The Small Difference

German Deutsche Version

I remember when I first started to learn Thai and came across Thai block letters I had no chance to decipher them. A small dot makes an "M" a "P" or an "D" a "K".

Having been taught these characters since early childhood, it´s easy for Thais to distinguish the tiny difference, but for me it´s had been a major obstacle.
But vice versa it´s the same. For a Thai (or Lao in this case) print shop employee an “n” looks pretty similar to an “h” and an “e” resembles a ”c”.
Just sometimes I wonder why people use two different versions on the same bill. Maybe that way at least one is correct.
