Lesson Transcript

Hello and welcome back to Thai weekly words with me Prathana. This week, we would be learning about life events [เหตุการณ์ต่างๆในชีวิต - hèet-gaan dtàang dtàang nai chii-wít ].
[เกิด - gòoet] “to be born”. [ฉันเกิดในเดือนสิงหาคม - chăn gòoet nai duuean sĭng-hăa-khom] - “I was born in August.” I am a Leo
[การสำเร็จการศึกษา - gaan săm-rèt gaan sùek-săa] “graduation”. [วันสำเร็จการศึกษาสำหรับคนไทยถือเป็นวันสำคัญมาก - wan săm-rèt gaan sùek-săa săm-ràp khon thai thǔue bpen wan săm-khan mâak] - “Graduation Day for Thailand is a very important day”. So you find that the graduate actually wake up at like 4 AM in the morning to get the makeup and hairs done to look the best on their graduation day. That’s how important it is for Thai university students and graduates.
[ได้งาน - dâai ngaan] “to get a job”. [เขาเรียนจบปุ๊ปก็ได้งานทันที - khăo riian jòp bpúp gâaw dâai ngaan than-thii] - “He got a job as soon as he graduated”, what a lucky guy!
[แต่งงาน - dtàeng-ngaan] - “to marry”. [เจ้านายของฉันแต่งงานแล้ว - jâo-naai khǎawng chăn dtàeng-ngaan láaeo] - “My boss is married.”
[เกษียณ - gà-sĭian] - “to retire”. [ที่เมืองไทยคนส่วนใหญ่เกษียณที่อายุ 60 - thîi muueang thai khon sùuan yài gà-sĭian thîi aa-yú hòk sìp] - “In Thailand, most people retire when they are 60 years old”
And that’s the end for today’s Thai weekly words. We are happy to hear your questions or comments. So if you have any, please let us know and we will see you in the next Thai weekly words, bye.
