I found an awesome piece of text I read today and we are going to make this post a bit interactive. That means that everybody can help each other out. The idea about this is that people can challenge themselves while learning Thai together in a fun way. I will take the discussion to facebook but the people participating get (for what it is worth) FULL credit on this webpage. The original post can be found right here. I hope that many people find this fun in one way or another, learn something from this, and that we can do this more often 🙂
Even if nobody participates actively on the facebook topic I will reveal the answers at a later stage anyway it will still be fun 🙂 You can answer on the corresponding FB thread right here and I will add the correct answers and credit to the person who answered correctly underneath the question in this post!
