Thai language

The Thai language, formerly known as the Siamese, is the official language of Thailand and has about 60 million speakers. Thai is a language with very simple grammar because it does not use plural, masculine / feminine and does not have any conjugation …

The biggest difficulty of this language is that it does not have a Latin alphabet and that it exists within this language, 5 different tones for its pronunciation (neutral, amount, descending, high and low).
