One of the best things about smart phones is that they make traveling easier than ever. Whether is is Google Maps, Yelp or Tripadvisor, there has never been an easier way to find great things to do. Now although knowing what to do and where you are has never been easier, actually getting around and buying things can be a bit more challenging - especially in countries where English is not a first language.
In the case of travelers to Thailand, look no further than 'I can Speak Thai Lite' - a great new android application by developer touchtostudy.com that tries to make learning an using the language as simple as possible. The application offers a unique way of learning to speak Thai, allowing the user to input keywords into a variety of headings (object, filter, property, amount), with the application using the inputs to bring up a list of possible phrases. With the click of a button the phrase will be translated into phonetic English, as well as native Thai characters.
If learning a Thai is not your goal, 'I can Speak Thai Lite' is great for travelers looking to communicate. With the press of a button, the application will actually speak your phrase out loud - allowing you to simply hold your phone up and have the pre-rendered male or female voice do all the work for you!
