THAIS KEEN TO LEARN BURMESE LANG

Interest in learning Burmese language is on the increase in Thailand in the wake of the neighbouring country’s sweeping reforms that led to encouraging prospects of foreign investments in the once-isolated Southeast Asian country, Channel News Asia reported Friday.

“There has been a quite number of people who are waiting for me to open a new course,” Daw Than Than Myint, Burmese teacher at Chulalongkorn University of Thailand, was quoted as saying by CNA.

Learning Burmese becomes a fashion in Thailand because Thais see it as a tool to communicate with Myanmar tycoons whose first destination for vacation is Thailand and to work in Myanmar which is expected to see a large spike of foreign investment in years to come as the country’s recent reforms have brought back the attention of multinational corporations to the country.
