Learn Thai – planning a date

Sawatdee ka,

 

This lesson we will learn how to plan a date. Before you go on a date there should be some planning, right? so we would need to ask for a suggestion.

The key pattern is:

Wh- question + “dii” ดี ?

 

When you put the word “dii” ดี after a question, it conveys the meaning of asking for a suggestion or advice.

ทำอะไรดี tam à-rai dii?

What shall we do?

 

ไปที่ไหนดี bpai tîi-năi dii?

Where shall we go?

 

กินอะไรดี gin à-rai dii?

What shall we eat?

 

ไปกี่โมงดี bpai gìi moong dii?

What time shall we go?

 

KEY VOCAB FROM THE VIDEO:

ต่างจังหวัด [ dtàang jang-wàt ] = out of town, up country, other province

อาหาร [ aa-hăan ] = food

ทำ [tam] = to do

กิน [gin] = to eat

ไป [bpai] = to go

 

I hope you found this lesson useful:)

    Kruu Mod,

    Can you also use “Bpai” for the question “Where is the/my pencil?”

      It is an informal particle. I am speaking to my little sister so I don’t need to use “ka” 🙂
