PickupThai Podcast & Anki…
To celebrate WLT’s 2017 giveaway, this year Yuki and Miki from PickupThai Podcast created Anki files (complete with audio) to go with their free courses. And I can tell you, it was soooo tempting to release all files early but I’m glad they waited! Even if I had to wait too 🙂
If you are looking a good way to learn Thai online, check out ThaiPod101. Although their courses are not free, they are cheap, effective, and can quickly teach you conversational Thai. All ExpatDen readers get a 25% discount using this link.

For the free courses (shown below) you are given a choice of Anki files using Thai script or transliteration. The flashcards run you through the vocabulary introduced in each lesson.
Sucking files into Anki’s desktop software is easy (just double-click and follow the instructions). But as getting the files into your smartphone (Android or iOS) is more complicated, here’s their online help: Importing Anki Files.
If you are unfamiliar with PickupThai’s courses, read my Review: PickupThai Podcast by Yuki and Miki. And while you are here, why not find out about Yuki’s latest project, Tamago: PickUpThai’s E-Picture Book for Learning Thai.
An interesting tidbit not mentioned in my review: When preparing the course files for a swot session (more on that later), I collated the vocabulary and came up with a count.
Impressive (and represents quite a decent chunk of vocab to study).
