    Naughty High Speed Thai...and some help please

    Hello my English friends. I am from Australia ... sorry ... Australia ... yes ... a large country in the southern hemisphere ... yes, you colonized it.. No .. bloody Australia, not Austria...anyway, its not important until I mention the word "cricket' .. but I will leave it at that.

    I am attempting the High Speed Thai course and I was wondering what you esteemed linguist think of the course. Also, am I able to ask questions here? I will ask a simple one if I may. It is to do with 'tones". It would appear a letter (consonant or vowel) does not have a fixed "tone". eg Gor Gai I thought was spoken in a LOW tone but I am seeing some examples in words where it is spoken in different tones. Clearly I am a newbie (virgin) to the language but any help would be ever so appreciated. Time for another beer..cold that is!!

    G'day Darren

    I'm not au fait with High Speed Thai and I'm hardly a linguist but I was taught the tone rules as I learned the different classes of consonanants and the long and short vowels when I studied Thai at Language Express in Ploenchit. I think that you'd need to master these rules too if you're serious about getting to grips with Thai. A middle class consonant, such as gor gai, with a long vowel gives a mid-tone. But when gor gai is accompanied by a short vowel then you get a low tone.

    Enjoy your cold beer!

    Thankyou very much. I am starting to think that I may need to learn at a school so I can have the advantage of a teacher. If I may ask you for your opinion on this. Are you aware of a video lesson based course as I think this would be better than what I have at the moment. Again, thankyou very much. Darren
