Lesson Transcript

Hello, welcome to Thai weekly words with me Prathana and today, we will be learning about bugs and insects [má-laaeng] in Thai.
The first word we shall see is [phûeng] bee
[sà-măi dèk chăn gluua phûeng mâak] which means when I was young, I used to be scared of bees.
The next word is [mót] or ant.
[nai hâwng-khruua mii mót dtem bpai mòt] there are ants everywhere in the kitchen and that’s scary.
The next word is [nǎawn-phǐi-sûuea] or caterpillar
[nǎawn-phǐi-sûuea dtua níi gam-lang jà glaai bpen phǐi-sûuea] this caterpillar is transforming into a butterfly.
The next word is [má-laaeng-sàap] or cockroach. This is the worst insect of all
[mii má-laaeng-sàap gàw yùu bon phee-daan] there is a cockroach on the ceiling.
The next word is [yung] or mosquito. In Thailand, there are a lot of mosquitoes because the weather is warm and everything. When it gets dark and they will come out a lot.
[dtaawn-yen khuuan rá-wang yung gàt] You should be careful not to get mosquito bites in the evening
