Chapter 2.1

I will introduce you to the most essential vocabulary commonly used in your daily life - Foods, Drinks and Animals. Besides most essential verbs are provided with several examples. If you are ready, let start. /rûem kan!/

Adverbs for quantity

  • มาก mâak = a lot / very
  • นิดหน่อย níd-nòy = a little bit

Please make sure that these to verbs use to modify verb or adjective and put at the end of the sentence.

For example:

  • ฉันชอบหมามาก chãn chôob mãa maak = I very like dogs.
  • ฉันพูดไทยนิดหน่อย chãn pûud Thai níd-nòy = I speak Thai a little bit.

Demonstrative pronouns

These pronouns refer to a specific noun. In English, they are This, That, Those and These

  • นี่ nîi = This
  • นั่น nâan = That
  • พวกนี้ phûak-níi = These
  • พวกนั้น phûak-nan = Those

BE CAREFUL!: นี่ (nîi) with a falling tone is this as a pronoun while นี้ (níi) with a high tone is an adjective.

Please note that the word พวก (phûak) means "group of". Therefore when พวก (phûak) leads a noun, it turns the noun to be plural.

For example for the adjective:

  • คนนี้ khon níi = This person
  • คนพวกนี้ khon phûak-níi = These people

For example for the pronoun:

  • ฉันเอานี่ chǎn aw nîi = I want this.
  • นี่คือซูซาน nîi khue Susan = This is Susan.
