เกม: คนถัดไป....

Postby Unknown » 2011-07-14, 17:49

Hello Thai students of UniLang, I'll be starting the 'person after me' game in Thai. The literal translation of คนถัดไป is "the next person", just so you'll know.


I obviously will go first:


คนถัดไปชอบผู้หญิงไทย.

Verb Help!!!

Postby jiback7 » 2011-10-08, 21:02

สวัสดี

I've read that can is "ได" and will is "จะ"...

How do I say "want" "like" "should" and "must/have to/need" in Thai?

If possible, can you give example sentences of these? Thank you!

Birthday card in thai

Postby jiback7 » 2011-10-13, 14:02

Hello! I know how to write "happy birthday", but how do I say something more like "It's nice to get to know you" or "have a nice year in America"?? Thanks!

Classifiers

Postby jiback7 » 2011-10-15, 15:46

There are so many lists online of hundreds of classifiers...
What are 5-7 basic need-to-know classifiers? Is there a general, or most frequent classifier?
I only want to know basics like people, animals, books.
Thanks!

PAST TENSE

Postby jiback7 » 2011-10-21, 23:54

Hello! How do you form the past tense in thai without using a time-word in the sentence?

EXAMPLE:

He went to the store.
She danced very well.
We ate and drank together.

Thank you!

มันเป็นเกมที่ คุณจำเป็นต้องมีเพื่อตอบสนองต่อคำสั่งของฉันแล้วพูดว่า"คนถัดไป"และจากนั้นให้ขึ้นประโยคอื่น

Re: Thai TV & Thai Radio online

Postby srroom » 2011-11-01, 15:50

Hi,
I have tried listening to thai radios from several websites but as I don't speak the language it is almost impossible for me to manage. There is the google translate tool but I was wondering if there is a service where I could listen to thai radio and that has an English interface. Thanks for all your help.

Survey

Postby Alexwijting » 2011-11-07, 21:18

Hi,

I'm a dutch student doing a study on kinship terminology in Thai. I was wondering if anyone (with thai as native language) is willing to spend a few minutes on a questionnaire. If so, please pm me for details.

If not, do you have any suggestions on how to conduct an online survey with thai participants who do not have yet fully mastered English?

Any reply would be greatly appreciated!

You don't. Thai doesn't have tense.
[flag]de[/flag] ← native
[flag]eo[/flag] [flag]us[/flag] [flag]zh[/flag] ← fluent
[flag]nl[/flag] [flag]th[/flag] [flag]tlh[/flag] ← intermediate

That's correct. Both words (tongkan and yak) mean "want". I don't know the difference, but it seems minor. Maybe (just maybe) the first one is a little more formal.

:D :D ไม่,คุณจำเป็นต้องตอบไปสิ่งที่ผมเขียนหลังจากที่ฉันเขียน"คนถัดไป...."และจากนั้นคุณเขียน"คนถัดไป...."และจากนั้นจะเกิดขึ้นกับสิ่งอื่น

ตัวอย่างเช่นในภาษาอังกฤษ:

User 1: The person after me smokes weed
User 2: No I do not smoke weed, in fact I don't even smoke at all. The person after me sleeps until 12 p.m
User 3 (or User 1): No I wake up very early. I don't like sleeping in. The person after me takes a shower everyday


ผมหวังว่ามันเป็นที่ชัดเจนตอนนี้.
