Private Thai lessons in NYC

Thank you for stopping by.

if you wish to start a Thai lesson, please include the following information.

  1. Your purpose of learning Thai: work? family? personal development?
  2. Time frame: travel plan in three months? crash course? a long term goal to reconnect with distant Thai relatives?
  3. Your previous experience in learning a foreign language.

These questions should help you think about your decision to start a Thai lesson. Thai is not an easy language to learn, but the goal to master the Thai language is attainable. I just want to make sure that you really commit to it.

Thank you for reading this message ka.

A Man in Saffron Robes by Maitree Limpichart

A friend of mine Stephen Landau did a wonderful job translating this Thai masterpiece, A Man in Saffron Robes, a work by Maitree Limpichart.

Please check out reviews here.

The book review appeared in Journal of Siam Society.

As I wrote here, literary translation requires so much brain power to engage in such creative endeavor. I don’t believe that many Thai works are translated into English. Landau’s work is definitely a good place to start your collection.
