Thailand Language Phrasebook
One of the main difficulties in learning Thailand for a foreigner is tones.
In total, there are five tones in the Thailand language,
which are quite difficult for foreigners to reproduce,
and even more so, to distinguish them by ear.
In addition, in a relatively country like Thailand, there are many dialects, which makes understanding even more difficult.
Below is a mini Thailand phrasebook based on the main language (phasaa klang), with which you can easily communicate with the locals in ordinary situations.
Also, the tourist needs to know about the "end of politeness":
"khrap”(pronounce khra:p) and "kha” (pronounce kha:).
The first of them is used by men, and the second by women in relation to all people.
Women, saying "I" and referring to themselves, pronounce “dichan", and men - "pho:m”. It is different phrases for man and woman, be careful.
Such additions, placed at the end of any sentence, make your speech more polite and respectful to the interlocutor. Attitude and communication between people is at the heart of Thailand culture, so you can get good services just for the friendliness, understanding and respect for the traditions of the country in which you are. Pronouncing these particles separately from any context means agreement. Therefore, do not forget to use these particles at the end of a message or offer, and you will be provided
with even more smiles and goodwill in the Kingdom of Thailand.
