Re-learning Thai is interesting, it really is like riding a bicycle. I am remembering stuff I didn’t even remember I knew, but as soon as I speak the words just come out. I think with in a week or two I will start moving on to more advanced stuff.
First of all I finished the Pimsleur Thai method. All stuff I knew so it was hard. I was also able to finish 2 typing lessons on the Thai notes website so now I know all the home keys down well! I should be branching off into harder things, but for now its ok.
Next weekend is going to be all input so I plan to finish the intermediate Thai course and start listening to Colloquial Thai. I also plan on reading at least 2 Manii books. If I can get a third book in that would be great, but we will see. I also want to see if I can start listening to Thaipod101 podcasts.
Did you say you were going to make a video every week?
Yes I did and yes I made it. This is probably the first time I have talked for more than a few seconds at a time in Thai. I know I made several mistakes, but I don’t care. The important thing is that I am relearning Thai and getting myself back up to a more advanced level. I apologize that I recorded this video in my car, but it is the easiest place for me to do it.
So without further ado:
