I'm currently in the process of redesigning this site, primarily to make parts of it work better on mobile devices.
This is probably going to take me many weeks.
One side effect of the changes I'm making is that parts of the site will no longer work on older browsers. If you experience problems,
do consider updating your browser to the latest version.
Finally, if you have any problems or suggestions, please message me through "Feedback" (under "Site", above). Hearing from you is
Update Feb. 2021
I've rewritten the Thai Typing Trainer to take advantages of changes in browser technology, and added two more lessons.
The plan is to rewrite all three parts of the existing Thai Typing Trainers, then retire the old app.
The Speed Test is experimental. I'm not aware of any other speed test for Thai that doesn't use spaces between words. Not using spaces makes the logic much
more challenging. I'm not sure if I've got it working well or not for "real world" typists.
Update Mar. 2021
I've written a new application for practising typing Thai. That's (pretty obviously) Typing Practice (above). It lets you use sample text or to copy and paste your own text.
I've removed the old Thai Typing Trainers from the menu,
Update May 2021
but they will continue to be available here for a little while, just
in case there are problems with the newer applications.
There's a new app., "Reading Assistant". If you paste some Thai text it will separate it into words. If you then click on those words it will show an English definition of
that word (where available). It's intended for learners who can already read a fair bit of Thai, but may get tripped up on the occasional word or two. This app. should work on both desktop PCs and tablets.
There's more information on the application's "Help" page.
Update(2) May 2021
I've changed the source of the audio files for the FreeThai game. It should now be clearer.
Update(3) May 2021
There's a new Text to speech app. which allows you to paste a passage of Thai text and then have your browser read it to you. You can use it for reading practice by
blurring the text, then clicking on individual phrases to play them, then double clicking on the phrase to unblur it.
p.s. Some notes for tablet users:
- The "Typing Thai" and "Dictionaries" applications are not usable on tablets. Don't even bother trying. Everything else should be sort of OK. (Not great, just OK-ish.)
