    I recently got a job as an interpreter for a refugee and immigration agency and I will be assisting someone on Wednesday. We will be speaking about the library. This will be my first “official” interpretation gig. Prior this I have always just assisted family friends and relatives, so I’m ^*&( nervous!

    Can you guys suggest some things they might say or if you were going to the library what you would ask. Of course I need you to ask me or say things in Khmer. (duh.. lol):)

    Thanks guys! <3

    Tell them (in Khmer) that it’s not ok to surf the internet for porn and not to talk so loud. Also, advise them thai lakorn is not available to be checked out.

    Good luck.

    good questions.
    if I may add…

    – Is there a khmer speaker working in this library?
    – will there be someone who can help my child with his/her homework?
    – If there’s a book i want to read but the library doesn’t have a copy, will they order it?
    – Besides books, what other materials are available at this library? are there movies and Khmer Karaoke DVDs?

    – Are Khmer classes offered at this library?

    thanks for all of the suggestions. I will practice these :)

    Has anyone ever had a moment where they say something and it didn’t come out the way they wanted?

    or said something stupid?

    Like: I wanna eat corn

    Kyum chong nyum pote (I want to eat corn)

    but someone misheard or cannot understand?

    Kyum chong jee papoug (i want to ride a cloud)
