Lesson Transcript

Introduction
Eric: Welcome to 3-Minute Thai Season 1, Lesson 10 - Asking How Much Something Costs. In this lesson, you’ll learn how to ask how much something costs in Thai.
Body
Eric: Here's the way to ask "How much does this cost?" as a female speaker in Thai.
Jay: [Normal] อันนี้ราคาเท่าไหร่คะ(an-níi raa-khaa thâo-rài khá)
Eric: First is a pronoun meaning "this"
Jay: [Normal] อันนี้ [Slow] อันนี้ (an-níi)
Eric: Next is the word meaning "price” or “cost"
Jay: [Normal] ราคา [Slow] ราคา(raa-khaa)
Eric: Next is the phrase meaning "how much"
Jay: [Normal] เท่าไหร่ [Slow] เท่าไหร่(thâo-rài)
Eric: Last is the sentence ending particle to make questions and requests polite when you’re a female speaker.
Jay: [Normal] คะ [Slow] คะ(khá)
Eric: Listen again to the question meaning "How much does this cost?" as a female speaker.
Jay: [Slow] อันนี้ราคาเท่าไหร่คะ [Normal] อันนี้ราคาเท่าไหร่คะ
Eric: Now, imagine you're speaking to a stranger. Here's the way to ask, "How much does this cost?" as a male speaker.
Jay: [Normal] อันนี้ราคาเท่าไหร่คะ(an-níi raa-khaa thâo-rài khráp)
Eric: First is a word meaning "this"
Jay: [Normal] อันนี้ [Slow] อันนี้ (an-níi)
Eric: Next is the word meaning "price” or “cost"
Jay: [Normal] ราคา [Slow] ราคา(raa-kaa)
Eric: Next is the phrase meaning "how much"
Jay: [Normal] เท่าไหร่ [Slow] เท่าไหร่(thâo-rài)
Eric: Last is the sentence ending particle that increases the level of politeness when the speaker is a male.
Jay: [Normal] ครับ [Slow] ครับ(khráp)
Eric: Listen again to the question meaning "How much does this cost?" as a male speaker.
Jay: [Slow] อันนี้ราคาเท่าไหร่คะ [Normal] อันนี้ราคาเท่าไหร่คะ
Eric: Here's a response meaning "OK, I'll take this one." as a male speaker.
Jay: [Normal] โอเค ผมเอาอันนี้แหละ(phǒm ao an-níi làe)
Eric: First is a word meaning "OK"
Jay: [Normal] โอเค [Slow] โอเค (phǒm)
Eric: Next is the pronoun meaning "I" for male speakers.
Jay: [Normal] ผม [Slow] ผม(phǒm)
Eric: Next is the verb meaning "to take"
Jay: [Normal] เอา [Slow] เอา(ao)
Eric: Next is the pronoun meaning "this” or “this one"
Jay: [Normal] อันนี้ [Slow] อันนี้(an-níi)
Eric: Last is the sentence ending particle that implies the speaker's confirmation or determination.
Jay: [Normal] แหละ [Slow] แหละ(làe)
Eric: Listen again to the response meaning "OK, I'll take this one." as a male speaker.
Jay: [Slow] โอเค ผมเอาอันนี้แหละ [Normal] โอเค ผมเอาอันนี้แหละ
Eric: Here's a response meaning, "It's a little too expensive." for both male and female speakers.
Jay: [Normal] มันแพงไปหน่อย(man phaaeng)
Eric: First is a word meaning "It"
Jay: [Normal] มัน [Slow] มัน(man)
Eric: Next is the word meaning "expensive"
Jay: [Normal] แพง [Slow] แพง(phaaeng)
Eric: Last is the phrase meaning "a little too"
Jay: [Normal] ไปหน่อย [Slow] ไปหน่อย(bpai nàwy)
Eric: Listen again to the response meaning "It's a little too expensive." for both male and female speakers.
Jay: [Slow] มันแพงไปหน่อย [Normal] มันแพงไปหน่อย
Cultural Insight
Eric: Now it's time for a quick cultural insight.
Jay: After asking Raa-khaa thâo-rài? meaning “How much is it”, remember to add khá or khráp afterwards to make your request polite. In a casual situation, however, you can omit these and just say Raa-khaa thâo-rài?, meaning “How much”?

Outro

Eric: And that’s all for this lesson. Don’t forget to check out the lesson notes, and we’ll see you in the next lesson!
Jay: สวัสดี ค่ะ
