While the idea of learning by association is good, the "offerings" presented on this website will only steer the beginner into the mispronunciation of words. The romanized spelling found in dictionaries, while not perfect, are much closer to the actual sounds of Thai. If the author of this website thinks that "car" sounds anything like the female word for yes "KA", then he has a alot more studying to do.

So what does 'KA' sound like. It doesn't appear in my English dictionary and I've never heard of it.

Yes, I don't know how you pronounce 'Ka' either. Is it like the 'Ka' in kale, or like the 'Ka' in Kangaroo, or like the 'Ka' in Karma, or like the 'Ka' in kayak?

Sometime after my last comment about the possible pronunciation of "Ka", I remembered that Ford introduced a model called the "Ka". So I did some searches on how it should be pronounced and found this comment:-

Is it Ka as in "car"? This is the official Ford pronunciation, but you might look silly when you're trying to explain to someone exactly what type of car you have just bought. "Hey, I've got a new car!"

Very useful and quite amusing

Very useful and simple too. I have been going to Thailand 36 years and this is the best method I have seen. Thanks for a great job.
