Speak as a Thai
I heard from some student about their spoken Thai , some Thai people said that their Thai is too formal and not really like the common Thai way ....for example in some of Learning Thai books show how to speak “what time? In Thai is “wee laa arai?” เวลาอะไร but Thai people usually say กี่โมง : gii moong?
So one problem when foreigners learn Thai is the book said different from common using and they feel embarrassed when speak to Thais and they don’t get it ( speak as a book!)..that is very interesting for me!
