Lao is the national language of Laos. It is spoken by about 4 million people there, or 80 percent of the population. Lao is closely related to Thai, spoken in neighboring Thailand, the two belonging to the Tai family of languages. There are actually far more speakers of Lao in Thailand than in Laos: about 15 million. In Thailand it is sometimes referred to as Northeastern Thai.
The Lao script is believed to have been adapted from that of the Mons, the people who ruled Burma for many centuries. Its ultimate source was the Brahmi script of ancient India.

I would like to highlight the flexibility of the consultant as a very positive aspect of the 2-day session. In fact the consultant was taking my personal interests and requirements into consideration and adjusted the program accordingly. Since I had the benefit of a 1-week business meeting in Shanghai, prior to this course, the consultant and myself were able to reflect on this 1 week experience and had a very detailed "dive" into the cultural aspects which became apparent during my business trip. Very much appreciate the ability to allow for this reflection of this experience. That made the 2 day course extremely interesting and useful for me rather than just having a "standardized" training. This was not a "1-way presentation" type of training, this was real interaction. Top rating for the consultant!
