Mickey and Minnie in Thailand

If you have not watched this new Disney short film,  this is a must-see. Of course, the Chip ‘n’ Dale song is such an earworm for Thais. This short film is already becoming popular in Thailand as it presents the country in a good light. I asked my Thai students to watch it without turning on CC this week. Perhaps you should try also.

Thai sentences from the short movie:

  1. ขอบคุณ/khob-khun/Thank you
  2. สัปปะรด/sup-pa-rot/pineapples
  3. ข้าวผัด/khao-pad/fried rice
  4. ขอโทษ/Kaw-thod/I’m sorry.
  5. นี่ที่ของชั้น/tii-nii khong chan/This is my spot.
  6. มีปัญหาเหรอ/ mee pan-haa reu/ Do you have any problem? (Note: this is a Thai phrase that is used when someone wants to start a fight.)
  7. สวัสดี/ sa-wat-dee/ Hello
  8. ไม่เป็นไร /mai-pen-rai/ That’s alright. Never mind.

Thai language class for children in New York City

I got many inquiries for a Thai language class for children in New York City. Here is the detail. My specialization is teaching Thai to adults, so I’m not confident that I’m the best person to teach children. I believe that children learn differently.
