    Easy Picture Captions for Beginners

    In the Intermediate Learners Forum, we have Picture Stories from the Thai Rath newspaper. As these can be quite difficult at times, I thought we would have a go at re-writing some of the captions in easy sentences for beginners. We will choose a picture to re-post with one simple sentence as a sample. Then we invite other people (either beginners or intermediate), to come up with their own sentences based on what they see in the picture. It doesn't have to be true. For example, you could say "the bear ate the pig's legs".



    (1) หมูน้อยมีสองขา The little pig has two legs

    Any more simple sentences for this picture?

    Is the simple sentence grammatically ok? I would expect with the number two also a classifier?! May be that I'm wrong but for legs I would like to suggest the classifier ข้าง. Thus:

    หมูน้อยมีขาสองข้าง

    Slightly better? Otherwise I'm highly appreciating further examples, stories, using such simple sentences. Coould you continue with this sort of "lession"?

    Is the simple sentence grammatically ok? I would expect with the number two also a classifier?! May be that I'm wrong but for legs I would like to suggest the classifier ข้าง. Thus:

    หมูน้อยมีขาสองข้าง
    Would this be translated as "The little pig has legs two sides"?
    Btw, the classifier for leg is still ขา.

    It might be too formal and textbook-like. In colloquial speech, the classifier is usually left out.

    On true sentence must fill classifier to this sentence. But normally will try to cut of some word but not change meaning.

    Try another picture.



    - พวกเขามองอะไรกัน What are they looking at?
    ...sorry that joke. But it not wrong. Everyone can make many sentence from this picture. Because main intention is try to make sentence. It can improve your skill.

    How to say. "They are looking for the waiter bringing the kung chae nam pla."?

    พวกเขามองกรคนเดินโต๊ะการนำกุ้งแช่น้ำปลา ??

    And apologies in advance for my poor (grammar) knowledges of Thai - would be nice if somebody could explain what I made wrong (potentially 10 things in a single sentence ).

    Let me correct it.

    "พวกเขากำลังมองหาพนักงานเสิร์ฟที่นำกุ้งแช่น้ำปลามา "

    mostly correct. A few wrong is from verb grammar. When verb has -ing. You must say "กำลัง" every time. -ing alway use when that sentence is "Present Continue Tense",right? Use "กำลัง" at the same event.
    (And sorry to my english too. It a bit lag. But I will try to improve my skill too. =w=)
