The official and native language of Thailand is Thai or Siamese. It’s a tonal language in which different tones and pitches can imply different meanings, and that’s why most learners find this language difficult. The grammar of the Thai language might be considered simpler than grammar in Western languages, and for many students, this makes up for the additional difficulty of the tones. Most significantly, words are not modified or conjugated for tense, person, possession, number (singular/plural), or subject-verb agreement. Determiners such as “a”, “”an,” or “the” are not used.
The benefits of speaking Thai
Each year over 12 million people travel to Thailand and a large number relocate or spend an extended amount of time there.
Tourists can easily get by speaking no Thai if they stick to the main tourist areas. If you can’t speak the Thai language, even a simple task can become a real problem. How are you going to order food at the local restaurant? What about if your car or bike breaks down?
