Juan José Sánchez Pérez is a Catalonian original from Andalusia, born in Terrassa (Barcelona) he studied at the university city of Terrassa (Barcelona), where he finished his superior education.
Due to the business he was involved in and the needs of his family, he lived in several places, Terrassa, Sabadell, Barberá del Vallés, Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, Phuket, Pattaya, Sri Racha, Pattaya and Bangkok.
His adventure in Southeast Asia began in 1987 when he got the chance to travel to this part of the World and Discovery it Amazing and magnetic culture, It wasn’t until he went to Thailand when he knew that that country would become his home.
Several years ago his daughter Melodie Marie Sánchez Begueris, after taking a look at a Thai book, tod him: ¨Dad, the Thai alphabet is so amazingly complex. I guess you won´t be able to learn it.¨ He nodded and at the same time understood what would become his next goal in life. From that moment on he started to learn Thai. He took all the available information and went to the Prince of Wales school to continue later studying at Pro-Language. It was just the beginning of a long, long journey.
As his daughter said, it wasn´t easy at all. It took him thousands of hours of study, double-checking, thai assistance and sheer effort to master the nuances of the Thai language.

The books are designed for those who don´t know Thai International Phonetic Alphabet. Every word in Thai has a term in Spanish that shows you the best approximation to its pronunciation. While this approach isn´t completely accurate, it provides an useful way to use it in most real-life situations.
The rules used to create the phonetic Spanish equivalents of Thai terms are the same for every word in all the books, allowing the reader to understand how the original Thai word is. This provides a solid foundation to learn the Thai script based on the sound in Spanish.
The book including words, phrases, everyday sentences widely used in Thailand, all of them are completely integrated within the alphabetic list, making it easy to locate them.
The books was developed with the invaluable help of Pannipa Jiamsilp (Bangkok), Marcos Rabassa Portillo (Mataró/Barcelona) and Kanchana Boonsrieskaeow (Sri Racha/Chonburi)
