VIDEO: Thai Greeting

Hi everyone,

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.

      สวัสดีค่ะ Ruumi, my old YouTube channel has been suspended, but I have a new channel called “ThaiwithMod”. Please don’t forget to subscribe. I re-upload some of the videos from the old channel to the new one already. I will continue to load more, but it takes some time to edit them.

      I edited this lesson and put a new video in, please recheck. Thank you for watching. kop kun ka:)

    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.:)
