Tenses allow us to talk about when an action happened, when it began, how long it lasted, when it finished, whether it is still continuing, if it is planned, and so on. With no grammatical tenses available, it can be a headache knowing how to express time concepts in Thai. For both beginner and intermediate students of Thai, this book aims to dispel the idea that Thai has no tenses, and show you how the same meaning of tenses is achieved.
Using tense words, time words, adverbs, quantifiers, prepositions, and a little bit of time travel, you’ll soon be able to say exactly when.
