Spoken Burmese is a fascinating language as multifaceted as this gem of a country, with its levels of politeness and honorifics that take the person spoken to into account. This tonal language has two registers: high and low. As the Burmese are passionate about the importance of their language, most English words are turned into exclusive Burmese words. Myanmar is a land of cultural references to the past, with its golden ‘pagodas’ and temples, exquisite and rare gems, and stunning monuments. The language is thus deeply ingrained in Burmese culture and is gaining popularity in the western world. Learn this amazing language and travel to the ‘Golden Country’!
Burmese is one of the few languages in the world that does not use spaces between words. Instead, words are separated by a thin vertical stroke to create the illusion of a continuous line of text. This can make reading Burmese text difficult for beginners, but it also lends the written language a distinct appearance.
