    Arrow Intensive Six-Day Read Thai Bootcamp Aug 21-26 Chiang Mai

    Learn to Read Thai in just six days.

    Rapid Read Thai Bootcamp

    August 21-26 (Mon-Sat, 8am-5pm)

    Location: Chiang Mai
    Cost: ฿42,000

    Connie Mudore has been in Thailand for five years and attended at least ten courses without success. Then she came to the Rapid Read Thai bootcamp.

    Watch what she says about the course on youtube:



    "I tried 10-12 courses, but they were all way too much, not properly paced... I forgot everything except for some basic vocabulary... I did see the Rapid course five years ago, it seemed interesting but it was too expensive (but I've spent far more trying to learn Thai than if I had just started with the Rapid Method)... After six days, I can now read Thai and I know that I can learn Thai... I was even able to have a simple conversation with an Uber driver (understanding 50%)... The catchy Thai songs are funny, sexual and a wonderful insight into Thai culture, I think I can now participate in the conversations and understand the jokes... For the first time, after my many attempts, I feel that I'm not a traveler in the Thai language, not just a tourist... I recommend this course. Just do it. Stop wasting your time with other approaches that aren't as much fun and, frankly. don't work."

    Learn Thai for busy (lazy) people: Bootcamp in Chiang Mai (Nov 20-25)

    ทราย "sigh..." (said in a boring tone) is "sand"

    Rapid Read Thai
    Bootcamp


    November 20-25 (Mon-Sat, 8am-5pm)

    Location: Chiang Mai
    Cost: ฿42,000

    The minimalist, drip-feed approach to learning Thai for busy/lazy people who aren't any good at languages.

    The Rapid Method is for you if you've tried and failed to learn Thai by studying the conventional way. Or if you're busy and don't have the time or inclination to spend arduous hours studying in a classroom.

    Speaking Thai is about developing a muscle skill, it's not a 'linguistic' endeavor. Learning vocabulary is quick 'n easy if you use mnemonics and stories and mental images. And the best way to understand what people are saying is to listen to conversational texts read out loud repeatedly, slowly and clearly.

    But the first step is to learn to read Thai so that 1) you know exactly how to pronounce the words correctly and 2) you can continuously pick up Thai effortlessly from your environment.

    Then it's just a matter of "little-but-often", 10-15 minutes each day - a few minutes each day on your smartphone looking at electronic 'spaced-repetition' flashcards with mnemonics and a little time spent practicing reading songs or stories out loud.

    That's all there is to it.

    It's like growing a vine... it happens gradually, imperceptibly, but within a year or so, you're speaking and understanding Thai... actually, better and more quickly than by attending hundreds of hours of conventional classes!

    Sign up for the free trial to learn to recognize and sound out hundreds of simple Thai words within a few hours. If it works for you then buy the self-study online course (฿14,000), or kick-start the process by joining me at the next intensive six-day bootcamp.

    If you start with the self-study course and then decide to come to a workshop later then it's just the difference to pay.

    haha, no it's definitely one of us, complete with man-boobs and a gut. It's hard to say whether the girl is a ladyboy or a genuine woman... but you'll find out when you see all the other sighs in the sequence (there are at least 7 sighs you need to know in Thai)

    You are so funny! One doesn't need to prove competence to run your own company. However, I did try several times to partner with a Thai language school by training some of their bilingual Thai teachers to present my course. They sort of got the general idea in principle but they all floundered at the high level of fluency & detail in English and Western language, culture & humor involved. They politely declined.

    So what I do now is to kickstart the process by running a six-day bootcamp myself (for those who are too busy/lazy to work through the course by themselves online) and then hand over to a suitable Thai tutor who will follow the conversation-through-reading programs. I don't take any fee or commissions from the tutors; and I provide the relevant instructions on the strategy to follow for free.

    I seem to remember one of the aide-memoire you use has a cartoon of a Thai character pissing against a wall and going 'aah'!

    Thais take the Thai script kind of seriously (royal connections and all that), so this doesn't surprise me.
