Burmese language study

I’ve been asked a few times recently where you can learn Burmese. Here are a few suggestions:
1.      If you are in Singapore, NUS Extension runs a beginners course if there are enough participants [although note that the course is based on the transliteration, not the Burmese script]

2.      Burmese by Ear, by John Okell is a free online resource

3.      John Okell’s set of 4 language books are an excellent, comprehensive resource

4.      There is a new Burma/Myanmar Language Learning Facebook group, to keep you up to date on courses that are being run.  For more information on courses being run in 2013 and other available resources, see ‘Learning Burmese: courses and resources 2013’ posted by Justin Watkins on the facebook page
