just as good as the previous ones,
This review is from: Thai for Advanced Readers. Book (Paperback)
I have just received this book and my aim was to perfect my knowledge about thai language. I started to learn thai because of my wife who is thai, and wanted to improve myself gradually. So I had looked through the available items on the market and after a thorough research I had found this author and her books. I had trustingly started to turn the pages of the beginner one. As i had dived into it, I felt this is the book what I needed to use. It was so catching, and spent more and more times with it. I was surprised how quickly I caught up. After I finished the beginner, i was able to write thai, had a word-power of over 1000 words, I understood the basic of the language, and my wife said how much good I was. Then I had purchased the intermediate, went through in a few months, and it had improved me more. This third level, the advanced, is as good as the first two. It gives u more written thai, more word to memorize. As you finished the first 2 books, your knowledge in the grammar should be excellent and this book gives you the chance to learn the writing and reading. This series of books are built up with consistency, reasonableness. I have seen various phonetic transcription, some of them are a bit misleading, but this author use the most logical phonetic transcription. These books somehow must be good books that I could learn the thai language despite I am not a native English speaker. So I can warmly recommend this book, many thanks for the author.
