The Main Thai Dialects


There are several dialects of Thai although in this web site we use Central Thai, the most common form of the Thai language. The main influencing factors that determine if people speak a dialect are their family, the school they went to and their general environment and neighbourhood.

Thai people do not expect foreigners to be able to speak dialect and almost all would laugh if they heard a ฝรั่ง farang speak dialect.
