    Share pick-up Thai podcast lessons

    Most people learning Thai will have heard of the pick-up Thai site but the price of their podcasts are paaeng maak - over 10,000 baht if you want them all. So I was wondering if anyone who had bought some podcasts wants to sell them to me at a discount. Or if anyone is interested in splitting the cost of buying from their website.

    I can't post links but you can just google 'pick up thai' and it's the first result.

    They have free samples. If a few of us got together and bought the complete package it would come down to a reasonable price.

    There not too bad for upper beginner / intermediate. They tend to teach in a colloquial way.
    Brexit, if you can read thai a bit aakanee.com has a free resource site that I thought was very good. You can download the lessons, and each has a story, an mp3 for listening comprehension, and a transcript and or vocabulary list. Lots of lessons on there,but as I said you will need to read thai, or have a good dictionary.

    Sorry can't supply a link as I havn't yet worked it out on this tablet...

    Www.aakanee.com

    Oops...

    I've been using that aakanee site for a while and it's great. I'm about half way through even though I can't really read Thai. I just copy and paste the transcript into the thai2english or thai-language websites and they provide an automatic transliteration. But I'd like to supplement it with the more colloquial dialogues of pickupthai. At the rip-off prices they're asking though it would be cheaper to sign up at a language school.

    I just watched one of her videos on Youtube. Useful information even if the presentation could be tightened up somewhat.

    Hi Brexit, don't know if you are still interested in buying the Pick Up Thai podcast. If you want, I can split the cost with you in buying the two packages. I think it is now on sale, with the total price at 198 USD for the complete of Sweet Green and Spicy Red courses.

    Isn't this a bit like photocopying a book so your friend can have a copy, or burning a cd for your mate? It's IP for sale.
    Having made that minor chastisement, getting real, I guess the owner of the IP would be happy to have one sale, even if two people benefited. Just a guess. One sale is better than none.
