Instead of just going on a holiday we thought that it would be cooler to do something both challenging, productive and fun. During this period we will show you on a daily base how exactly we’re learning Thai and how we enjoy being in Thailand!
With Olly Richards from iwillteachyoualanguage.com. I will be vlogging about this language mission on a daily base during 21 days. Olly will stay for 14 days and will also be very active sharing his progress on social media.
I will be taking classes and learning on my own for two hours every day. Olly will be participating in an intensive Thai course for two weeks. He also has two hours per day.
Our current level:
I CAN’T speak Thai but I do have some knowledge about the language.
Last year I studied Thai almost every day for about two months. I learned the tones, the alphabet from learnthaifromawhiteguy.com, and I took about 10 to 15 classes on Italki. I also went through the first 1300 entries of the Glossika Thai course. I probably reached an A2 level when I was at my best.
Now I can still recognize some words and basic structures but I’m not able to make proper sentences.
Olly is a complete beginner but started learning some Thai last week with Pimsleur.
Go to Thailand and reach a good A2 level or maybe even a B1 for speaking skills within 21 days. I want to be able to hold simple conversations with natives in Thai.
Olly wants to be able to travel through Thailand without using English.
His goal is to learn ”survival” Thai.
For 21 days my schedule will be something like this:
08:00 wake up and go for breakfast
11:00 one hour speaking session Thai (online)
13:00 one hour self study
20:30 social activities and try to practice Thai.
August 8th – 29th, 2016
Olly will be staying in Bangkok for two weeks.
