This is a lesson for reading practice. First, listen how the အာ "a"  vowel  combined with the consonants at the word level is spelled out and pronounced. Notice that "á" vowel is sometimes read as a neutral vowel like in "bá" of  ဗမာစာ"bâ ma za".  Also remember that the voiceless consonants like "s" are liable to change to a voiced consonants at the word level.  For example see  "s" change to   "za" in the word  ဗမာစာ  "bâ ma za."
