Wow, that expensive. I downloaded their app on my phone about 2 years ago for $4. Use to listen and practice while driving to work when in the US. Good app for learning basics, which is all I was really interested in. I guess that price is on par with the likes of Rosetta stone software but I don't believe they have Thai.

I looked into Rosetta stone but read a lot of bad reviews about the Thai program. And I think I saw that it doesn't work on newer versions of windows. I think they stopped producing thai in the newer versions of Rosetta stone.

I'll also recommend ThaiPod101. It's far better than what I was doing before (book + CD). I like the format and I love the flashcards. There are actual multiple flashcards for each word or phrase: translation, audio clip of the word, the word written in Thai. You can also create your own flashcard decks. There is a ton of content in the program. I've had his subscription for almost two months and I'm only halfway through Absolute Beginner Season 1. There is also an Absolute Beginner Season 2 and then the Beginner level and it goes up from there.
Note: They have a mobile app, which is good for the audio lessons, but you can't get to the flaschards with it. So I have to go to their website (on my phone) and access the flashcards that way. The flashcard webpages are not optimized for smart phone screens, so it's a little wonky.
They also have transcripts and notes for every lesson, handouts (cheat sheets), over 100 video lessons, your study stats and more. You can get your own real-live tutor, but that's only for the Premium PLUS subscription. I didn't sign up for that. I go to my local Thai restaurant each week and practice with the girls there.
If you watch their website, they sometimes have some good sales. I got a 6 month Premium membership for $72.
