Course and Course Book Recommendations

Outlined below are the core curriculum courses with the associated textbook. The cost of the course books is separate from the cost of the training. You may purchase materials directly from the school or if learning remotely directly via Amazon. Please follow the link to the Amazon site for more information about the individual book/media and feedback too.

As a minimum we suggest you should purchase the:

  1. New Thai-English Dictionary – this is an exceptionally clear and well laid out dictionary. Our one critique is that it is possibly too small but it is highly portable and services learners up to Advanced and beyond.
  2. The book associated with your course
The Thai-English Dictionary is available for the PC, Android and iPhone also. The phone options are highly portable and exceptionally useful. The books are available either at the school or direct from Amazon (please follow the links). If you are studying remotely via Skype please purchase the books via Amazon.
