Today I finished learning the last of the Thai alphabet! Tomorrow is my exam to see if I pass Kindergarten...
I've really loved learning this new alphabet. I think all that I'm good at is best demonstrated in Kindy - remembering lots of details, writing neat little letters over and over. And I still love the teacher's praise just as much this time round!
Here is a sample of my homework book... the first letter of the Thai alphabet: 'g'. Every letter in the alphabet has a matching word. 'g' has 'gai' (chicken).
't, patak' - makes a sound half way between English t and d. There are 44 consonants in Thai.
Numbers 5 - 9. Thankfully Arabic numerals are used much more than Thai. But sometimes things are cheaper if you can read the Thai numbers...
A sample of vowels. The vowels are ridiculous. There are 35 vowels (actually there are different ways to count the vowels, but I've learnt 35.)
And Victor and Khaw resting while I do my homework.
