Hello everyone! Pronunciation is an important topic for both beginning and advanced students alike, so we think everyone can learn something from this lesson!

Hello Bjoern,


Thank you very much for your comment. I'm here to answer a comment and question as an experienced Thai language tutor. I'm not a writer for those lessons. The writer is American,he compare sound with English letter not way it pronounce in Thai. He is already correct.

-bp Harder sound than -p in English. The Thai -bp is more like between the -p and -b sounds.

-dt Harder sound than -t in English. Thai -dt is more like between the -t and -d sounds. It is very similar to -t as in "sixty."

Language is to practice and listen from native speaker and try to copy. Hope thatโ€™s help. Please let us know if you have any future questions about Thai language. I will be so glad to helps. We wish you have a good progress with your Thai.


Have a nice day.

Hello Parisa,

Thank you formloser answer.


You should change your lesson then. Because in the lesson you say: -dt is harder than -t and -bp is harder than -p which is wrong as you just confirmed...!!

Hello Bjoern,


Thank you very much for your comment. Really sorry to hear that it hard for you. "dt" เธ•เธญ เน€เธ•เนˆเธฒ sound in Thai language is a sound between -d and-t and it harder than when you say only "d" in เธ”เธญ เน€เธ”เน‡เธ

Hope thatโ€™s help. Please let us know if you have any future questions about Thai language. I will be so glad to helps. We wish you have a good progress with your Thai.


Have a nice day.

-dt, should this not been harder than -d but softer than -t so somewhere between -d and-t. In the lesson you say itโ€™s harder than -t but between -d and -t which seems to be awkward.

Same goes for -bp

I've been learning Thai for more than a week and I'm not sure if the symbol ^ is used as a rising tone or falling tone. Everywhere is giving me unsure thoughts which may mess up my pronunciation.

Hello Alexandra,


Thank you very much for your comment. For your question, we use our own way of romanization which is a little different from Phiboon or Mary Haas. It's easy to master. Please let me know if you have any future questions. I will be so glad to help.


Have a nice day.

hi! I just wanted to ask, what type of Romanisation do you use on thaipod101. As far as I know, there are a few of them. The one by Phiboon or the one by Mary Haas. Which one do you use here?
