    • Khorat Thai
    • Northern Thai
    • Southern Thai
    • Phu Thai
    • Phuan
    • Shan

    Most speakers of dialects and minority languages speak Central Thai as well, since it is the language used in schools and universities all across the kingdom.

    Isan language

    Isan language is the collective name for the dialects of the Lao language as they are spoken in Thailand. It is spoken by approximately 20 million people, which is nearly one-third of the entire population of Thailand, predominantly in the Isan region of northeastern Thailand. It serves as the primary lingua franca of the Isan region, used as a communication medium amongst native speakers and second language speakers amongst various other minority groups, such as the Northern Khmer. There are more speakers of Lao (Isan) in Thailand than in Laos.

    For people who are planning to stay for a long period in Thailand it is definitely a must to learn the language (even the basics).
    It will surely make your life easier!! But unfortunately though in Thailand there are several local dialects too!
    So goodluck with that.

    I've always been interested in learning the Thai language and alphabet. It looks very challenging!

    I think its hard to learn basic language in Thailand. But practice makes perfect as everyone knows.
