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.
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
