How to Learn to Speak Thai as a Beginner
Make a specific plan
You may already know what is your
goal to learn Thai. However,
the goal without a plan is just a wish.
The daily, monthly, and yearly plan will help you keep on track and stay motivate.
Find a right teacher
For beginner stage, learning with a teacher will save your time and help you learn Thai fast. A good teacher knows what is the important concepts and essential skills for learning new languages.
Memorise useful words
Focus on memorizing a group of useful words and phrases. The more Thai words you know, the easy speaking Thai you can. You need to know only 300 most common Thai words to make a basic conversation.
Familiar with Thai tone
Thai language is a tonal language. A different tone means a different meaning. It may be hard to foreigners to say tonal words correctly. However, Listening to Thai songs or podcasts can help you familiar with the tone easily.
The best way to learn Thai is to start speaking from the beginning. You do not need to wait until you know a lot of words and phrases. The real conversations will help you train your brain to think in Thai and learn new vocabulary.
You do not need to learn to read Thai in order to speak Thai, especially if you want to learn Thai for traveling. However, learning Thai reading can help you improve your pronunciation. Also, it would be great if you can read everything in Thai!

We had another great lesson! I began learning Thai prior to finding Kruu Cherry, but so many things just didn’t make sense to me. Kruu Cherry is helping me make sense of it all. She is is prepared, pleasant to talk to, and adapts the lessons easily. Thank you again, Kruu Cherry. 🙂
Fun as always! I always have a great time with
Kruu Cherry! Today we worked on pronunciation
and tones, my black beast XD But she’s patient
and well-prepared as always, with tons of material
for learning and practicing. If you think of learning Thai, even if you are beginners, Kruu Cherry is your teacher!
