Thai language

What's the best way of learning Thai?

As a related question, how can I develop a serviceable level of Thai in 60 days?

    Oh you gotta get the slang down bro
    For example, if you want to give them more respect and let them know you are cool..
    You say,
    Sa-wa-dee-Kwai

    Just a little hip tip. Say that to especially your female friends instead of Sawadee-kab and you'll be on the track to Cool Town in no time! Know the lingo!

    i made up a word sentence to help remember words. examples:

    The lawn is hot. b/c lawn is hot in thai language.

    pet duck. b/c pet is duck. but it can also mean Hispanicy-hot depending on how you pronounce it.

    nam is water. so i think of viet-nam being by the sea.

    qua/ sigh / thrum-pie rhymes, and means right, left and straight ahead respectively.

    hung-nam literally means water room, but it is the bathroom- toilet.

        When I had to study Chinese characters, I associated their shapes and pronunciations with perverted sex acts. It worked for me, but now reading at a Chinese menu is like looking at the worst of the dark web.

    I hated the country. Can't imagine staying there for a week let alone learning the language. Rather learn something else. Indonesian?

    There's list of 1000 most used words, learn 16 words by day, done.

    Thai is easy to learn, i can get understood by anyone with my broken thai third language, and people still encourage me and say they never saw a farang speaking that good.

    My biggest fear was the tone, but they actually know what you mean, even if you say dog or horse instead of come (same word different tone).

    There's still can be some confusion, like far and near is also the same word...

    for the pronunciation งอ งู ngaw ngu can be hard to pronounce, you have to train it.

      Tx, that seems like a good tip, but also a bit difficult to maintain just learning 16 words a day with no context or usage.

        No, you don't understand. Just 16 words a day. No grammar. No context. Just speak it. The locals will understand you and help you after u show effort. 16 words a day. Do it. Don't be a fat lazy balding fool with smelly dutch feet.

        Well it depends what you mean by serviceable, if your goal is to order food, ask direction or have very basic conversation about the most important things, i think learning the most used words is the base, that's what baby does actually.

        the context and usage are learned on site.
