Bought this to be able to communicate in Thailand Useful as far as it goes but found the dictionary part too limited to enable conversation. Can t go wrong with Collins Took ages to arrive though At least a week or something I have to write three words. A great introduction to a very difficult language. I have to use the search facility on the kindle home screen and search for thai for this book to appearbefore I can access it I have searched for a couple of words, and they haven t been in the dictionary So not a good book overall. My main complaint is that there is an established system of marking the tones in Thai, but this book doesn t use it It also inserts R s when the proper pronunciation doesn t call for an R, such as the first one in korb kun krap or ka for thank you The phrases provided are comprehensive, so credit due for that, but I wish the pronunciation system had conformed.
