Even though I’ve spent more than five years learning Thai, I still like to brush up on my Thai language skills wherever possible. A great way to improve your Thai or to even begin to learn Thai is to use some of the best learning Thai language websites out there. If you’re trying to improve your Thai language skills, or want to start learning Thai for the first time, you can’t go wrong with these excellent websites. They’re free, they’re accessible 24 hours a day and the phenomenal Thai audio files will have you speaking like a native in no time.
Learning Thai.com – The most popular and best website for learning Thai is LearningThai.com. Started by a teacher and students at a Thai school about ten years ago, it now has thousands of pages dedicated to speaking, reading, writing and listening to Thai. The kids themselves record a lot of the audio files, so you learn Thai with a true Thai accent, the vocabulary resources are amazing, there’s just about any thing in Thai you could possibly ever need to learn about Thai grammar and it’s all designed perfectly, so fun to look at too. If you’re interested in learning Thai online, I cannot recommend this website enough. The kids and teachers have also put up some very beautiful photos of Thailand, Thai culture, Thai people, Thai food and lots more – so there’s lots of eye candy too.
Thai Language.com – Another excellent website for learning Thai online, Thai Language.com has some interesting lessons, a huge Thai online dictionary, over 15,000 audio files and a forum, where you can talk to other people also struggling with the Thai language. Recently, they’ve even uploaded a ton of fun photos. Suitable for Thai language learners from absolute beginners to more advanced, it also has no annoying ads to click on, so your Thai learning experience is just that – learning.
E Thai Music.com – When I’ve taught English in Thailand, one thing I’ve learned is that listening to music can have a huge impact on learning a language quickly. The same goes for Thai. Listening to Thai music can help with vocabulary and grammar and, at the same time, it’s a lot of fun. EThaiMusic.com has thousands of clickable links to some of the best Thai pop music out there, all free. Since I started listening to Thai music on EThaiMusic.com, I’ve become a huge Thai pop music fan. You might too!
Women Learn Thai.com – A relatively new website but one absolutely loaded with information about Thai language is Women Learn Thai.com. Actually, Women Learn Thai isn’t just for women, men are welcome too. It’s one of the prettiest Thai language websites as it’s gorgeously designed. It’s also run by a western woman who’s an expat living in Thailand, which means there’s a lot of information on there pertinent for westerners learning Thai as well as westerners living in Thailand.
There are hundreds of websites online for people to learn Thai, but these four are the best, not only because they provide boatloads of information, but they’re completely free too!
