I was at my parent’s home with my younger brother and sister , so I asked them to make a Thai lesson video together. You will learn a few fun Thai slang commonly used in everyday life in this video. I hope you enjoy the lesson. 🙂
See below to learn what were said in the role play.
มิ้ง จะไปไหนอ่ะ /Mink, jà bpai năi à?/ Where are you going?
– The question word ‘where’ in Thai is ที่ไหน /tîi-năi?/, but in spoken Thai when it is used after the word ไป /bpai/ we commonly just say ไหน / năi/?
– อ่ะ / à/ is an informal particle used to put at the end of a statement and question.
จะไปเที่ยวทะเลกับสาวอ่ะ /jà bpai tîao tá-lay gàp săao à/ I’m going to the beach with a girl.
– ไปเที่ยว / bpai tîao/ means ‘to go out for pleasure’.
– สาว / săao/ means ‘girl’ usually refers to young girl used in casual spoken Thai.
เท่ห์ป่ะ /tây bpà?/ Do I look cool?
– ป่ะ /bpà/ sometimes sounds /bpâ/ is a yes/no question word used in casual and informal conversation. It has the same meaning as มั้ย /mái/
วันนี้เท่หวะ /wan-níi tâu wà/ You look cool today.
– หวะ /wà/ is an informal particle used for emphasis.
– The word เท่ meaning ‘cool’ is written without ห์. There are a lot of confusion on the spelling of this word, including me.
ไม่ได้โม้ / mâi-dâai móe/ We didn’t lie
– ไม่ได้ /mâi-dâai/ used to form ‘a negative past’, in English would ‘did not’
– *** โม้ /móe/ in Central dialect means ‘to brag’ or ‘to boast’. A boastful person is called ขี้โม้ /kîi-móe/. However, in Southern dialect (My family is from the South of Thailand) โม้ /móe/ also means ‘to lie’.
ไปแล้วนะ/ bpai láew ná/ is an expression ‘ I gotta go’.
โชคดี /choke-dii/ means ‘good luck’
