The reasoning sounds pretty sound.

Thanks.

I'd say it gets a gentle thumbs up, overall, on that site. I have an interest in applied linguistics and have just spent enough time -far more than i intended - looking over his method and i'm pleasantly surprised. it's basically he way i'd have done it. read the q & a session. all based on common sense. i've registered for his newsletter. don't know/doubt i'll buy. i'm not really a thai learner. if you read my previous posts on the subject of learning languages i've said many times that TPRS is the best system out there imho. this guys method is v similar to TPRS. i may even email him to see if he knows the method.

Phew, I ordered it, thanks for not saying it is a waste of time!
Fortunately I am pretty good at languages, I used to be semi-fluent in French, could carry on simple conversations in German, and had a smattering of Mandarin, enough to get me everything I wanted in China.
I acknowledge that the methods of teaching I experienced at school (which worked for me then) will not work for a 46 year old alcohol drenched brain, and that is why I looked at this method. I have tried Pimsleur (downloaded for free) and didn't get anywhere really fast. I tried Benjwan Booker's (spelling) book and audio, played constantly on an MP3 player, and learnt a bit, but found retention hard. I am looking forward to trying this method.
Cheers.
