The audio is virtually useless. The English narration occupies so much recording time compared to the Thai speakers that an immersive effect is almost impossible to achieve. The student has to fire up his audio editing software and ruthlessly edit out much of the redundant English in order to enhance the signal-to-noise ratio.
I am disappointed because I am actually comparing this apples-to-apples(!) after experiencing "Complete Hindi: A Teach Yourself Guide (Teach Yourself Language)" of the same series.
Major positive point: all vocab, dialogues and sentences are accompanied by Thai script. To the learner: work hard to learn to read Thai script if you want to pronounce the language correctly. Listen to the CDs, which you must have.
My other peeve is that I wish it had more and longer dialogues.
Overall, a solid course, but one star is deducted for the confusing romanization system.
