I’ve been living in Thailand for two years already and I’ve been steadily learning how to understand Thai language. It’s fun, and frustrating at times… but I’m on the optimistic side so I’ll insist that it’s easy if you keep practicing! Last month I enrolled in my first language classes and progress is good so far. I’ll be using Yogable from time to time to practice my thai keyboarding skills!
The ภาษาไทย word สามารถ (sáa mâat) means able adj.
Thai language has five tones. I’m not sure if I’ll accurately be able to type tones in Roman characters but for now in sáa mâat the first syllable is a rising tone and the second is falling. The five tones, recited in order are; mid, low, falling, high, rising.
