Lesson Transcript

INTRODUCTION
Eric: Must-Know Thai Social Media Phrases Season 1. Lesson 8 - Feeling Exhausted.
Eric: Hi everyone, I'm Eric.
Jay: And I'm Jay.
Eric: In this lesson, you'll learn how to post and leave comments in Thai about being exhausted. ฟ้า (fáa) feels exhausted after a long day at work, posts an image of it, and leaves this comment:
Jay: ทำงานเหนื่อยจัง (tham ngaan nùuea jang)
Eric: Meaning - "I'm so tired from work." Listen to a reading of the post and the comments that follow.

เอ็ม: ไปเที่ยวกัน! (bpai thîiao gan)

Eric: Then comes the phrase - "I'm so tired."
Jay: เหนื่อยจัง (nùuea jang)

Jay: (SLOW) เหนื่อยจัง (nùuea jang) (REGULAR) เหนื่อยจัง (nùuea jang)
Eric: altogether, "I'm so tired from work."
Jay: ทำงานเหนื่อยจัง (tham ngaan nùuea jang)
