    Sawasdee (kha or Krub )when they say It polite sentence
    Sawaddee, Sawaddeejaa ,Waddee ,for close friend or close person to speak.

     

    Your own way sounds correct and polite. I think stick with that! :)

    I greet one friend with "wad dee", but this is only because we are VERY close friends. It'd be too impolite to other people... like saying "Eyyy wassup bro?" to people I don't know well.

    If any of the "s" characters come at the end of a word, they're pronounced as a "t".
