Where is it in ThaiLearn Thai Question -Where is it?

Hello guys!

Do you still remember how to use ‘verb to be’ from my last lesson? I believe you all do and speak Thai better!

In this lesson, we will use that knowledge to form the question “Where is it?”

“Where” in Thai is “tîi-nǎi”

and from the knowledge of the verb to be +places = yùu

“yùu” means to be somewhere.

Now..if you want to ask where a place is, you just put three words together which are [1] the place, [2] yùu, [3] “tîi-nǎi”

For example;

Where is the bathroom?

Hôrng-náam yùu tîi-nǎi ?

Where do you work?

Kun tam-ngaan tîi-nǎi ?

**Please notice that we switch the position of the word “where” from the beginning to the end of the sentence**

To answer some Where-question you need to know some prepositions in Thai. Let’s see what we have.

1. nai = in

2. bon = on

3. dtâi = under

4. rá-wàang = between

Example: 

Where is the book?

 nǎang-sǔu yùu tîi-nǎi ?

It is on the table in the bedroom.

nǎang-sǔu yùu bon dtó nai hôrng-norn

It is easy, isn’t it? The Thai language is not that hard if you try. Keep practising guys then you will speak Thai very well!

 

As always enjoy!
