Sawasdee krap Khun Mod,
Yours Thai Lessons are very good and useful! I guess, they are the best I’ve ever seen that really works. Trust me, I tried many language schools and private courses here during my long life in Tailand but no one of them was so perfect like Learn Thai with Mod. I will gladly continue to study with Mod and recommend these courses to anyone who really wants to learn Thai.

Sawatdee ka John, thank you for watching our my video. I am happy to hear that you found my lessons useful in your Thai learning. 🙂
I understand your English perfectly well, don’t worry.
Regarding your question, some young Thai people also use English words including the word ‘take care’ which means exactly the same as English.
Another video that needs to be replaced.
Sawatdee ka Jon, thank you for visiting my website. I am in the process of re-edtting my videos and re-upload to my new YouTube channel. Please kindly be patient, and check back in the future. 🙂
Hello Mod. I always enjoy your video.
If I say ‘I’m going go shopping. then I will buy mobile phone’.
Do I need to use ‘จะ’ both sentences?
Which is correct ‘จะไปซื้อของ แล้วก็ จะซื้อโทรศัพท์มือถือ’. or ‘จะไปซื้อของ แล้วก็ ซื้อโทรศัพท์มือถือ’.
Please give me answer. Thank you.
Sawatdee ka, thank you for watching my video. Both sentences are good, but in spoken Thai the latter one is used:)
Thank you very much. I understand it.
