Isn't it great when you can start talking about food in your new language. It really is a great door opener in many situations, because everybody loves food right? Especially Thai people!
In this lesson we will dig even deeper into the vast topic of classifiers and how to use them correctly when you are talking about things with attributes connected to them like for example "a small chili" or "a big bottle of water"
yài = big
lék = small
pèt = spicy
wǎan = sweet
nám-dtaan = sugar
ao = take, want
dii = good
kɔ̌ɔ = request, ask for (similar to "please" in English, but put before the requested item in the sentence)
náam kùat yài nʉ̀ng kùat = A big bottle of water
prík mét lék pèt gwàa prík mét yài = Small chilies are spicier than big chilies
Yǐng chɔ̂ɔp gin aa-hǎan pèt = Ying likes to eat spicy food
ao à-rai dii = What would (you) like?
ao kâao pàt gài nʉ̀ng jaan = I'll have a fried rice with chicken
kɔ̌ɔ kâao pàt gài nʉ̀ng jaan kâ = One fried rice with chicken please
