Check out Google Books (plenty of public domain books)

Burmese Reader (1894)

Kanewai:

A Burmese by Ear (a free course)

Cornell has a nice site for Burmese Script Animations, but they only cover the consonants.

This omniglot chart shows the vowels and tones.

Asia Pearl Travels - Free online colloquial Burmese lessons. It was written by an engineer, not a language teacher.

Lesson 33 deals with the script, and includes all those other markings and swirls and things.

speakeasy:

The So You Want To Learn A Language website contains a list of materials for studying Burmese.

I assume that you are familiar with the Routledge Colloquial series of language guides, for which the scope is often deliberately limited to meeting the basic communication needs of a traveller. The audio files are now freely available.
