Thanks for posting this. I've been looking for something like this for Lao everywhere but couldn't find anything. Will you be posting any additional lessons for LAo?

Hi Nick,
Glad that this is helpful to you. These are the first guides we've made and expect that there will be new ones in 2007. It's more likely however that we'll make basic travel phrase podcasts in new languages before we get onto more advanced stuff for the existing languages. Maybe some of the links above can help you out?

yeah the download was great and not just boring word=word or phrase=phrase easy to listen to like a song to remember. wish there was more lao lessons. i know its more of a travel starter but a language course like this would be great. keep it up.

Nice lessons for learning Lao language!

This is really nice, glad there's something like this. Been meaning to try the language as I have some friends at work that are fluent in it.

I found your site is really interesting. Thank you very much.

  Fasial May 17, 2008 8:25 PM


Thanks very much for these, they are great!

I just have oe question, in iTunes, the number 10 comes after number 1, before number 2, 3, etc, how can i fix the numerical order? It's driving me crazy!

Thanks again for this great resource.

i'm ushering delegates from LAOS and hopefully i'll be able to have their respects and they r happy while they're here...

I believe there is a new school in Luang Prabang for foreigners to learn Lao? Does anyone know of the name or any information about this school?
Many thanks for your help

Im laos and im proud and laos is a little hard to speack but it pretty easy.

  Sabrina Jan 30, 2009 3:52 AM


Hi sorry if i'm being thick but is it possible to actually download these files to an ipod. Mine isn't a touch so i can't get the app. Everytime i click on the link or the word podcast it just opens in another browser window and starts playing. Help please, i leave in a week for SE Asia and really want to take these lessons with me.

Hi Debbie,
Right-click on the link and choose 'save as'.
This will save the mp3 file to your computer.
