The purpose of this training are the five different pitches,
with Thai words can be pronounced. The objectives are
- to train the ear to recognize the 5 pitches while listening
to Thai language
- to properly pronounce the pitch by yourself
- to learn how the ClickThai transcription show the pitch
This step should be the first in every Thai course, but usually
comes much too short. Therefore, please take it seriously.
Especially with their own pronunciation, I come across as
students consider it funny. If you laugh at yourself, others
will also laugh at you. So try to emulate auditioned Thai
words as accurately as possible, including inflection. Then
you are right and you will be understood.
This training is based on FSI Thai Basic
Course and uses recordings from the original.
