LivingHour.org is an independent Thailand-based publisher that believes in the old adage that when you learn a new language, you acquire a new soul. We are dedicated to publishing unique Thai & Isaan language books that focus on the colloquial language of Thailand, as well as books that provide fresh perspectives on Progressive Spirituality, regardless of one’s faith.
While many Thai language book publishers produce books written by Thai and foreign authors who no longer live in Thailand, we publish eBooks and books written by professional Thai and native-English speaking educators who live and work in the Kingdom.
Our language books truly represent the street and workplace level Thai language spoken today, helping expats, English teachers, and tourists more fully enjoy their stay in the Land of Smiles.
In addition, we have carefully taken into account the criticisms that Thai language learners have had in the past with Thai phrasebooks, dictionaries, and other kinds of Thai language books. Those who purchase LivingHour.org's ebooks and books can be assured of the following things:
1) All of our Thai sample sentences are very useful for daily situations and are not simply duplications of the kind of phrases found in other phrasebooks and free Thai language websites.
2) Our English phonetic spelling of Thai words is easy to understand and includes tones.
3) Every Thai sentence is followed by a word for word English translation, so readers can know for certain what Thai word corresponds with what English word(s).
4) The Thai script is published in a large enough font to be easily read and words are broken apart to facilitate Thai reading practice.
*All proceeds from book sales go to charity or the development of lessons and course materials at the Ysaan Institute.
