I’ve been teaching ESL for about five years and I am still learning about Burma every day. Our ESL assistant is always teaching me new things about Burma. When I first started teaching, I thought all of the Burmese were the same. Burma has over 100 different ethnic groups. In my class room, we have three different ethnic groups; Chin, Karen, and Karenni. Here is a website that discusses the history of Burma and the different ethnic groups.
