Interactive Language Learning

The study widgets, videos, and writing exercises on ActiveThai.com actively engage students in the challenge of learning the Thai language.

Based on the time-proven method of using flashcards to stimulate active recall, our study widgets and training videos help you to remember the language vocabulary and phrases on your own, rather than simply staring at the answer in a textbook or recognizing them on a multiple choice quiz.

A Carefully Planned System

The ActiveThai.com system assumes that students know nothing about Thai when first getting started. We know this is not true for most of you, but we also know that regardless of where you are on your path to understanding and speaking Thai, you are probably missing a few things. Maybe you speak Thai well enough, but do not read it at all.

ActiveThai.com is an opportunity for you to start at the beginning, learning the alphabet, tone rules, reading and writing of Thai, and finally, the skills needed to converse in Thai in a wide variety of situations and subjects.
