Thai is a tonal language with five tones.  The best way to show this in English is using IPA
high tone       low tone         rising tone    falling tone, and mid tone has no mark.

The majority of the symbols in the IPA are based on the letter forms of the Latin alphabet, like in English,  however an initial c sounds like a j, an initial k sounds like a g, an initial p sounds like a pb, and an initial t sounds like a dt. Those letters when followed by an h, then have the usual English initial sound, i.e ph, is p as in put, it does not make an f sound.   The N sounds like ng. For more information see
