5 Linguaphone Thai Complete CD Course You could learn Thai from this, but only if you are English. British material often uses the "r" to make a long vowel, rendering the sound non-sensical for North Americans, as well as the Thais, who must speculate as to what you are trying to say. A price-quality comparison with other materials makes this a dubious choice. Audio ✔Yes

7 A.U.A. Language Center Thai Course, Book 1
J. Marvin Brown
The A.U.A books are old but quite useful. The practice drills are excellent. Transliteration uses the IPA. As with the Paiboon material, time spent learning the IPA might be better spent learning Thai script. No Audio

8 Practical Thai Conversation DVD Vol. 1
Paiboon Publishing - Benjawan Becker
Ok, as compared with other conventional DVDs. You will need the booklet in one hand as you fumble with the other hand to re-wind the DVD back to the right spot. (Learning to speak Thai requires repetition ad nauseam.) Audio ✔Yes

10 Thai, Conversational: Learn to Speak and Understand Thai with Pimsleur Language Programs (Pimsleur Instant Conversation)
I avoid the big corporate stuff like the plague. Anything called "instant" has got to be a rip-off. Their advertising says "No mindless repetition!" -- No sir, I can not recommend this. Mindless repetition is good, good, good! Audio ✔Yes
