Introduction

This website is a personal collection of tools and resources I made whilst learning to read, write and type Thai. I've decided to make them available on the web in the hope that they might help someone else to become fluent in this challenging language.

Typing Thai

This is a collection of programs to help learning to type in Thai. They are

Thai Typing Trainer
The Thai Typing Trainer is really three programs in one. These are:
  • a 50 lesson tutor going from the first few keystrokes to complete coverage of the The keyboard.
  • a practice program with 8 passages of Thai to type to help improve your speed. It provides feedback on the number of errors made and words per minutes typed
  • a practice program similar to the previous one, but this one lets you paste your own text for practice
Thai Steady Typer
A program to help you to practise typing at a steady pace - one of the keys to building up typing speed.
Thai Typing Game
Type the words as they fall from the sky and before they hit the ground. 50 levels of increasing difficulty.

Dictionaries

There are two dictionaries. The main one is a Thai-English/English-Thai Dictionary which allows you to look up individual words or whole paragraphs (bulk lookup). Hover over any word and see a brief definition; click on any word and see its full definition. Words can also be saved in your own private word list. You can also browse the dictionary in alphabetic order.

The second dictionary is a Thai Classifier Dictionary (Thai script only) which allows you to look up the classifier(s) for a given noun, or the nouns associated with a given classifier. You can also browse the dictionary alphabetically by both noun and classifier.

Flashcards

A Flashcard Game with Thai and English words in various categories and at various levels of difficulty. Includes an IPA text option for the Thai words. Currently the number of decks of cards is fairly limited, but I hope to add more as time permits. You can also create your own packs of cards with the Flashcard Editor

Tools

A collection of miscellaneous tools I have developed and use. Currently only my IPA Typing Tool and Thai Typing Tool are available (for people who don't want to learn how to type Thai but want an easy way of entering Thai text).

Finally, if you find any problems with the website, or would like to make any suggestions, please contact me via the Feedback link.
