I have 1 week. And now, I am studying.
I'm learning THAILAND language - just started off with the alphabets. **I should learn how to spell before I start using the dictionary kan? ;)
Trust me, it's HARD HARD HARD.
There are 44 consonants and 32 vowels.
And there are categories... In consonant there are low, medium, high... And, Sonorant finals, stop finals... Initial sounds, final sounds. Which, I still don't know how these categories function. Tapi macam arab la, ada huruf ni huruf ni dengung, ada berapa harakat, etc. There's this description (I think it was trying to mean 'dengung', "If you touch your Adam's apple (larynx) while you say Thai syllables with these consonants at the end you will feel a vibration".)
Well, rajinnya kan? But I seriously am soo bersemangat!
Learning new language is fun. :)
