Free Printable Lao Alphabet Flash Cards

Sometimes when you can't find the resource that you need online, you create your own. So I created printable Lao flash cards. And since they are useful to me, I'm sure they've got to be useful to at least one other person on the Internet.

So a few notes about the flash cards. There are two groups: consonants and vowels. The back of each card has an approximate Romanization of each letter. I got the translations from a different web site, and the translated sounds aren't exactly quite accurate. So until I have audio files of the Lao alphabet on this site, I'd suggest that after you print out the cards, you go to a site where you can hear the sounds of the Lao alphabet -- especially for the vowels; they can be tricky.

You can print the flash cards on card stock, or you can do what I did in the photo above: print them on regular paper and then cut and past onto index cards.

And just like everything else on this site, I appreciate your feedback so I can improve.

You can download the consonants here and you can download the vowels here.

I like that you used different colors for the vowels and consonants. One suggestion to make the consonants even better is to color code them into high, middle and low classes. For example, green for low class, blue for middle class, and purple for high class.
