Nick: Okay, Thank you!
John: It’s really important to know what expenses you can claim at work.
Anutida: Yes, you should always get that clarified quickly.
John: Travel expenses are a really common thing. Speaking of travel, what kind of transportation is there in Thailand?
Anutida: You can of course drive or get a taxi, but that isn’t always the best option.
John: Does the rush hour traffic get bad in Thailand?
Anutida: In major cities, yes. If you’re going to a meeting, the last thing you want is to be late due to traffic.
John: What other options are there?
Anutida: If you’re in Bangkok, then BTS and MRT are the most convenient.
John: How about motorcycles?
Anutida: Actually, there are motorcycle taxis, they’re pretty good at navigating through traffic.
John: If it isn’t too busy, are taxis a good option?

Anutida: It can be used in any circumstances at any time.
John: Can you give us an example using this word?
Anutida: Sure. For example, you can say... ปกติแล้วกินข้าวกันที่ไหนครับ(bpòk-gà-dtì láaeo gin khâao gan thîi năi khráp)

John: Often when you have to give instructions, you have to do so in the form of a list.
Anutida: A handy word for this is แล้ว(láaeo).
John: That means "and" or "then." You can use it to connect different ideas and sentences. Let’s hear some other words and phrases that can help.
Anutida: รบกวน (róp-guuan)
John: This verb means "to bother." If it’s used at the front of a sentence though, it means "please."
Anutida: จากนั้น (jàak nán)
John: The conjunction "therefore."

Anutida: ขั้นตอนที่สำคัญ (Khân-dtaawn thîi săm-khan)
John: "important step"
Anutida: สิ่งแรกที่ต้องทำ (sìng râaek thîi dtâwng tham)
John: "First thing that you have to do…" If someone gives you instructions, you might have to ask for more information.
Anutida: To do that, you need to use question words to ask questions.
