[prMac.com] Yokohama, Japan - Nagaraja Rivers is pleased to announce the release of Reading Thai - Words & Sentences 1.0 for iOS. This new app helps you practice reading Thai words and sentences in the Thai script. New vocabulary and sentences are presented in Thai script along with audio. Then you can tap the screen to reveal Romanization and English translation to check your reading and understanding.
Reading Thai - Words & Sentences is organized into 25 lessons. Each lesson begins with an introduction of new vocabulary words. Then there are a number of sentences composed of vocabulary words learned up to that point. In total, you will learn to read more than 200 of some of the most common Thai vocabulary words.
Each sentence or set of vocabulary is shown at first in Thai script only. You can play an audio clip as you try to read the Thai writing. Then, to check your reading ability and comprehension, you can tap the screen to show the Romanization and translation of the sentence or vocabulary set. The audio clips were recorded at a slower than natural talking speed in order to make it easy to follow the Thai text as you listen.
The sentences start out with very basic grammar in the first lesson. As more vocabulary is introduced, the sentence structures become more complex, and you learn many patterns used to make Thai sentences. A review of the Thai alphabet is also included in the app for those who want to study the 44 Thai consonants.
