Not for Beginners!

If you are well on your way in one of the following languages:
Mandarin, Cantonese, Burmese, Korean, Vietnamese, Lao, Khmer, Tibetan, Uyghur

You might be interested in Radio Free Asia. If you're a beginner, then just bookmark it and come back later.

Interestingly enough, my computer and browser are displaying the Lao, Vietnamese, and Uyghur correctly, but not Burmese, Khmer, or Tibetan. I know, though, that I have installed fonts for Lao and Vietnamese, but not for the other 3. I think Uyghur might be using the Arabic script. I know nothing about it though, but it looks like Arabic to me.

My browser (Firefox 2) does not display Thai though. And I did have trouble with one Lao site, so that is why I was surprised to see that I had no problem with the RFA site in Lao.

  1. I have Firefox 3 now and it looks like Thai, Lao, and Tibetan are displaying properly now. Still no luck with the Burmese and Khmer.


No profanity. Please be considerate of others. Thank you.
