Burmese is the official language of Myanmar and is used as the main lingua-franca in the country, as well as in Burmese communities worldwide. Based on the university’s long-term friendship, in 2016 ANU established the Burmese course, consisting of four language levels which offers a minor degree. This course will equip students not only with a skill of spoken Burmese, but also give a solid foundation of reading skills, in order to support their future research. The lecturer Dr. Yuri Takahashi, has a long experience in language education and is a widely acknowledged specialist on Burmese literature, music and modern intellectual history. Would you like to say ‘hello’ in Burmese? Do you wish to know more about Burmese language? Then join this language tasting session.

This language learning panel is one of the special events in the  program.
