not really able to have a natural conversation with Thais. Most advanced courses focus on formal reading and there’s very little out there that really helps you develop your conversation skills. Some people might say ‘just get out there and speak’ which of course you also need to do, but in reality street Thai is something that has to be learned. There are colloquial words and phrases that you need to learn, and you need to practice listening to and understanding natural Thai as spoken by native speakers. Learn Thai Podcast seems to provide a lot of help in this area.

  3. @Chris, yes, I’ve read Todd’s review, but haven’t read the comments in a while. Thanks!

    Looking over this giveaway again and really excited about the material going all the way to advanced levels. So many courses are for beginners, so this is exciting!

  4. ผมเคยซื้อคอร์สนี้มาแล้ว ตอนแรกๆ ที่ผมได้เริ่มเรียนภาษาไทยอย่างจริงจัง แม้ว่าผมไม่ได้มีโอกาสเรียนมันให้จบ ผมรับรองได้ว่ามันเป็นคอร์สที่ดีและช่วยได้เยอะเลยทีเดียว ตอนนี้ผมกำลังเรียนภาษาจีนอยู่แต่ว่าจะกลับเมืองไทยเรวๆ นี้ และอยากจะมีโอกาสเรียนพวกบทเรียนระดับสูงๆ ที่ผมพลาดเรียนครั้งที่แล้ว
    จะคู้มเหนื่อยหรือเปล่า ผมพิมพ์ไม่ค่อยถนัด

    I previously purchased this course when I first started studying the Thai language seriously and although I didn’t have a chance to finish the course, I can attest to the quality of the course and how much of great help it was. I’m currently studying Mandarin Chinese, but will soon return to Thailand and would appreciate the opportunity to study the intermediate and advanced lessons within this course which I failed to take advantage of previously.

  5. Learning Thai has been on my bucket list. Winning a copy of Learn Thai Podcast program would also be a great motivator for this journey. Thanks for the chance.

  6. Wow! What an amazing resource! I’ve been looking for “Thai-only” learning tools. And as I just finished lessons with my tutor today (I’m getting ready to move to a different province), I would love to have something as amazing as this to continue my studies. I also took the CU-TFL last week in Bangkok, and it was definitely an eye opener to show me how far I still need to come in my Thai. Has anyone else taken the CU-TFL yet?

  7. Thanks for the chance to win a copy of Learn Thai Podcast! Most of the other giveaways have been geared towards beginners and I see this course goes all the way through advanced levels. So this is the only giveaway I’m trying for, but even if I don’t win I’ll most likely buy it around Christmas time anyway.

    And for Cat, change the contest end date from “June 3rd” to “July 3rd”. No wait, keep at as June 3rd and maybe less people will enter! 555

  8. I’ve read the reviews and this seems to be very helpful for a learner. I’ve been studying from various free resources (such as memrise) for quite a while, yet when I went to Thailand few weeks ago… I realized that I am still a beginner. I understand basic stuff, but that’s it. That was a bit disappointing feeling, but well, now I am more motivated to try harder and find new ways of learning. For example, now instead of memorizing words, I focus more on analyzing sentences.
    Anyway, the path to fluency is long and winding, let’s keep it up everyone. 🙂

  9. The course material is hudge. I bought it one but the time to use it was limited to one year, which was not sufficient to study everything. Now you have 5 years to finish your studies which should definitly be enough. The user interface has been redesigned and is now very user friendly. A great course for serious learners.

  10. I’m pretty happy to see this – I’ve been curious about this course for a while and am getting to the point where I’d like to update my listening materials. In the meantime I’ll go check out the free lessons!
