Thermal energy is temperature. Temperature is measured as the average kinetic energy of each particle, as a atom is always moving. The faster the atom's movement, the more energy, the higher the temperature. Thus, thermal energy is transferred when a fast moving atom comes into contact with a slower moving one, thus giving it some of its energy, making it move faster, making it hotter.
