There are phonic confusions between Thai and English. English speakers learning Thai and Thai speakers learning English struggle especially with P and B sounds. So, for example, when learning the English word CRAB, students must learn the mispronunciation to avoid when, say, ordering an entreé in a restaurant. “I’ll have the crap, please” is a faux pas you just don’t want to stumble into.
