Seven exercises types:
Select the picture for the audio - In this exercise, you will hear a sentence and you will be presented with two images. For example, the sentence may be something like “The man with brown hair is eating an orange.” You will then have to select the picture that best represents the sentence. When the exercises are first introduced, you are given the correct answer. This exercise helps you directly associate the new vocabulary to visual imagery rather than to an English translation.
Audio comprehension - In these exercises, you will hear a passage narrated such as “John went to meet his girlfriend at the restaurant.” You will then be asked a question about this sentence such as “Who did John go to meet at the restaurant?” You must then answer by saying “John went to meet his girlfriend.” The situation, question, and answer are all in Thai. This is a great way to practice both your comprehension and your speaking skills. Again, as with every exercise type, the meaning and literal translations for all parts of the exercise are provided in the notes section of the exercise.
Picture comprehension - In these exercises, you will be presented with a picture and you will be asked a question about the picture. The question is asked in Thai. For example, there may be a picture of a man surfing and you will be asked. “What is the man doing?” You must respond to this question in Thai by saying “He is surfing.” These exercises provide you with another way to practice both your speaking and comprehension skills at the same time. On top of this, you are also encouraged to associate the language with imagery rather than translations, which helps you to develop the ability to think in Thai.
Picture with audio - In these exercises, you will be presented with a picture along with an audio that describes something in the picture. For example, the picture may be of a man talking on the phone. The audio/text will say “The man is talking on the phone.” All you have to do is determine what the audio is saying with the aid of the image. These exercises are quick to complete and give you practice listening to Thai and associating the Thai vocabulary with visual imagery rather than to English translations. You are given both the meaning and word-for-word translations in the notes section.
Audio translation – Foreign to native - In this exercise type, you will listen to an audio, then read a sentence in Thai, and then you must determine the English translation for that sentence in your head. We do not like to focus on having students constantly translate in their head that is why the majority of exercises use pictures. Having said that, it can still be helpful to take a multifaceted approach when learning in order to have the brain work with the language in as many ways as possible.
Story Exercises - In these exercises, you will hear part of a Thai story being read aloud; the story is also presented with a picture that describes what is happening in the story. These are real Thai stories. They start off very simply and increase in complexity as you progress. You will find that these stories are enjoyable and are a great way to build your vocabulary. In some situations, we have simplified the stories to include conversational language rather than formal written language. As with all the other exercises, these exercises include both the meaning and a literal translation.
Movie lessons - The program includes over 730 of these exercises. They are found at the end of the program because they teach vocabulary that is more advanced. In these exercises, you will work your way through a Thai movie called The Roommate. In these exercises, you see an image of a scene from the movie and you will hear one sentence taken from the movie. The sentence is also included in written form. You will be given both the meaning and the literal translation of the sentence. Your job in this exercise is to listen to the audio and understand the Thai sentence. We also include explanations of both sentence patterns and vocabulary in these exercises.
The great thing about these exercises is that they expose you to real Thai as it is spoken among native speakers. You will find that the day-to-day spoken Thai is full of slang and, in these lessons, you will learn a large number of the common slang words that are used on the streets of Thailand.
The movie used in these exercises is really quite enjoyable and, once you finish these exercises, you will be able to watch the whole movie and understand it all.
