Item description for Berlitz Thai Travel Pack (Berlitz Travel Packs)...
Outline ReviewThe Berlitz cassette pack with phrase book series comes in several languages, including some harder-to-find language programs like Thai and Hebrew. The series lives up to its claim of letting listeners hear the language "as it's really spoken"--which means fast and slightly indecipherable, just like being in a foreign country and not knowing the language. For anyone who's learned the hard way that trying to understand the local language is nothing like high school language class, that's a real blessing. But true beginners may struggle to memorize the longish phrases like "I want something just like that, only smaller and cheaper." The 90-minute cassette comes with a color-coded phrasebook containing over 400 essential expressions, plus travel tips, dictionary, and a pronunciation guide that reads like another foreign language altogether.
Product Description A fast and effective way to learn basic foreign language words and phrases, Berlitz Travel Packs help travelers acquire more than 3,000 key "survival" phrases that will make their trips more successful and comfortable. As part of a meticulous updating program, our most popular languages have been newly revised and recorded to meet the needs of todays business or leisure travelers. Completely portable, they include the popular Berlitz Phrase Book and an audio recording CD. The audio materials, all recorded by a variety of native speakers, review and reinforce the many phrases, dialogues, and vocabulary of the text. This popular listen and repeat method can also be used independently of the phrase book. Up-to-date usage, helpful cultural tips, and mini-dialogues of typical travel scenarios make Travel Packs the sensible choice for learning foreign words and phrases.

Reviews - What do customers think about Berlitz Thai Travel Pack (Berlitz Travel Packs)?
Good purchase overall Oct 20, 2000
I bought the pack to learn Thai in my car. Male and female speaker are professionals with clear pronunciation. On the whole the pack is suited better for learning a lot of new phrases and sentences than learning to combine words and grammar into new sentences.
Not Good for Understanding Thai Language Jun 20, 2000
I would not recommend this cassette pack to someone who's trying to learn Thai. The phrasebook is a good reference, but the tape could use a supplementary book that introduces the language itself. The Thai script is printed rather small and no effort is made to teach it to the reader/user. The cassette is useful only for perfecting pronounciation and intonation, not for learning the language. The beginner should look for a book that is interactive with the cassettes.
