Angry using a site which teaches how to type in thai


My Thai teacher gave me a link to a site which contains typing drills in thai. "thaiedu.net/typing".Although I can access the site, I cannot use the drills properly and get a score. Can anyone sort this?

I am not sure in what way this is connected to Linux, but I can say that Thai letters have a certain resemblance to Hewbrew letters. A language I speak equally well.

Being inclined to waste some time this morning, I clicked around and arrived at a soft keyboard that didn't issue any characters, as much as I tried to type. This is Firefox on Windows 10.

You may, however, want to tell us what exactly is not working for you. Nobody is going to be able to sort out a problem described as "I cannot use the drills properly". And perhaps it's better not to ask this question in a Linux forum. I am sure there are "Learning Thai" forums out there.

Dear Senior Member:
I very much appreciate your wasting your time to answer my thread. My query is related to Linux because although I have installed the Thai language on my computer, (thanks to another member's help),the site (thaiedu/typing)does not appear to work on Linux. Various lessons are set out each dealing with several letters on the keyboard. When Lesson 1 is selected,a few letters appear on the screen. These are to be used as a drill. By clicking on the box containing Thai letters and the number of the lesson - 1.1, another screen appears with a box in which the student can type. However, when I type in the characters, they do not appear in the box.
I hope this information is sufficiently detailed for you. Initially, I assumed someone attempting to answer my thread would try out the site and understand the problem.
You are quite correct in thinking that there are many sites on the internet that offer Thai language teaching. However, I doubt any of them could explain how to use this typing programme on Linux. In actual fact, I don't need to use the online Thai language teaching sites because I have been taking a Thai class now in Ottawa for about eight years now and go to Thailand for three months every winter.
Since it is possible that English is not your first language, I shall give you the benefit of the doubt and assume that you did not mean your answer to sound scornful.

No, my answer was intended to sound funny. Sorry if that failed. The "senior member" title, by the way, is bestowed on me automatically because of the number of posts I have created.

I did try out the site, but on Windows, and was unable to get anything out of the softkeyboard that appeared. So my thinking was that the site is not working correctly.
