There are four main Thai languages spoken in Thailand - Central Thai, Southern Thai, Northeastern Thai (the same language is used in Laos) and Northern Thai, but the language referred to as Standard Thai is close to Central Thai. Learning Thai as a "farang" is not really easy, but the Thai people really appreciate if you make an effort. If you want to learn basic words and sentences buy a Thai language course which is available in every book shop selling English language books.

Thai is a very complicated language to learn with a unique alphabet to make it even more difficult. To master a few words is not difficult however and will be greatly appreciated by the locals.

The Central Thai or the Siamese or the Standard Thai is the main language spoken by approximately 25 million people. This is the main language. But there are derivatives like the Khorat Thai that is spoken by about 400,000 people in Nakhon Ratchasima. Along with the Standard Thai there are many important dialects that are spoken and some of them are- Isan is known as the North Eastern Thai and it is the language of the Isan region. It bears a close resemblance to the Lao language though it is written in the Thai alphabet.
