The Basics - Learn to Speak Thai
 
 

This is a simple guide for the benefit of visitors and to help those intending to learn Thai to get started. We’ve left the proper learning to the experts, which can be found listed in the resources section. But the following basic words, along with our introductory tutorial in the grammar and sentence structure sections, should help you to communicate at a basic level. We’ve also made this section print friendly so you can take a copy with you as you travel.

Introductions

mai pen rai

Mai pen rai is universally used to mean, ‘its ok’, ‘oh well’, ‘you’re excused’, ‘forget about it’ and more.

Thais are very civil and polite by habit and will always add krup (male) or ka (female) to the end of the sentence when addressing others unless they are very familiar with them. Often they will also, as a matter of course, add na in front of this to soften any commands. It’s important to get into this habit from the start.

Expressing time: this is somewhat tricky in Thai as they have traditionally broken the 24-hour clock into four sections. As a beginner, it’s too confusing to follow and your best bet is to stick to a 24-hour clock (e.g. 1pm would be sib-saam chua mong or 13 hours).
