Poorly designed lessons. Form over substance. - WordPower Thai misses the mark badly by failing at it's primary task: Teaching Thai vocabulary. You'll likely start the app with the "Thailand Top 100" words. This set of basic words starts off with a few basics like "Good morning" and "Nice to meet you". Unfortunately, the creators of the app clearly are not Thai as the sentences they give you (like "Sawat dee don chow") are simply not used by Thai people, and you'll sound like a bit of an idiot if you use them. After about 7 or 8 basic expressions, the "Thailand Top 100" words gives you the words for "Buddhist Lent" and "Chulalongkorn Day". One has to wonder what the creators of this app were thinking when they decided that the 8th most important word in the "Top 100" was "Buddhist Lent". Really? I speak fluent Thai and I think I learned that word after living in Thailand for about 4 years. Moving on, the 11th most important word is "Beer Chang". Why? It would be one thing if Beer Chang was Thailand's most popular beer -- but it isn't. Can you imagine being told that the 11th most important word in English was "Coors"? After that, you'll move on to words like "Mekhong", which translates to "Mekhong" in English. You're probably wondering .. "But what's 'Mekhong'?" Unfortunately, the program does nothing to explain it to you. Just remember, the word for "Mekhong" in Thai is "Mekhong". Got it? Oh, and the word for "Sato" is "Sato" -- which is also apparently in the top 100 words. I could go on, but it's already clear that this is a Thai app designed by people who have zero interest in actually teaching you anything remotely relevant to the Thai language, and are simply hurling out random words, brand-names and rarely-used phrases in no apparent order. What this app needs more than anything is an actual TEACHER to be involved at some level with the selection of words and phrases. Avoid this app. You'd be better off just getting a dictionary. At least then you could pick and choose words that you might actually use someday.
