Product Description

For Intermediate Learners Stephen Saad has spent over ten years working, living and traveling in Thailand. He never found a book that is neither a beginner’s basic book nor a weighty academic tome but a book that explains the Thai you hear every day in Thailand. So he wrote one! A book that is aimed at those foreigners who can already speak Thai to a basic level but struggle to form longer sentences or speak naturally using everyday Thai as they do in English. '100 Thai words that make you sound Thai' gives the learner the key connecting words, time context words, comparison words, exclamations and other words that are key to forming whole sentences and describing thoughts and situations beyond basic level. Crucially, this book delivers all of this in a non-stuffy way with plenty of tips and insight as if Steve is talking to you and sharing what he has learnt over the years, rather than giving you a course in Thai grammar. Finally, Steve has used a totally new concept involving assigning indicator icons and a scale of 1 to 5 to words to indicate the feel of the word and therefore, the appropriate context in which it should be used. For example, many words in Thai are used more by women than men and while men using these words is not against any rule whatsoever, they can sound a little strange doing so. The 'female' indicator icon highlights these words and the rating between 1 to 5 gives some indication of how feminine the word is. No other book gives learners of Thai this type of insight into the Thai language. • Learn the phrases that are key to expressing yourself in everyday situations; not basic nouns and verbs you already know but the other words you need to construct sentences and sound credible in Thai. • Gain insight into words through tips and indicator icons – a totally new and unique tool to impart insight into Thai words; learn the words with 'Thai-ness' to instantly impress. • Extensive advice on not just what to learn but how to learn Thai!
