Lesson Transcript

Hello, guys! I'm Jay, and today we are going to do Thai Holiday Words.
So today, we are going to do Chakri Memorial Day. Ok, let's begin!
1. วันจักรี (wan jàk-grii) “Chakri Memorial Day”
Chakri Memorial Day, or in Thai, วันจักรี (wan jàk-grii).
วันจักรีตรงกับวันที่ 6 เมษายนของทุกปี (wan jàk-grii dtrong gàp wan thîi hòk mee-săa-yon khǎawng thúk bpii) "The Chakri memorial day is on the sixth of April of every year."
To give you more information about this day, Chakri Memorial Day is actually the anniversary of Chakri Dynasty.
2. รัชกาลที่ 1 (rát-chá-gaan thîi nùeng) "King Rama I"
So the next word is "King Rama I".
รัชกาลที่ 1 (rát-chá-gaan thîi nùeng) or ร. 1 (r. nùeng).
So, you know that Thai name is very long, and when it comes to King's name, it's even longer.
So our Rama I's full name is พระบาทสมเด็จพระพุทธยอดฟ้าจุฬาโลกมหาราช (Phra Bat Somdet Phra Phutthayotfa Chulalok Maharat). That is his full name.
รัชกาลที่ 1 เป็นกษัตริย์ผู้ก่อตั้งราชวงศ์จักรี (rát-chá-gaan thîi nùeng bpen gà-sàt phûu gàaw dtâng râat-chá-wong jàk-grii) "King Rama I is the founder of Chakri Dynasty."
3. ขึ้นครองราชย์(khûen khraawng râat) "Be enthroned"
This word is only used for Kings only. Even for English word, "be enthroned" is only used for Kings, right? So the same.
รัชกาลที่ 1 ขึ้นครองราชเมื่อปี พ.ศ. 2325 (rát-chá-gaan thîi nùeng khûen khraawng râat mûuea bpii phaaw-sǎaw sǎawng phan sǎam ráauy yîi-sìp hâa) "Our King Rama I was enthroned in the year 1782."
4. ราชวงศ์จักรี (râat-chá-wong jàk-grii) "Chakri Dynasty"
ราชวงศ์จักรีคือราชวงค์ปัจจุบันของประเทศไทย (râat-chá-wong jàk-grii khuue râat-chá-wong bpàt-jù-ban khǎawng bprà-thêet thai) "Chakri Dynasty is the current dynasty of Thailand."
5. กรุงเทพ (grung thêep) "Bangkok"
ราชวงศ์จักรีคือราชวงค์ปัจจุบันของประเทศไทย (râat-chá-wong jàk-grii khuue râat-chá-wong bpàt-jù-ban khǎawng bprà-thêet thai) "Bangkok is the forth capital city of Thailand."
Before Bangkok, we have กรุงสุโขทัย (grung Sukhothai), กรุงศรีอยุธยา (grung Si Ayutthaya), กรุงธนบุรี (grung Thonburi). And then now, I think after that, we moved to Bangkok, which is กรุงเทพมหานคร (grung-thêep-má-hăa-ná-khaawn), or the current capital city of Thailand.
And that is the end of today's Thai holiday word.
