I need to HEAR Thai phrases and their English meaning so I can recognize and replicate when I'm visiting Thailand. I would happy speaking at the level of a 6 year old! Reading the language can come later. I'm presently interested only in the audio/spoken components. I am illiterate in Thai. I intend to spend winters (6 months!) yearly there. I need to be able to communicate basics. I need a teacher who speaks VERY CLEARLY, and can explain the way the sounds are articulated. Did I mention I don't hear well? [;>) I'm a retired Canadian college math professor. I no longer enjoy Canadian winters so I'm heading someplace warm. After 3 trips to SE Asia, I've opted to spend my time in Thailand. So my special TEACHER, where are you?? Sincerely, Garry p.s. I am in Daylight Saving MT zone, so I'm an hour ahead of non-daylight savings times.
