Syllables are based around consonants. Vowels are indicated with diacritics which can appear above, below or around the consonant letters. When they occur on their own or at the beginning of a word, vowels are attached to the glottal stop symbol (the final letter in the third row of consonants).
Lao is a tonal language with 6 tones. The tone of a syllable is determined by a combination of the class of consonant, the type of syllable (open or closed), the tone marker and the length of the vowel (see below).
For some consonants there are multiple letters. Originally they represented separate sounds, but over the years the distinction between those sounds was lost and the letters were used instead to indicate tones. Various offical reforms of the Lao script have reduced the number of duplicate consonants.
There are no spaces between words, instead spaces in a Lao text indicate the end of a clause or sentence.
Written Lao is based on the dialect of the Lao capital, Vientiene.
There is no official Latin transliteration system for Lao. In Laos, French-based systems are used and there is considerable variation in spelling, particularly of vowels. In Thailand, the Royal Thai General Transcription is used. Educated Lao people can also read written Thai.
Used to write
Lao, a Thai-Kadai language spoken by approximately 15 million people in Laos and Thailand. It is closely related to Thai and speakers of Lao are able to understand spoken Thai without too many difficulties. Thai speakers find it more difficult to understand Lao due to lack of exposure to the language.
Consonants are divided into three classes which help to determine the tone of a syllable (indicated by the numbers below). The sounds represented by some consonants change when they are used at the end of a syllable (indicated by the letters on the right of the slash below). The consonants can all be used at the beginning of a syllable but only some can be used at the end of a syllable.
The consonants in the final row are compounds and conjuncts used as alternatives to the basic consonants.
Vowel diacritics (with k)
Open syllables Closed syllables *
unmarked short vowel long vowel
Class 1 low mid high falling high low falling
Class 2 low rising mid low falling high low falling
Class 3 high mid high falling mid high falling
* Closed syllables are those ending with p, t or k

I have come across this Thai-Isan-Lao Phrasebook before, but I despair at this stage of my life of ever getting far in the study of any language. I will leave it for you to decide on its merit.
The Christian site, The Living Hour, is still promising to release an English-Isaan (Isan) Dictionary that might well prove an asset.
For me, I am resigned to never studying the language until I have the reality of being in Isaan. It has been over five years since I was last in the country, and I cannot even begin to conjecture when I might again enjoy that wondrous land. Presently complicating that scenario is my surgery of less than three weeks ago after tearing the quadriceps tendon right clear of my knee cap (patella). I cannot even go outside the house for a walk, let alone ponder doing any international travel.
Okay — I admit to be feeling somewhat more negative of late than is my custom. Perhaps refer to an earlier post on the subject of the Isaan language — you may find a reference there of help to you. Just go to Categories, then Books, and then Isaan language.

A young and naive Englishman, John Truscott (Hugh Dancy), goes to the British colony of Sarawak, Borneo to try and apply his father’s work to the Iban society. He tries to civilize them, building schools and providing education for the Iban people. He is met with unfamiliar local customs. Selima (Jessica Alba) becomes his “sleeping dictionary,” who sleeps with him and teaches him the language and the habits of the locals. Despite their intents, the two find themselves falling into a forbidden love.
