11 High Class Consonants

Hi everyone, in this Thai Language lesson today. There are 44 Consonants in the Thai Alphabet. These are broken into 3 different classes of consonants with different tonal rules. The tones are high class, mid class and low class. Today I would like to teach you how to write all the High Class Consonants. This is quite easy once you know how and with a bit of practice it will come naturally.

Hints – Always start with the circle part of the Thai Script. We illustrate this below. Have a try: 


1. ข /kɔ̌ɔ kài/
kaw kai
2. ฃ /kɔ̌ɔ kùat/
kaw kuat
3. ฉ /chɔ̌ɔ chìng/
