Are you a Thai language student looking for the latest Thai idioms and slang? A tourist looking for a Thai language book that's not filled with the same old stuff? An English teacher struggling to understand your Thai students? An expat professional wanting to communicate with Thailand's young generation? If the answer is yes, then Learn Thai Language: Generation Next is the book for you. More than just giving you new vocabulary, this book provides hundreds of sample sentences to advance your skills in listening, talking, and reading the colloquial language of Thailand. This fun and useful bi-lingual book is for all students of the Thai language who wish to better understand and communicate with Thailand's young generation. Not a dry textbook or simple dictionary of terms, this is one Thai language book that you will enjoy reading and using. The book is organized to make it easy for you to navigate. The Thai vocabulary pages are arranged alphabetically by their transliteration (phonetic spelling). Each Thai entry is followed by an English definition and two English words or phrases that match the Thai. This vocabulary is used in the comic and in the sample sentence below the definition. The Thai translation of the English sample sentence is followed by its transliteration and by a literal word-for-word translation, so that students can better understand the vocabulary used and how the sentence is organized. At the bottom of each page is a transliteration of the Thai used in the comic, followed again by its literal translation. An English word index is included in the back of the book, which can help you locate matching Thai entries. Learn Thai Language: Generation Next is also an excellent resource for Thais who want to learn the colloquial language of native English speakers. English language notes included.show more
