At Lanta International Language School we emphasize the importance of listening comprehension training when you study the Thai language. You will learn a lot if you open your ears and listen to how native Thai speakers use their language. As a beginner you will not understand what they say but you will hear how they say it. Such as how Thai people use intonation and tones when they speak. After a while you will start to pick up words and sentences. The YouTube clip below is an example of our listening comprehension videos. For our website we made a version with subtitles in English too (below).
The video shows our manager Khun Thinnakorn who shows us how to find clams at Klong Dao Beach on Koh Lanta.
