  • Thai Tones

    I think that this is the best video on YouTube for hearing the Thai tones. The young woman has a clean voice and does not mumble.





    I must have watched this video a hundred times as I have tried to ram the rules of the Thai tones into my thick head. It takes an unconventional approach to teaching but it is effective and, at last, I know the rules.

    Listening to Thai is difficult at times because of the tones used.

    Horse – Ma
    Dog – Ma

    I think there are two other definitions (besides dog and horse) for “ma”.

      It appears difficult when written in roman alphabet which is non tonal. Those ticks for rising / falling ^ low \ high etc, in language books are there for a reason. Try singing instead of speaking. Helps with tones.

        There's also irregular words whose tone isn't as written.
