Consisting of 4 books and 2 apps, it is the perfect system for helping you learn Thai. Even if you know nothing about the Thai language, our system has got it all and it will help you go from absolute beginner through to learning how to speak, read, and write Thai.
Russ, my husband, and I created our own system for helping English speakers to learn Thai: Quest (Quick, Easy, Simple Thai)
When he was first learning Thai, he struggled with all the different transliteration systems, that there was no consistent approach, and that it was, in his own words, "all over the place".
Building on his army experiences of KISS: Keep It Simple Soldier! he devised our own method of learning Thai. We called it Quest because learning a new language is an adventure, is something you specifically have to work at, and with a goal in mind.
Volume 1 of our 5 book series (volume 5 is coming soon) is called Learning Thai, Your Great Adventure, and is the first step on your own particular Quest.
Given their are 12 different transliteration systems in use in Thailand, it's not that we didn't want to add an unlucky 13th, rather we asked permission from Paiboon to use their system. They happily agreed and that, together with our own colour-coded method, mnemonics, etc., are extremely useful in getting you over the initial hurdles and rapidly onto learning Thai.
As Michael Dileo said:
"I'd like to give you kudos for your well though out system for learning Thai. I purchased the hardcopy of the first book in the Quest program, and I like how you "decode" the inter-mechanics of the Thai language.
I'm a self-proclaimed polyglot in training, and I've learned several languages via different systems. I have to say that your method is top-notch."
