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.

Jai Yen – Literal translation is “cool heart” but really means calm natured (also our dog’s name).

Sawadee – Hello.

Choke dee – Good Luck.

Sabai dee – (I am) well.

Phuying – Female.

Phuchai – Male.

Sanook – Fun
