I always explored to work on our ethnic languages. At my time in UCSY, I even wrote a proposal for maintaining ethnic languages of Myanmar.
I had a chance to supervise Master thesis of a Sgaw Kayin (Sgaw Karen) language speaker (Naw Zin Mar Lar Win, is currently studying at IIT, India). I urged her to digitize Sgaw Kayin- English – Myanmar book for Sgaw Kayin learners (

I will try to find out who compile this book.


Thanks to her efforts, it happens to be invaluable resource.
Sgaw Kayin_English_Myanmar

This book is prepared in

This is meant for research and academic purpose and kindly give credit to us if you use this resource.

I promise I will try to find time to share such kind of resources.

Dear Blog,

I didn’t post new things for a long time. During these days, I have gone through many things.

1. I compensated five millions to Ministry for my 5 years study in India and resigned from University.

2. I worked with Dr. Anna Zongollowicz for three research projects

      Conducting of Pre-Implementation Knowledge, Attitude and Practice (KAP) on Child Labour
      Study on Child Labour’s Rapid Assessment in an Industrial Zone in Yangon
      Impact of Migration on Children on Myanmar”

Each project duration was short. I have been learning the new experiences (interview, workshop). I have good opportunity to meet noble monks, nuns, organizations and people who are working for welfare of children.

3. I am learning sewing on pants at School of Home Science, Department of Social Welfare http://www.dsw.gov.mm/en/welfare-category/women-welfare-services. I made trousers for Mom and Bro.

This is a vocational learning center for ladies and gents (Rare). If one looks at the Gate of this school, it seems so silent. However, there are different sizes and ages of ladies/girls actively learning the courses. The courses offering are knitting, sewing for different subjects(blouses, trousers, coats), food and sweet of Chinese, Myanmar, Korean (KOICA), flower arrangements, embroidery, etc. Now, tThe courses are inexpensive and open for any enthusiastic person. My mom is also learning sewing for blouse. I LOVE TO LEARN. Now, I find a place to learn many things.

I wish the long lasting of this kind of schools.

And I heard that a person can join as teacher to this school after learning 6 subjects.

4. I made a beautiful crochet coat for Sis.

5. I am going to learn again at University of Economics!
I have told you, I love learning! πŸ™‚

6. I have been contributing (for Myanmar(Burmese) ) for Little Prince Multilingual Project. It is machine translation project for the languages (not limited) Myanmar(Burmese), Croatian, English, French, Hindi, IndonΓ©sian, Khmer, Lao, Thai and Vietnamese . The project is lead by Dr. Vincent Berment.
Kindly leave a message if you are interested. You are warmly invited!!!


7. Most important, I am searching a job !!!



I have been to these universities April 23, 2014

Filed under: Conferences and Workshop that I attended,Mylife,University — hhh123 @ 10:30 am

I don’t know myself. I keep smiling whenever I step on the land of a university (even just a visit or learning something),
I love university and its environment. I keep wanting to go and attend any university. This is my forever wish. I’m not tired of learning. If I am rich, I will keep taking any class πŸ˜› (at least any language class, cooking, sewing ).

Until now, I am not a good teacher to go as a visiting teacher. My friends always argue that I don’t want to share my knowledge.
Actually, I am not a good speaker. So I couldnot persuade my students’ interest in ordinary class. In Myanmar, to keep students/somebody interest, is a tough job. These days, students are not much interested in studies. If they don’t show interest, I get bored of telling something, then I skip and try to end it. I know it is a bad habit I have.

I am a little bit capable at guiding/helping in research. Recently, WinThuZarKyaw won a paper award. NiLarWinMon got credit in her master thesis. My remarkable students I met during (2008-2014) are ThandaWin, NawZinMarlarWin, HtooYaMoneOo . There are many students who run away from me. πŸ˜›
Whenever I have a new student and need to polish how to do research, I remember Prof. Kavi Narayana Murthy’s words (Not to be a very good student to be researcher, but to be regularity in studies. Keep thinking whenever we drink,eat or sleep, about our research, one day It will tell us. ) To cheer my students, I used to reiterate his words . πŸ˜›

I like to be a researcher. But I’m not good at writing. However, Many professors I met are excellent writers. Prof. Peter Warr said “Research is fun. It’s like playing game.” I also feel the same. πŸ˜›

I have been to these universities (visit or learning/teachings somethings )

    1. University of Computer Studies, Yangon, Yangon Region, Myanmar
    2. University of Foreign Languages, Yangon, Yangon Region, Myanmar
    3. Mandalay Technological University, Mandalay, Mandalay Region, Myanmar
    4. University of Computer Studies, Mandalay, Mandalay Region, Myanmar
    5. Computer University, Mandalay, Mandalay Region, Myanmar
    6. (Surprise! I also don’t know why 4 and 5 have different names.)

    7. Dagon University, Yangon Region, Myanmar
    8. University of Hyderabad, Hyderabad, India
    9. Osmania University, Hyderabad, India
    10. Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore, India
    11. Indian Institute of Technology, Mumbai, India
    12. International Institute of Information Technology, Hyderabad, India
