VIDEO: How Much per Hour?

When you want to form the sentence using “per” in Thai language, you have to say it backward.

The word ‘per’ in Thai is ละ / lá /

For example;

[1] English structure: 50 Baht per day

Thai structure : day per 50 Baht

วันละ 50 บาท /wan lá 50 bàad /

– day in Thai is วัน /wan/

[2] English structure : 200 Baht per hour

Thai structure : hour per 200 Baht

ชั่วโมงละสองร้อยบาท /chûa-moong lá 200 Baht/

– hour in Thai is ชั่วโมง /chûa-moong/

[3] English structure : 3 days per week

Thai structure : week per 3 days

อาทิตย์ละสามวัน /aa-tít lá 3 wan/

– week in Thai is อาทิตย์ /aa-tít/

[4] English structure : How much per hour?

Thai structure : hour per How much?

ชั่วโมงละเท่าไหร่ /chûa-moong lá tâo-rài/

– How much in Thai is เท่าไหร่ / tâo-rài/


It is very easy, isn’t it? You just have to remember to say it backward! : )


How to say the price like a Thai

1,200 is nùeng pan sŏrng rói. In spoken Thai, the word ‘nùeng’ and the last unit are dropped so we only say pan sŏrng

17,000 is nùeng mùen jèt pan. In spoken Thai it is mùen jèt

430,000 is sìi săen săam mùen. In spoken Thai it is sìi săen săam

9,600,000 is gâao láan hòk săen. In spoken Thai it is gâao láan hòk

    Thai is so sweet when you pronounce it. But when I try to say the same I sound like an orc.
