Tom and Jerry reach the 7-Eleven only to find that none of the staff can speak English. They try to ask for help, but no one seems to be able to understand them. They start to worry about how they will pay their driver, but suddenly they hear a friendly voice behind them that says, "Do you need help?"

Tom: "Yes, please! We need to make change for this 1000 baht note, but no one seems to speak English!"

Stranger: "I can help. I'm a tour guide and speak both Thai and English. How much change do you need?"

Jerry: "We only need change for 50 baht. We took a tuk-tuk to get here."

Stranger: "No problem. Let me handle it."

Click for Learning Tips

Here are some tips for getting the most out of this site.


Beginners: My strategy is to first read the translation while listening to the audio. Then I listen to each sentence individually. After that, I practice saying the vocabulary words out loud. Finally, I listen to the whole text again without reading the translation. I don't try to remember or understand everything. I just let the language sink in as I gain more exposure. (Videos about Comprehensible Input)


Intermediate Learners: To gain some speaking practice, try opening the translation in your native language and then translate it back into the language you're learning. If you encounter any difficulties, you can refer to the transcripts.


Although you may use these lessons for short, intense study sessions, it's important for intermediate learners to engage in extensive listening and reading with simple books, TV shows, and podcasts as soon as possible.
