It is true, that all the languages it contains, as there are:
Khmer (Kampuchéa, Cambodia, Kambodscha)
are phonetically very difficult languages, as they all are based on a kind of "singing the language".
From Burmese which has 3 tones, Khmer which has combinations of consonants that are difficult for non-Kmer to produce, Lao which has 5 distinct tones, Thai with 5 different tones too, and Vietnamese which has six carefully pitched tones...
It seems an impossible task for foreigners to master those systems.
In spite of the difficulties there are every year more and more "Farangs" who try in a certain way to get inside the languages. But reading - that is another pair of shoes!
But here we have a help.
Food and Drink
Emergencies & Health
and after that You will also find a small two-way-dictionary of each language.
The important of this book is not to learn to speak the local language correctly, but in regions where English is not so well spoken, You can point out what You need or want or want to say in it.
Because apart of English text to the left and local language on the right - in the middle all is nicely printed in the more than difficult scriptures of the country You are in!
And that, friends and co-travellers - is something that's not sooo easy to find in a booklet so handy, cheap, pocketsized etc...
What do they say about it?
>>Handier than chopsticks, cheaper than a cyclo ride, tastier than a chilli & lemongrass noodle dish, this phrasebook gets you everywhere.<<
And it really does!
Word of an irremediable globetrotter.
