Simply Thai words

How to speak politely

In English, we say "Sir" or "Madam" when we talk politely.

And you have the word "Please" also.

In Thai, we speak polite by saying 'ka' or 'krup' with everyone.

In Thai way, after you finish speaking in a sentence ;

If you're female, you will have to end the sendtence by saying "ka" to everyone, no matter with man or woman.
If you're ma
le, you will have to say "krup" to everyone.

 * Krup sounds like 'club' in English *  

For example
English

She says "Good morning, Sir. (to male), Good morning, Madam. (to female)"

Thai
She says "Sawasdee ka (to male), Sawasdee ka (to female)"
He says " Sawasdee krup (to male), Sawasdee krup (to female)"
