How do you learn important Thai words quickly and understand the Thai system of thought? This humorous and easy-to-read book gives you a few key words (over 200) that could save you many times the price of this book. It also provides an outsider's sometimes ironic insights into Thailand and Thai society. This fun language guide by an expatriate for expatriates may also be enjoyed by a few Thais who wish to be entertained and, at the same time, to understand how some foreigners think.

Reasons to have “Little Miss Fon Sat On Her Kon” on your e-reader:

--As a conversation starter to make Thais smile, and also to invite help.
--Because words that you look up in dictionaries and word books are often easily forgotten. But with a single silly verse such as “Little Miss Fon Sat on Her Kon”, you will learn ten words that you are unlikely to forget: because the verse makes you laugh.
--Many words are explained with context and commentary. The nearly 160 words are backed by 8500 words of commentary and background.
--When you can speak some Thai, prices drop quite fast!
--As a learning aid: you pronounce the word as it sounds in the book, usually by using rhyming equivalents in English rather than a pronunciation key, and give it your best shot, asking a Thai person to correct you if you are wrong.
--Because a few of these words and phrases are not to be found in many guidebooks, but are words that Thais commonly use among themselves. With their help, you may have a better idea of what's going on around you.
--Even if you already know 200 or 300 words of Thai, you may not know a few of these words, and this book will refresh and reinforce your knowledge of those words that you already do know.
--As a gift for your farang boy friend, husband, girl friend, friend.
