This is the textbook used for Intermediate and Advanced Lao instruction at SEASSI (from 2005-2011). It assumes no previous knowledge of written Lao, but it does assume basic spoken Lao ("survival level"), usually acquired by growing up in a Lao family in the West, or by taking a Beginning Lao language course. If you have no previous experience with spoken Lao or Lao culture, you should instead check out the Beginning Textbook.
