How to read Thai vowels- with writing and video

Thai language contains many vowels (far more than English) that makes the pronounciation a little challenging. Thankfully I’ve managed to record the video of a visiting Thai teacher who taught us the Thai language to aid you to learn to read the vowels.

First, the picture of the vowels (as taken from the poster in Wat Chetawan)- click on the picture if you wish to enlarge:

The writing is as follows as per the arrangement on the poster:

_ะ     า    ิ    ึ
ึ    ื  ุ     ู
เ _ะ         เ _       แ_ะ          แ_
โ_ะ        โ_        เ_าะ         _อ
อัวะ     อัว       เอียะ   เอีย
เอือะ    เอือ   เออะ   เออ
อำ       ใ_      ไ_        เ_า
ฤ     ฤๅ   ฦ     ฦๅ

This is a more recent and clearer video:


This is a video that I have made long time ago using my Blackberry phone:

Hope it helps- I will definitely refer to this often.

I have written further articles related to learning Thai language which you can check out from this link: Thai language main page.
