    Would a thai to english dictionary be very helpful for thais who dont speak good english to communicate their ideas?
    Or would an electronic translator be better?

    Does a thai - english dictionary not work in Hill Tribe areas , because the hill tribes use a different type of Thai?

    For sure they speak a different language - actually a dozen different languages. Buy the Lonely Planet hilltribe phrasebook!

    Obviously you haven't done your homework about trekking in northern thailand. The people living in the mountains are hilltribes - they are not Thai. They come from many different areas in the neighboring countries. So, obviously, they speak and read a different language. Having said that, Thai is also taught in schools.The ones I met could speak some Thai but they couldn't read or write so well.

    Take Suthee's advice and buy the hilltribe phrasebook. I have it myself and it is very useful.
