Do You Know Enough Thai in Case of an Emergency?

Jo & Jay over at Learning Thai Podcast have put together a very helpful podcast teaching you the Thai you need to know during an emergency. They have also included a very handy PDF that you can download which contains the words and sentences in English, Thai, and phonetically. Also included in the PDF is a very good list of emergency numbers that any traveler to Thailand should have in case of an emergency.

This is a great resource to have if you are going on your first trip to Thailand or if you’ve been before but are still unsure of the language. If you wander outside of the normal tourist areas this could be a lifesaver.

Jo and Jay work together at Learning Thai podcast to bring you Thai lessons that are very well thought out. Each lesson is based on one subject or theme which helps the listener focus more. Each word or phrase is spoken in English and then spoken in Thai after a short pause for you to say the word or phrase it is then repeated three times which helps to reinforce the correct pronunciation.

I’ve used Pimsleur and Rosetta stone with a moderate degree of success and of course learning while in Thailand but I really like Jo and Jay’s approach to the lessons and I can get a better feel for the pronunciation when Jo speaks in Thai.

They have many free podcast lessons and have just launched a premium course. They also provide a translation service. If you are interested in learning Thai you should definitely check out their site.

I’ll include a copy of the PDF here ltp_emergencies.pdf

You can also check out Useful Thai Phrases Part 1 and Useful Thai Phrases Part 2 for more Thai words that will help you out when traveling around Thailand.
