Preparing to Crack the Thai Fundamentals – Part 1

Preparing to Crack the Thai Fundamentals – Part 1

Topic Progress:

‘Preparing to Crack the Thai Fundamentals’ is the first course in the ‘Cracking Thai Fundamentals’ suite by Stuart Jay Raj.

In this module, you will learn how to prepare:

  • Mentally
  • Physically
  • Your Environment

This is perhaps the most important course in the whole CTF suite for both beginners and long-term learners of Thai who feel that their Thai isn’t where it should be. Bad habits will be identified and corrected, then new habits will be made in terms of listening, speaking and reproducing sounds. Identifying tones and sound filters from our mother tongues are all covered in this section.

    I can’t view Cracking Thai Fundamentals on a proper way on my macbook. The window not expands, so the video with Stu Jay Ray talking overlaps the underlaying lesson. I can’t find the normal green button to expand.

    What and/ or where do I have to change in settings or maybe extras things to do.

    Is there someone who can help me with this please?
