White Boy Learning Burmese

The journey of an average white guy trying to learn a non-Indo-European language

Myanmar Basics Episode 1- “Myanmarsar Overview”


For all of you other “white people” (and other foreigners in general) who are learning Burmese, I’m starting a series on YouTube where I go over certain things about the Burmese language, and I am starting off by giving a brief overview of the writing system (ျမန္မာစာ) and I’ll be delving into the individual parts of the system later on.

    • ျပင္ေပးတ့ဲအတြက္ ေက်းဇူးတင္ပါတယ္။ ဟုတ္က့ဲ တျခားျမန္မာလူမ်ဳိးတစ္ေယာက္ကလည္း ကြ်န္ေတာ္ကုိျပင္ေပးထားတ့ဲေၾကာင့္ အခုေတာ့သိပါတယ္။ ဒီေၾကာင့္ ကြ်န္ေတာ့္ဗေလာဂ္ကုိ ပန္တီးခ့ဲပါတယ္။ ေက်းဇူးျပဳျပီး ျပင္ဆက္ေပးပါဦး။

  2. Ok. One more correction: သူ in modern-day Burmese is generally a gender-neutral pronoun.
