In English, when using an adjective we place it before the noun. “A red car” is a good example; the adjective – red – modifies the noun – car.

In Thai, the adjective comes after the noun:

รถแดง (rót dɛɛng) – literally “car red.”

Here are some adjectives you can play with:

สวย (sǔuai) – beautiful
รวย (ruuai) – rich
ร้อน (rɔ́ɔn) – hot
ใหญ่ (yài) – big
แพง (pɛɛng) – expensive
