Learn Tinglish, understand the Thais and their neighbors!
the expat cofounder of Openmind Projects.
The other and Thai cofounder, TT, Gaweechat Joompaula can speak Thai, as well English and Thaenglish!
Cross culture communication is a challenge but it can be a very fun one! So listen how the Thais speak English!
Or you know what time it actually is when it’s two o’clock in evening?
Thais are no big friends of consonants glued together. They actually feel they don’t need them. And certainly don’t like to pronounce them. Thaenglish: ‘no like too many lettel, n, r, nd, rs, too diffikan, no can say, solly too much!’.
No I am not joking, nor ridiculing. I learned Thai this way!
It is very important to understand how Thais speak English when they translate from Thai and don’t consider consonants. They can make each other understand within the context of the conversation! You need to learn to do that too. No need for plurals or tenses any more!
By the way this is what it means
