Seasons in Thailand
There are 3 main seasons, rainy, cool and hot season, in Thailand
* "Yes" and "no" are often also indicated by simply repeating the verb. So if the question was "Do you want to go ?", it would be answered by saying "want" or "don't want", rather than "yes" or "no". Chai is an general word for "yes", but it's less used than it's English equivalent. Men can also use krap, and women ka , to indicate agreement. These are the same words used at the end of sentences to be polite.
** Pom is the polite way of saying "I / me" for man in Thai, di-chan is the equivalent for women. You're never likely to offend anyone by using either of these words, but there are also a lot of other words for'I/Me' that can be used depending on the situation.
There's a similarly large amount of words for "you". Khun is the most common, and is a safe word to use when speaking to just about anybody. Tan is a very respectful word, used when talking to someone of markedly higher status than you in Thailand (e.g. a high court judge, or a Buddhist monk). Ter is more informal than khun, it's used when talking to friends.
