Thai Lessons

As a language, Thai or Central Thai is a language with many variations and dialects making it a complex linguistic history. There are at least 40 variations of Thai spoken in the area, but those are minor variations of Central Thai, the official language spoken in Thailand.

Thai is a tonal language, making definitions of words dependent on inflection and volume, so it comes across as an emotional language when spoken.

Suppose you’ve ever wondered about learning Thai or want to travel throughout Southeast Asia.

In that case, you’ll find that learning Thai will give you the advantage of enjoying the area's culture, history, and cuisine.

Is Thai difficult to learn?


Like most languages, Thai will take some time to learn and grasp the fundamentals, but your growth will skyrocket once that occurs. To learn Thai efficiently, find a Thai teacher that can guide you and instruct you on the proper pronunciation and grammar to accelerate your learning. The benefit of TakeLessons is that we will customize the course to meet your specific needs in learning and teach you how to master the language in short order.

How fast can I learn Thai?


To learn conversational Thai quickly would ideally include being immersed in the language. Immersion is the process of being surrounded by a language where you have to rely on that language to communicate without the aid of your native language. If that is not a possibility, then finding a native speaker to help you learn the vocabulary, intonation, and characters needed to be functional in the language is your best option to learn Thai fast.
