    Thanks, and nice call on “Only God Forgives.” Man, that was lousy.

    A practical video, thank you, Mod and Pear!
    The only drawback is that it’s too noisy. I can’t hear the conversation clearly. Background noise might be necessary, but not too much.

      Thank you for watching:)

    Khun Mod is there a grammatical mistake in the second sentence ?
    Should it be arai and not raia?

    • Nico 07/04/2015 at 17:25 #

      I often hear thai people say ไร (rai) instead of อะไร (arai), so in my opinion no mistake in the second sentence 🙂 but let’s see what ajan says.

      • Mod 08/04/2015 at 22:33 #

        You are right. Thank you. 🙂

        • Nico 10/04/2015 at 13:19 #

          You are welcome ajan 🙂 Thanks to you as well for your videos, they are so much helpful for learning Thai ^^

    • Mod 08/04/2015 at 22:32 #

      It is common in spoken Thai to shorten the word “อะไร à-rai” to “ไร rai” when speaking with friends. They mean the same thing 🙂
