I speak “Nidnoi” Thai and I’m not proud of it


Recommended Posts

How many of us came to Thailand with good intentions to learn the language? How many of us actually made good on those intentions?


In all fairness, it can be easy enough to get around Thailand without learning the language, especially in large cities like Bangkok. If you stick to touristy areas such as Sukhumvit and Silom, there isn’t much need for Thai to get what you need. That isn’t the point though, and deep down we know it.



You’re missing out on so much


We miss out on so much when we can’t say what we want to say, and we can’t understand all that is being said. You might find yourself complaining about the way things are here without fully understanding Thai culture. One large key to understanding the culture is actually learning the language. Things start to click once you can fully understand Thais when they explain why things are the way they are here. Not that it will ever make 100% sense to us as non-Thais, but it definitely helps give a much clearer point of view.


When people ask you how long you’ve been in Thailand, the follow up question is usually “Can you speak Thai?” For many people, the answer starts with an uncomfortable laugh, followed by “Nidnoi” or “Just a little bit.” After a while, the joke just gets sad and old. There really is no excuse to not learn the language at this point.
