Burmese: An Introduction to the Spoken Language, Book 1
Burmese: An Introduction to the Spoken Language, Book 2
John Okell
These two volumes focus on early encounters with Burmese speakers and cover survival needs and first conversations. They give a solid grounding in the grammar and sound system of modern colloquial Burmese, with short lessons that enable flexible pacing and extensive practice. There are many speaking exercises and practice dialogues on the tapes, with review lessons at frequent intervals. The Burmese material is presented in both Burmese script and roman transcription throughout. Included also are notes on etiquette and social behavior in Myanmar, cumulated vocabularies in both Burmese-English and English-Burmese and additional vocabularies arranged by topic, e.g. names of clothes, foods, conversing with Buddhist monks, etc.

In particular, it offers the use of tapes to make the link between the symbols you read and the words you hear and say, with readings from original Burmese materials and appendices on handwriting and cursive forms, ornate lettering, the Burmese names of the characters, Burmese alphabetical order, and common abbreviations.
