    Hi Andy,

    Thanks for visiting our site. I would like to clarify a couple of points that I feel you may have missed; Our packages range from £39, £80 and £139. This price provides lifetime access to our learning materials (worksheets, audio, video, quizzes, blog, smart flash cards and lots of self study), trained teachers and support services. Our service does a lot more than just provide contact details of a Thai person. We provide a unique and complete solution to learn Thai with local teachers. No other website or service provide a similar service.

    Yes, you can do it by yourself with a mixture of materials and help from Thai speakers, however, not every Thai speaker can teach Thai effectively and a lot of books and courses do not provide clear explanations or teach everyday (informal) Thai. It is not an easy language to learn and it is not an easy language to teach. Getting your questions answered with clear explanations is the key to understanding. That is where we help to save you wasting any time. Because we specialise in only private Thai language tuition and nothing else, there are some other benefits that you may have missed;

    - Trained and supported Thai teachers who understand our materials. Using your own materials, a random Thai person will most likely not be familiar with your books and materials, making it very difficult for them to teach you.

    - Pay teachers directly (after a one-off registration fee we do not take any commission out of tuition fees like other schools. You pay teachers directly and learn for as long as you want).

    - Affordable tuition is supplemented by our registration fee. Because we provide you and your teacher with all the materials to learn together, your teacher does not need to prepare much before/after class and therefore our tuition fees are much lower than average. You pay only for the time you learn.

    - Unrivalled learning materials and teaching methods. Our clear and easy to follow materials are the reason our learners are so successful. Practice is the key to progress so we provide materials for both in class and self study. Please check out our example materials and student testimonials.

    - Lifetime access. You can start / stop / start, change location or teacher and continue to attend flexible and consistent classes with teachers throughout the UK, Thailand, USA, Singapore, Australia or Skype.

    - Regular updates and lifetime learner support. We're always here to help you and your teacher and consistently update and add materials to your package.

    There are too many benefits to list here. I would therefore suggest, if you are serious about learning Thai, that you consider our services more carefully. It is a small investment to make in order to get the support and structure you need to be a successful learner.

    I apologise for the long message! It could be a lot longer as I have so much information to share about learning Thai 555. Likewise, I am sorry if this sounds like a sales pitch, it is not. I just want to help you to learn and hope this information will help you to take the right path to success.

    If you have any questions let me know. We hope to get the chance to be apart of your Thai learning experience!

    Hi guys, just a quick update. I've found a tutor in the Manchester area... she is a lovely Thai lady with 20years teaching experience, and a good knowledge of the TEFL course, that I want to take as well...


    Thai style, that sounded like a long winded sale pitch, trying to get money for nothing... can't understand why any one would pay any thing, just to be put in contact with a Thai tutor... thanks for your info but it's not welcome here...


    It took me a long time to find my tutor Kat, I spent over 2 hours talking with her face 2 face, how She would teach me, and what sort of lessons plans she does... I was more than happy after are convo...
    you get home work, books to learn from, I must stress, this all comes with your lesson at no extra cost!!


    So if any one wants to learn Thai in the Manchester area , at a good rate, No money up front, just pay for the lessons.. I'm more than happy to pass on her contact details...


    Remember guys keep smiling

    Hi Andy, can you pass on the details of your tutor?

    Ive reached out to a couple and waiting on replies, but seems hard work to find someone.

    Just be careful what you learn. I've spent 16 years travelling to Thailand and slowly learning the language only to find that a lot of what I've learned is little more than colloquial phrases and dialect. There are many dialects in Thailand, as there are everywhere and even a different language in a large part of the country (Isaan). If you want the majority of people to understand you I would recommend you learn Central Thai - which as far as I know is as close to 'real Thai' as there is - sort of like Queen's English versus my Yorkshire dialect. There again, I've found that a lot of what the phrase books teach you is very old fashioned and never actually used in everyday conversation.
