Thai good to know Quiz!

Do you know how to say this words "She understands" in Thai?

Many expatriates who live in Thailand and travelers who take a trip to Thailand might want to know how to say the word “Excuse me” in Thai language for starting to question, getting someone's attention, and bothering someone.

First of all, I want to teach you the Thai particles as below regarding to you will understand Thai easily.

Khrap(Thai: ครับ) is a Thai particle to add at the end of the sentence. This is only for male to use it.(Sentence end word of Male)

Kha(Thai: ค่ะ) is also one of Thai particles to put at the end of the sentence. If you are female, you use Kha(Thai: ค่ะ) putting at the end of the sentence.( Sentence end word of female).

It’s very simple! Why? Because, Thai has just only one word for both “Excuse me” and “I am sorry” in English.

Here it is:

Kho thot

But Thai language has some particles to express how politeness of speakers to listeners in a conversation.

If you are a female, you say:


Khothot kha

I am sorry.

Likewise, if you are a male, you use:


Khothot khrup

I am sorry.

Then after that, you start up any conversation as you want.

Example sentences:

ขอโทษครับ ห้องน้ำไปทางไหนครับ

Khothot khrup Hongnam pai thang hnai khrup

Excuse me, Where is the toilet please?

ขอโทษค่ะ สนามมวยลุมพินีทางไหนคะ

Khothot kha sanammuai Lumpini pai thang hnai kha
