Thai Language for Travelers – The Basics – Ep.1



Changing things up this week! Several people have asked me to do a Thai language lesson, so here it is! Since Thailand is probably a place many of you want to visit (for visit again, for some of you!) this will probably come in handy sooner or later. Being a tourist in a country whose language you don’t speak can be frustrating, and with just a few words in your pocket, not only can it help you communicate, it can also help to break the ice with the locals—Thai people love it when we see foreigners actually try to speak in Thai. It shows that you’re making an effort, and it might just get you that little bit of help you need 🙂

There will be a whole series of Thai lesson videos coming up, so this first one goes over all the basics, and the next couple will tackle words and phrases that are useful when eating around Thailand. Let me know if you have suggestions on other videos around Thai language and culture!

    タイ語を学びたくて色々探しまして。でも色々見てると少し違うようです。話し方で同じ単語でも男性と女性では違う発音をしてるようです。
    でも、おね~さんが綺麗で分かりやすいからここで学ばせていただきます。
    有難うございます。
