Thai Vocabulary | The Basics

City of Angels
Learning Thai can be a lot easier than you may think!
Starting small is key to staying motivated and have an earlier success when learning a new language for the first time.

Pro-tip
In Thai, sentences usually finish with the word “kha” for women and “krap/kap” for man. This is a small detail that can take your Thai to the next level, making you sound more proficient.

Here are a couple words to get you started:

Hi/Hello - Sawasdee ka/krap
How are you? - Sabai dee mai kha/krap
I’m fine/doing well - Sabai dee kha/krap
Thank you - Khapoom kha/krap
No spicy please - Mai phet na kha/krap
Where is the bathroom please?Rom naam tee nay kha/krap
I’d like some water please - Au naam plao kha/krap

We will make sure to add new words in the upcoming newsletter so you can gradually improve your Thai skills and hopefully it will inspire you to learn more about our amazing Thailand.!
