Thai Language Resources

Started Thai in April 2020 🙂 Let’s see where this brings me! Sharing resources that I’ve personally used.

Learning the Thai Alphabet

Beginner Textbooks

Japanese

  • 表現を身につける初級タイ語 – Loving this! One of my main textbooks
  • タイ語の基本 – Another of my main textbooks. This one is grammar focused, so I use it to complement 表現を身につける初級タイ語

English

  • Easy Thai – The textbook which I use in English

Korean

  • 맛있는 태국어
  • The 바른 태국어 첫걸음

Reading Materials

Thai Dramas

  • Love Destiny – The drama that started it all 😛 (9/10)
  • Ugly Duckling Series: Don’t – AW this got my heart!! (9/10)
  • Ugly Duckling Series: Perfect Match – Decent watch, although I don’t like the male lead as much as I did for Don’t. ZERO is still my love 😛 (7.5/10)
  • Hormones Season 1 & 2 – LOVE (8/10)
  • Oh My Ghost | OMG ผีป่วนชวนมารัก – So much heart in this show, I cried. A show that I will revisit time and again (9/10)
  • 2gether: The Series | เพราะเราคู่กัน – My first BL drama and I love it!!! Also a show I rewatched. I haven’t warmed up to season 2 yet though sadly (9/10)
  • Let’s Fight Ghost คู่ไฟท์ไฝว้ผี – Remake of a Korean drama. I loved it, but the last two episodes were pretty much a letdown. It seemed to lose steam. Still good though (8/10)
  • Dare to Love | ให้รักพิพากษา – I loved it so much at first, but we barely get to see the main pairing being TOGETHER. Sigh. And the female lead can be so frustrating. (7/10)
  • Remember You | คือเธอ – LOVEEEEEEEEEEEEEE. (10/10)
  • Bangkok Love Stories: Objects of Affection | Bangkok รัก Stories 2 ตอน สิ่งของ – I love the cast, and the premise. But I can’t objectively say that it’s good, not when the plot is pretty weak, with the two most ineffectual villains and illogical decisions, along with the last ep where I was just like OMG WHAT NO HUH WTH. That said, it was still a pleasant watch which I definitely didn’t regret. (7/10)
  • Bad Buddy | แค่เพื่อนครับเพื่อน – Everyone says this tops the BL genre. I think this tops the romance / friendship genre for me. One of those shows you’ll want to rewatch again and again, and be able to pick out more details each time. LOVE x infinity. (10/10 for sure!)
  • The Gifted | นักเรียนพลังกิฟต์ – Watching! Cos I can’t get enough of Nanon 🙂

Thai Movies

  • Back to the 90’s (Thai Movie)| 2538 อัลเทอร์ มาจีบ – This is such a heart-warming story. I’m a sucker for time travel shows too (9/10)
