Notes for BAMA Sentences

● Here we use Romanization from John Okell Burmese by Ear (BBE) (click here to download audio & pdf).
● To learn a language is best not to compare it with other languages. However, for my convenience, in this section, I am comparing them to English.
● Please Read Me.
● Before you start with our lessons, reviewing BBE and BBE appendixes are a good idea. BAMA lessons are basic exercise, with the assumption that you understand the basic scripts, tones, romanization, rules, and things that were covered in BBE appendixes.
● Please always mind the voicing and other basic rules.
