As you have probably already seen in the table, each weekday is preceded by a วัน [wan] (German day).

There is one more thing you should note about the days of the week:

In German one usually says at theMonday, at theWednesday etc. In Thai you always leave out the preposition in this case and just say Monday or. Wednesday.

You can take a look at this in the following example table. You should keep this subtlety in mind when translating from German to Thai.
