Great pocket book for learning Lao Nov 23, 2005
I initially bought this book for the CD which I subsequently found to be very short and not all that usefull. I have however found this to be an excellent book for those wanting to learn Lao. The Phrasebook section has sufficient phrases to get you by at first and the grammar section is good for those wanting to go a little further. The dictionary contains more useful workds than other pocket phrasebooks and as well as containing the words, contains expressions and clarifiers in the dictionary which are very useful. The English phonetic spelling of Lao words is also very good
