Useful website for improvers / readers / conversation

Post by Korkenzieher » Tue Dec 25, 2012 7:57 pm

http://thairecordings.com/#about has close on 10 hours of recorded Thai.

Each recording has a brief English synopsis, but there is a full transcription in Thai. I think it is pretty good for people who want to listen to some Thai, to get the conversational rhythm and also for readers who find it difficult to get suitable practice materials.

The guy (Andrej) is considering stopping the project, but will leave the website up for as long as he can. It is free, under a creative commons licence, and the entire package downloaded comes to about 530Mb. It takes a while though, as there is no packaged up version - it is file by file. Topics covered are many and varied, and are geared towards recounting personal experience and opinion.
