    Thick-skinned In Thai?

    So can I conclude that อย่างหนา, หน้าหนา, หน้าด้าน, ไร้ยางอาย are generally used negatively as in ‘shameless’? To use thick skinned positively in Thai, use ใจเย็น ใจกล้า etc?

    Thick-skinned In Thai?

    Shameless is ไร้ยางอาย. Donno what the ‘rubber’ is doing in here.

    Thick-skinned In Thai?

    Read somewhere thick-skinned in Thai is yangna. ยางหนา or ยางหน้า? Or something else? Can it be used both positively, as an encouragement, or negatively, as in meaning shameless?

    Valid pronunciations of 'กวน'

    Very simple: ว right between two consonants serves as a อัว vowel, e.g., ขวด, รวย. The top little fish in between is omitted but is necessary for words with no final consonant, e.g., หัว, ตัว.

    Thai TV dramas with transcript Thai subs

    Go YouTube and search for ‘toolmorrow’. You will get about ten interesting Thai docu videos or so with Thai subs.
  9. The most sane way to go to the Govt Complex in CW is take the SRT locomotive train to Laksi and then hop into a motorcycle taxi to go there. Cheap and fast. Traffic jams are largely irrelevant. Have to check train timing though.

    Can't correctly pronounce the high tone

    While it is true that most Thais use 'start-high-go-higher' for their high tones, foreigners don't have to follow suit—just go plain soprano and you'd be fine.
