In his March 7th set diary entry Jackie said, "While working on this film, I think it's a good opportunity for me to teach you a few words in Thai. Everyday I will share either two words or phrases so that way you can learn along with me."

Here are Jackie's lessons taken from his Official Around the World in 80 Days set diary. Why don't you learn along with Jackie?

March 7

When you say "hello," you should say, "sawadeeka" if you are a woman and "sawadeekup" if you are a man. Practice saying it in front of a mirror and when you come to Thailand, you can say it to anyone you meet. When you say this, you should put your two hands together and bow your head a little. This is the polite way of greeting people.
