Learn to Speak Thai


These Wav Files work in most Players



Note: The ending of a statement should end with "Krup" if you are a man and "Ka" if you are a woman. In English it would be Sir or Madam, But in Thai it is the Gender of the person speaking that matters not the person you are speaking to.
