Speak Shan

       iOS iPhone

Speak Shan is the first app ever made for learning the Shan language. Shan is spoken by over three million people in Shan State of Burma, northern Thailand, and southern China. The Shan language is also known as Tai and Thai-Yai. It is very closely related to the Thai and Lao languages. The Speak Shan app is based mostly on the dialect of Shan spoken in northern Thailand.

Speak Shan is a talking phrasebook and vocabulary builder. You can hear each word or phrase spoken by a native Shan speaker and see a phonetic transcription that includes tone marks. There are over 400 words and phrases in the following categories:

*Greetings & Basics
*Family & People
*Common Objects
*Body Parts
*Fruits & Vegetables
*Going Places
*Fun Phrases

Speak Shan does not require an internet connection. You can use it anywhere you travel. Take it to the hills of northern Thailand or eastern Burma to surprise and impress the local Shan people. Use it in the market on your next trip to Mae Hong Son or Pai to find the most authentic Shan food available in Thailand.
