Burmese has two styles of speaking and writing: the colloquial style, which is used for talking to friends and for writing letters, and the literary style, which is used in more formal contexts, such as academic articles, newspaper reports, and narrative passages in fiction. This volume, one of four in the complete language course, introduces learners to the literary style. It assumes a prior knowledge of Burmese script and a grounding in the colloquial style.
