Méthode de thaï, volume 1 (Livre + 1 CD)

Innovative and ambitious, this method is targeted toward Francophones looking for a progressive and comprehensive method of learning Thai. With the aim of facilitating understanding of both the Thai phonological system and the Thai alphabet, this methodology is divided in two parts, each comprising seven lessons. The first portion of the text emphasizes an assimilation into the phonetic system while the second portion focuses on the Thai script. The audio CD is a useful complement to the lessons, especially for mastering the various tonalities of spoken Thai.

Gilles Delouche

Gilles Delouche (1948 - 2020) was a university professor at Institut national des langues et civilisations orientales (INALCO in Paris) for nearly 20 years. Institute of which he was president from 2001 to 2005. Specialist in classical Siamese (Thai) literature and the history of Siam from 1350 to the first years of the 19th century, he also taught for nearly 15 years (1971-1987) in the Faculty of Arts of Silpakorn University in Thailand, which awarded him an honorary doctorate. Known and recognized both nationally and internationally, Gilles Delouche has been awarded as Knight of the Legion of Honor in France, in tribute to his entire career and for his rich contributions to Thai studies; Thailand awarded him a medal in 2019 from the Thai Ministry of Culture.
