How to ask
Sa wad dii ka 🙂 Today we will learn to speak Thai. I have different ways to say “to ask” in Thai. Let’s check it out!
1. To ask a question, in Thai we use the word “ถาม” /tǎam/
/káo tǎam chán wâa hěn wɛ̂ɛn-dtaa kɔ̌ɔng káo mái/
He/She asked if I saw his/her eye-glasses.
2. To ask for something, in Thai we use the word “ขอ” /kɔ̌ɔ/
Ex. ฉันขอเงินแม่ 20 บาท
/chán kɔ̌ɔ ngәn mɛ̂ɛ yîi sìp bàat/
I ask my mom for 20 baht
3. To ask someone to do something together, to ask someone to go out, in Thai we use the word “ชวน” /chuan/
/káo chuan chán bpai duu nǎng dtɛ̀ɛ chán mâi wâang/
He asks me to go to see a movie but I’m not free.
Hope you enjoy learning Thai and understand how to use “ask” in Thai 🙂
