Logical Colour-coding

This consonant class affects the tone of every syllable or word in Thai.

It sounds daunting, but with our simple colour-coding system, we show you exactly where everything slots into place: there is no confusion, it is precise, exact and you can easily follow us, every step-of the way.

As you can see, the familiar picture above makes it easy to remember which is which.
