Thai Words For Beginner

. . . he he he it was hard for me . . .

Refer: http://www.rawaimuaythai.com/Thai_language.html
Thai language uses long & short tones, high tones & low tones to describe a word, a word such as (Ma) has more than 3 meanings, depending on the tone its spoken with. eg: Ma = Horse, Dog & Come

Most Thai language books I have read are very confusing and the correct pronunciation of simple words can still be quite a challenge. eg: The word "thank you" is spelt "Khurp" in most language books.
For an English speaking person, this word sounds the same as "Cup" .

The words listed below have been written as u would pronounce it in English. Just say the word as if it was English language & you will be understood by most of the Thai locals.

Basic Words & Greetings in Thai language

Hello = Sawa dee
Thank you = Spoken by males = cup / Females = Ka
Thank you very much = Ka poon cup/ ka poon Ka

(Thank you) Cup / Ka, can be said at the end of any sentiance, it is a sign of
respect to whom you are speaking with and is regarded as being polite.

How are you? = Coon Sabbi dee may
I am fine thanks = Pom Sabbi dee cup / Ka
I am good thanks how are you ? = Pom Sabbi dee cup, coon sabbi dee may
Your Welcome = Yin dee cup / ka
Wait = Cooy
Waiting long time = Cooy nun lowel

The word Lowal = past tense - it has happened already.
The word is used at the end of the sentance to say "past tense".

Come = Ma
Come from = Ma Ja
I have come from Australia = Pom Ma Ja Australia
Has come/ Arrived = Ma Lowel

Go = Pie
Gone already = Pie Lowel

When you use the word May @ the end of a sentence, it means you are asking a question.
Are you hungry ? = Coon Hue may
Are you happy ? = Coon sabbi dee may
Do you have a boy friend ? = Coon me fan may

To use the word May in front of a word means = no / don't.

I don't know = May roo
I don't like it = Pom may chop
