EP6: Prefix นัก (nak) to talk about professions and expertise
Access the accompanying PDF in my Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/posts/ep6-prefix-nak-58015763 นัก is a prefix that you put in front of verbs or nouns and it creates the meaning of “ profession”. For example: นักเรียน (nák rian). นักเรียน means student. เรียน (rian) means “to study”. So the nak prefix + to learn = student. If you know the word that comes after nák then you will be able to guess the meaning! The formula is นัก (nák) + verb or noun.

EP4: Asking for confirmation with Thai particle เนอะ (ner)
To get the accompanying PDF visit our Patreon page: https://www.patreon.com/posts/asking-for-with-57200943 Here you will learn to ask for confirmation with Thai particle เนอะ (ner). Most people learn their first Thai particle when they are already intermediate or even advanced. I don't agree, I think it should be learned as soon as possible because, since most Thai particles don't have the equivalent literal translation in another language, it takes time to master. Without Thai particles, you will never sound fluent in Thai. :) Website: https://thaiwithgrace.com/ Youtube: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCtxPNb4l4rf4msU-oD-Abqg
