I'm Hmong. I know how to speak Hmong and write in it 80-90% of it. I was born in Thailand, and lived there for the first 6 years of my life. But now I live in California, USA. All of my aunts, uncles, and my parents know Thai, but only some know Laos. My mom is my Thai Lakorn translator. I understand some Thai, but very bad at it.
