Comments about Thai Phase 1, Unit 11-15:
I downloaded this program to prepare for a few weeks volunteering to teach English in Thailand. It was great to listen to in the car, I think it was a great way to learn and I picked it up quickly. I liked being able to download 5 lessons at a time. It made learning Thai very affordable.
However, I got through lesson 12 and never learned the phrases, "How are you?" And "What is your name?" which are usually the first phrases you learn in a language class.
It is more geared to someone doing business in Thailand, not someone doing volunteer work or traveling as a tourist. It also seemed to be missing some key directional phrases. I was lost when I got in a cab with a driver who didn't understand English (and most do not in Bangkok.)
The man in the recordings said things a little different than the woman, he seemed to get the "r's" and "l's" mixed up which was a bit confusing.
