Thanks for that Ally.
Let me share a couple of sites I use and I don't think have been mentioned here before: http://www.youtube.com/user/algworld.../0/oIqIrEG6_y0
I stumbled across this website called Thai Flashcards. So far i am quite please with it. It helps with pronunciation, reading and writing. I subscribe to the email facility and receive words and sentences daily. This is free, however there is a more advanced section which charges a small fee, but not tried this yet.

The ALG one looks very interesting, I would recommend watching the David Long explanations of the methods parts 1-6 before you launch into a lesson, as when I went to straight to the first lesson I thought 'what's going on they are just speaking Thai and not doing any teaching'. After watching this, it also taught me to not drift off into a world of my own when Thai's are speaking but to watch and listen to what is going on even if I don't understand it.
Here is the link to David Longs explanation.
Some good links there. I like the ALG videos. Something i would like to be able to attend, however 6,000 miles and 100's of hours off work makes this just a little bit impossible.
Another you tube site i like is Thai-o-Matic This helps me with the vowels sounds, but still struggle to remember them... practice practice....
Another site i like is Slice-of-Thai .They have down-loadable flash cards which i are handy when commuting to work.
There must be loads of good resources out there on the net.Hopefully others may be able to contribute more sites.

My site is at http://womenlearnthai.com
Note: the name is tongue in cheek
Many wonderful Thai learning sites can be found in my Learn Thai for FREE page.
Several new resources I've come across:
English Thai Dictionary Online
ดึงดูดใจ – Thai Lyrics and Translations
(not sure why the last link is so huge)

The Thai Flashcards site is great. The subscription is only a few quid a month and when you sign up (even for free) you get an email every day with a new sentence for you to read.
With the paid subscription, you get access to the sounds on the site which use different native speakers who read the sentences at what is comparable to normal speed. They pronounce things quite correctly, so it's not quite the same as you will hear 'in real life' but I found it very useful.
Catherine's site is also a great resource for Thai learning and has some great content and links.
I really want to learn Thai language since I find their language interesting too. I know Flashcards will really help me since I am doing this in Japanese Flashcards as well. This is a big help to improve speaking and writing with this language.
The above is very usefull
