You're obviously not as clever as a great many people but there's still no reason to worry about finding a copy of Manee.

Why do you insist on posting false information? Phonics is taught in UK primary schools.

I was taught by the use of phonics. In the Sixties the country lost its way and part of the Labour Party lunacy was to get rid of phonics. There was a gap of nearly forty years before they realised the mistake and reverted to using it. It is used today, thanks be to God.

You could be taking some creative license with your actual ability to read thai (as in comprehend what you're reading) versus just sounding out the characters one by one.

Learning to read thai is NOTHING more than memorizing many, many MANY thai words so when you see them there is a meaning thai'd err tied to it. It takes time and more time to be able to read with a high degree of comprehension.

I disliked the Manee Manaa books because of the high degree of brain-washing and cultural indoctrination found in them. That and the vocab is almost worthless in today's day and age.

Because you're the only person who has ever learned Thai, right Todz? I work as a translator for one of the main Thai banks. My reading in Thai is just fine.

No wonder you're such a pr*ck. That job must suck the will to live right outta you.

Like I said 70+ million people speak, read and understand Central thai (60% of them as their second language), this leads me to believe that ANY foreigner who wants to can as well.

strange, even bangkok banks head office in bangkok have no foreign employees, so are your duties in an official capacity, or do you just help the old falang next to you in the queue fill out the withdrawal form?

It's all research on the Thai economy so not exactly my area but since I live here, it's still mid-level interesting.

I agree. If you're motivated it doesn't take long to remember which consonants belong to which group, learn the vowels and you're away!
As mentioned, start reading kids' books, I'd recommend you then write down all the new vocab you come across in empty notebooks- one book each for nouns, verbs, adjectives and adverbs, and one for idioms! 4 in all.
Then when you come across a word you've already written down but didn't remember, write that word on a card approx one inch by one inch. There's a good chance it's a common word On one side write the word in English, on the other write the Thai word. Keep the cards together with an elastic band, put them in your top pocket, then when you have some moments spare, pull them out and look only at the word in English and try to remember the Thai. When you're sure you've remembered it, put the card away for safe-keeping, you've cracked that word!
