Say it right! – Orange or Fork

Sawatdee ka,

There are Thai words that sound almost exactly the same. The difference is sometimes the vowel; short vowel or long vowel, or the tone.

First pair of common words is ส้ม [sôm]orange, and ส้อม [sôrm] = fork

The word orange is short vowel but the word fork is long vowel (it sounds a little longer than orange)

Please listen to the audio carefully, and repeat after it. Listen here : 20111122-110622977

GOOD LUCK!
