I wanted to jot down a few key Thai phrases that I learned from a friend who had been living in Bangkok for a few years. Please note these are my phonetic pronunciations, not the literal spelling of the words
**If you’re a man, add a “p” at the end to make a word masculine**
Hello – Sawatdee-kah (a man would add a “p” for Sawatdee-khap)
How are you? – Sabai dii mai?
I am well – Sabai dii Kah (a man would say Sabai dii-khap)
I am not well – Mai sabai
Thank you – Khob khun kah (a man would say Khob-khon-khap)
Thank you Vry Much – Khob khun mak mak kah
Help me please? – Chuay duay kah?
I’m sorry – Kor tod kah
No Worries – Mai Ben Rai
Yes – Chai-ka
No – Mai-ka
Having Fun? – Sanuk mai?
I’m having fun/A lot of fun – Sanuk/Sanuk Mak
Cute – Narak
