From my last post we learned how to say hello in Thai, so let’s continue from there. Let’s begin your first Thai conversation with this nice and lovely greeting question .
sà-baai-dii mái? (สบายดีมั้ย?) means ‘How are you?‘ or to translate directly to English it means ‘Are you fine?‘
The response to sà-baai-dii mái? is sà-baai-dii (สบายดี) which means ‘I am fine’
and as always please finish the sentence with polite particle;)
Now you can start greeting your Thai friends with Thai greeting.

Hi Mod, there are other ways to say “hello”. Which of the following is used colloquially, which is informal?
(1) เป็นยังไงบ้าง (bpen-yang-ngai-bâang?),
(2) เป็นอย่างไรบ้าง (((((bpen yàang rai bâang?)
(3) เป็นไงบ้าง (((bpen ngai bâang?)
(4) เป็นไงมั่ง (((bpen ngai mâng?)
Apologies for my late reply. No 3 and 4 are informal.:)
