Lesson Transcript

Welcome to ThaiPod101.com’s learn Thai in three minutes. The fastest, easiest, and most fun way to learn Thai.
สวัสดีค่ะ ดิฉันชื่อรวินท์พรค่ะ (sà-wàt-dii khà dì-chǎn chûue Rawinporn khâ) Hello. My name is Rawinporn.
I’ve just introduced myself in Thai.
In this lesson, you’re going to learn how to introduce yourself in Thai. It’s super easy and it takes ONLY three minutes!
First of all, we have…
สวัสดี (sà-wàt-dii) “hello” สวัสดี (sà-wàt-dii)[1]
Then, if you are male, add khráp. And if you are female, just add khà at the end of the sentence to increase the politeness level.
ผมชื่อ...ครับ (phǒm chûue …(your name)…. khráp)
ดิฉันชื่อ...ค่ะ (dì-chǎn chûue …(your name)…. khâ)
“My name is ….”
Let’s break down this sentence…
ผม(phǒm) and ดิฉัน(dì-chǎn) means “I”.
ผม(phǒm) can be used only by male while
ดิฉัน(dì-chǎn) can be used only by female
If you are male, you should say…
ผมชื่อ...ครับ(phǒm chûue …(your name)…. khráp)
If you are female…
ดิฉันชื่อ...ค่ะ(dì-chǎn chûue …(your name)…. khà)
ชื่อ(chûue) is a verb means “to name”.
For example, for me… สวัสดีค่ะ ดิฉันชื่อรวินท์พรค่ะ (sà-wàt-dii khà. dì-chǎn chûue {rá-win-phaawn} khà)
If you are male, for example, this guy ศุภชัย (sù-phá-chai)
สวัสดีครับ ผมชื่อศุภชัยครับ(sà-wàt-dii khráp. phǒm chûue {sù-phá-chai} khráp)
Time to practice! Please repeat after me…
Ladies first…
สวัสดีค่ะ (sà-wàt-dii khà)
ดิฉันชื่อ...ค่ะ (dì-chǎn chûue … khà)
Good job. Now it’s the guys turn…
สวัสดีครับ(sà-wàt-dii khráp)
ผมชื่อ...ครับ (phǒm chûue … khráp)
Good job!
Now, it’s time for Rawinporn’s hint… ta da…!
You can shorten this sentence to…
ผม/ดิฉันชื่อ...ครับ/ค่ะ (phǒm/dì-chǎn chûue …(name)… khráp/khà)
You can omit the subject phǒm/dì-chǎn in this sentence. And the level of the sentence is still formal enough for business situations.
For example, สวัสดีค่ะ รวินท์พรค่ะ (sà-wàt-dii khà. {rá-win-phaawn} khà)
Remember… when meeting Thais for the first time, always use formal language.
See… how easy to introduce yourself in Thai! In next lesson, we’ll learn more about greeting and how to “WAI”. See you next time

Hi 😄

I'm starting to learn Thai and I don't know if it's possible to translate my name into Thai or should I say it as it is when introducing myself.

My name's Jovilu. Some call me Jovilu or Jovilu Ann.

Hi everyone,


Thank you. Wayne, your name is written เวย์น 😄👍 เด็กไทย(Thai kids) khâ use at the end of a statement and khá use at the end of a questions both for females speaker. Not easy to create a last name for someone who I'm not familiar with before. I would need more detail of what you want. Please feel free to let me know if you have any future questions. I will be glad to help.


Have a good weekend.

สวัสดีครับ again!

I am sorry to bother you, but I didn’t know who I have to write. Is it possible to create a last name for me? I already have a surname and a nickname, but I don’t know my last name yet. Could you give me some tips, please?

I really want to go to Thailand soon!

สวัสดีครับ!

I wanted to ask you, because sometimes ค่ะ is pronounced as khà, especially in this video. But I already know the difference between khâ and khá.

Thank you very much for your videos they are very helpful!

สวัสดีค่ะ คามิวลี่ and Jarood


Thank you. ขอบคุณค่ะ Jarood, your name would be like จะโรจน์ but จาโรจน์ would be more common and easier to call. There are "oo " so I think it โอ not โอะ. Please let me know if you have any future questions. I will be glad to help.


Have a good day.

สวัสดีครับ

How could I write my name? I'm confused.

To pronounce "Jarood" would be "Yarod", But there is no final sound in D.

I think that a=สระ อะ, o=สระ โอะ.

ขอบคุณครับ
