The official language in Thailand is “Thai”. Though many Thai’s have some English speaking ability, many speak only Thai so it is a good idea for visitors to learn at least a little Thai.
We thought we should post a few vocabulary words in Thai for you all to learn. We will add new words every week so check back often.

Sabai dee – (I am) well.
