“You can say that again”

Saturday, July 21, 2007 at 5:20 pm Leave a comment

Last night, I was happy to learn that English and Thai both have similar expressions to agree with somebody.

English: You can say that again!
Thai: พูดอีกก็ถูกอีก!

My naive first try, คุณพูกได้อีกครั้ง, is apparently a worthless translation. So don’t do that.

Anyway, hopefully, this will help both Thais learning English and anglophones learning Thai to speak more natively.
