Bangkok Podcast 49: Thai Language 11: Is Learning Thai Hard?
We’ve done a fair number of shows so far in our Thai language series, but one of the most fundamental questions has yet to be discussed – is learning Thai actually hard, or do we foreigners just make it seem that way?
We’re joined once again by our Thai language Jedi Rikker Dockum as he talks about the particulars of the Thai language, how the human brain processes it, and some of the roadblocks that we encounter (or make) as we attempt to learn it. He also tells us how he keeps his Thai skills sharp, how age plays a role in learning language, and the value of making mistakes.
We are also joined by the crew from Bangkok Food Tours, who will be leading our upcoming walking food tour. They tell us a bit about their company, how it began, and what we can expect on our outing.
