Learn Khmer Language The Right Way
Within this book we aim to teach you Khmer language that you can actually use in Cambodia. Read on your PC, Mac, smart phone, tablet or Kindle device.
Colloquial Cambodian provides a step-by-step course in Cambodian as it is written and spoken today. Combining a user-friendly approach with a thorough treatment of the language, it equips learners with the essential skills needed to communicate confidently and effectively in Cambodian in a broad range of situations. No prior knowledge of the language is required.
The aim of this volume is to provide the student with a thorough command of the basic structures of standard spoken Cambodian. The course is based on the audio-oral method of language teaching developed by the Intensive Language Program of the American Council of Learned Societies and used successfully during World War II, but modified to take into account advances in language teaching techniques since that time.
This is the best and most complete Cambodian-English dictionary published. It would be nice if it were released again, there is a need for a work this comprehensive in scope.
Khmer is the official language of Cambodia and is spoken by over 85% of the population. The two most important dialects, Standard and Phnom Penh, are both represented in this course. Romanization is used throughout Volume 1 but Khmer script is used exclusively in Volume 2.
This volume consists of four parts: (1) The Cambodian Writing System, a formal description of the relationship between the writing system and the phonology of the language; (2) Programmed Reading Exercises, a series of highly structured reading drills to train the student to read all regular Cambodian word shapes; (3) Beginning Cambodian Reader, fifty reading selections, graded in length and difficulty, ranging from short, simple narratives to essays on various aspects of Cambodian culture; and (4) Cambodian-English Glossary, containing some 2,000 words.
This work is reissued as an aid not only to students of the Cambodian language but also to Cambodians residing in English-speaking countries. The glossary includes some 10,000 words, with definitions that are useful and complete at a general level, beyond the specific context of the published readings that the glossary was originally designed to accompany. Although less comprehensive than a dictionary, it fills an important purpose as an inexpensive aid for speakers of either language.
This is a continuation of our Khmer Volume 1 language learning course. Khmer is the official language of Cambodia and is spoken by over 85% of the population. The two most important dialects, Standard and Phnom Penh, are both represented in this course. Romanization is used throughout Volume 1 but Khmer script is used exclusively in Volume 2.
