The best way to get over the initial culture shock of Laos is to learn a few simple words. These new words or phrases will always be conversation starters--especially if you say them wrong--and will open the door for some friendly interaction. They will also get you in the habit of using body language when verbal language isn't enough. No matter what, don't get frustrated when your pronunciation isn't perfect--the locals just want to hear you try. Give it a try, and they'll get your message without much trouble.
