On the 5th day, we learned about “?ahÇŽan” (food). As usual we started with words we already learned before and then our teacher gave us new words. We start to combine the questions and made complex sentences.

We started with questions do you know…, do you think … is …, which one do you think more delicious … or … :

  • Khun rúu càk ?ahÇŽan thay máy kh? ( Do you know Thai food ?)
  • Khun khìt wâa ?ahÇŽan thay ?arɔ̀ɔy máy kh? (Do you think Thai food is delicious? )

On the 3rd day we learned new adjective words, and ask questions using : máy? like in sà-baay dii máy kh?. It seems our teacher forgot to check our homework, but I think it’s okay, because practicing the 5 tones is something that we will use a long the way.

Our teacher bring some pictures of famous people (actor / actress, singer or politician). Then she starts with question to check whether we know that person or not. After that, she asked whether that person is beautiful or handsome, tall, short, rich, poor, generous or friendly. And if we don’t know we can say : I don’t know or just say what we think.

For example I will use name James Bond, you can change the name with other names and even name of places

Q : Khun rúu càk James Bond máy kh? (Do you know James Bond?)
A1 : ♀/ ♂ rúu càk James Bond kh (I know James Bond)
A2 : ♀/ ♂ mây rúu càk James Bond kh (I don’t know James Bond) Continue reading »
