5 In Thai Learning Journey :)

Small milestones to celebrate

  1. I can type in Thai on the computer keyboard without reference yay (only the non-caps board lolol)
  2. I can read much better in Thai without romanisation
  3. I can recognize more words and am a lot faster in reading basic stuff
  4. I just started on my third Thai notebook!

I just started using this free online series of beginner Thai texts and I’m LOVING IT. There’s no romanisation, so it’s great practice and revision for me.

I did 3 at one go and now my brain and eyes are dying, so tired. There’s just something brain-intensive about language learning. I always feel like I can sleep very well after studying lol.

I’m also on my third Thai notebook and the paper is AMAZING. I’m terrible but I love good (expensive) paper. But it does make a difference and it makes me very happy. 🙂 Actually, I still have a couple of pages left for my previous notebook but I was in the middle of a chapter of another book there, so I thought I’ll just start on a new one for this new series of reading.

Sorry if I’m spamming too many photos of language notes, but it’s one of my small joys in life. It’s amazing to think that I’ve been posting language notebook pics for more than 10 years omg. Across a couple of languages.

It’s been a long time since I’m so motivated to study languages. So thankful to Thai lakorns.

I’m reminded of how I used to blog regularly years ago and basically just fangirl and write random things about language learning <3 Those were the days.

    It’s always good to look on the positive side! I’m glad you’re enjoying Thai lately. I’m recently more into Spanish than Korean. 🙂

    Since you mention the paper, I’m curious, where is your notebook from?

    Is there any reason you’re generally less motivated to study..? How do your experiences studying Korean, Japanese, and Thai differ?

      Hi Anna! It’s from Stalogy 🙂
      On motivation, I think it’s because for Korean and to some extent, Japanese, it’s more of maintaining and practicing, rather than ‘studying’ with textbooks! And I do love the stage of beginner-intermediate hahaha.

        I see! I’m sorry, I wasn’t clear. I meant more like how each of your language journeys compare overall, from the beginning stages as well. I guess you like textbooks 🙂
