Learn Thai vocabulary 

สถานี /sà-thãa-nii/ = station


  • สถานีตำรวจ /sà-thãa-nii tam-rùad/ = police station
  • สถานีรถไฟ /sà-thãa-nii ròd-fay/ = train station

ต่อไป /tòor-pay/ = next


  • ครั้งต่อไป /kráng tòr-pay/ = next time
  • คนต่อไป /khon tòr-pay/ = next person
  • คิวต่อไป /queue tòr-pay/ = next queue

Please note that, you can also use the word หน้า /nâa/ as the word next. It is quite a bit less casual.

When you put these 2 words together, it means
/sà-thãa-nii tòr-pay, sà-thãa-nii Asok/
“Next station, Asok Station”
