Favorite thing: Learning a little burmese is the thing to do even if it is just the basics like 'Mingalaba' (the standard greeting for foreigners) and 'jei-zu tin ba de' (thank you). Of course there are the LP phrasebook (but i've never found those very helpful except for the extreme basics). There is also a little phrasebook that you can find in Burma called 'Mingalaba'. Similar to the LP phrasebook.
And then there is the book i'm struggling with now...Well, i can tell you , it isn't easy.. *sigh* . But i'm finally making some progress thanks to this book that came out late 2006. I found it in a thai bookstore. It comes with 3 cd's and i've loaded all of them into my mp3-player. Great exercise on long bus rides in this country... 'Burmese for beginners' it is called . It teaches how to read & write burmese as well as of course how to have a proper conversation.
