    Nice lesson again Mod.
    I just came back from Thailand and really want to learn more. One thing I asked a couple of people and noone really could answer me.
    In Thai you write letter after letter in one sentence without separating words. How do I as a farang know when a word ends and another word starts?

      Sawatdee ka Udo, sorry for my late reply.

      A Thai word consists of consonant + vowel , or consonant + vowel + final consonant (A tone mark os always on the top). The challenge is the vowels, it can be either at the front, on the top, below or surrounding a first consonant. Please pay attention to the vowel form and you can tell where a word starts or ends.

      For example; แม่ (mom) กิน (eat) ข้าว (rice) , we put three words in a sentence. แม่กินข้าว Can you see where the word “eat” starts and ends?

      I hope this makes sense.

        Kawpkun maak krap Mod,
        I think I got it and will try to practice separating the words in a sentence.
