Review Story of Palm Part 1 Childhood

Story of Palm

The Story of Palm Part 1 Childhood has two editions; the transliteration version and the Thai script version. The transliteration version aims to provide a fun learning material for the learners who are learning to speak Thai, and are not yet familiar with the Thai script. The Thai script version aims to help the learners to practice both listening and reading with a fun content.

There are ten chapters telling the story from the day Palm was born until she was ten years old. Every story line is written in a natural spoken way, not in a formal written language, since the main purpose of this book is to help the learners to learn spoken Thai from listening and reading.
