This practical dictionary is designed to help English speakers communicate in Thai. It is equally useful for those who can read the Thai alphabet and those who can't. Most Thai-English dictionaries either use Thai script exclusively for the Thai entries (making them difficult for westerners to use) or use only phonetic transliteration (making it impossible to look up a word in Thai script). This dictionary solves these problems by dividing the entries into three sections: Section One [English-Phonetic-Thai], Section Two [Phonetic-Thai-English] and Section Three [Thai-Phonetic-English]. The transliteration system is the same as that used in Paiboon Publishing's other books. You will find most of the vocabulary you are likely to need in everyday life, including basic medical, cultural, political and scientific terms.
Here are some of the features:
Consistent and accurate phonetic transcription of Thai sounds for those unable to read the Thai alphabet
A comprehensive guide to pronunciation
Thai script for those who read Thai
All entries organized in three easy to use sections
Thai alphabet guide showing different styles of Thai script to help you read shop signs and newspaper headlines
It's the ONE Dictionary You Can Really Use!

Benjawan gained extensive experience teaching Thai to foreigners while studying for her M.A. in Japan with the Japan-Thailand Trade Association and Berlitz Language School, and in the US with Thai temples, Stanford University and private students.
