Myanmar is related to Tibetan and has a different set of grammatical and syntactical terms than those of the West.
What is great for novices is that it has its own font and that it is a tonalanguage. The screenplay may seem puzzling at first glance, but the systematic grading of the lessons allows the pupils to study it without great difficulties after a few short months.

An example: the term that is pronounced like tung means "basket" when it is pronounced with a high tone height, and "mountain" when it is pronounced with a low tone height. There is a similar characteristic of German, but it is used for a different purpose: see the differences in pitches between the words "greenhouse" and "green house".
