Many Struggle Because of the Way It's Taught
So let me show you how we do it...
We use simple pictures with easy to remember names...
Pictures and names that tell you everything that you need to know about what sound (or sounds) the letter makes...
A Single Word Picture Name = 1 Sound
We call this image Kangaroo.
When we superimpose the Thai consonant over it you can see the consonant's shape conforms to the image:
The image name (Kangaroo) has a highlighted letter.
This is the sound this consonant makes:
/k/ as in kangaroo.
But, as it's a consonant, it also needs a consonant class.
These are either:
- High class
- Middle class
- Low Class
The image to the right shows the simple way to remember them:
We then add the corresponding colour as our background:
Now, whenever you see the Thai consonant (ข):
"Kangaroo, red background = /k/ + High Class consonant".
