3. วิ่งบ่อยแค่ไหน

How often do you run?

 

There are three different ‘how’ question words in Thai language:

Ex. คุณไปทำงานยังไง /kun bpai tam-ngaan yang-ngai?/ How do you go to work?

[2] เท่าไหร่ /tâo-rài/ used to ask for answers that can be measured in numbers

Ex. คุณสูงเท่าไหร่ /kun sŭung tâo-rài?/ How tall are you?

คุณเรียนภาษาไทยนานเท่าไหร่ /kun rian paa-săa tai naan tâo-rài?/ How long did you study Thai?

[3] แค่ไหน /kâe-năi/ used to ask for opinion or perception

Ex. เผ็ดแค่ไหน /pèd kâe-năi/ How spicy is it?

 

  • How often? is บ่อยแค่ไหน /bòi kâe-năi?/
  • How far? is ไกลแค่ไหน  /glai kâe-năi?/ or ไกลเท่าไหร่ /glai tâo-rài/

 

–      สัปดาห์ละ 2-3 ครั้ง

/sàp-daalá 2-3 kráng/

Two to three times per week

English structure is “3 times per week”

Thai structure is “week per 3 times”

 

4. วันนี้วิ่งกี่กิโลเมตร

/wan-níi wing gìi gì-lo-mâde/

Question word ‘how many’ in Thai is กี่ /gìi/

The pattern is noun + กี่/gìi/ + classifier

EX. เพื่อนกี่คน /pûean gìi kon/ How many friends?

คุณมีเพื่อนคนไทยกี่คน /kun mii pûean kon tai gìi kon?/

How many Thai friends do you have?

      Swatdee ka Christiane, I am sorry for this. It is actually the setting in WordPress, I have to approve all comments before it shows and it is my own mistake that I forgot about this setting and didn’t check for the pending comments for a long while. Please accept my apology.

    สวัสดีครับครูมด,

    Excellent video as always …
    I have learnt that the question word mái should be written : ไหม but i see you write it มั้ย, which is closer to the actual pronunciation (้high tone).
    Are both spellings correct ?

    ขอบคุณมากครับ
