    Hi, your website looks professional but look at your khmer writing was misspelled. Check khmer dictionary before publishing. Thank you

    Sethey-

    Why you used the mad icon to represent your post? Are you mad at the fact that some Khmers cannot read our own scripture? It is not our fault that we do not have the skill to write Khmer. Although I will try my best to learn what I can form that url you have posted. :)

    Ok first of all, it is not my website. I just found it on the net that I thought might be useful for people. Also, if you aren’t interested just ignore it. I am not saying every khmer people have to know and read khmer. Don’t miss understnd. I am only trying to help. Ok?

    later!!!

    I want to personally thank Sethey for pointing attention to this site. Our culture starts with our language and without the preservation of our language, it would be the deterioration of our culture.

    Thank you for bringing that site to our attention. Like I said before, this site can be helpful if you have the same accent as the person who’s speaking. For me, its not the same. I’ve learned part of the alphabet and it came to my attention that some of the letters that the guy was pronouncing was different than the way my dad taught me. I asked him why and he told me that different Khmer people pronounce and speak differently in different part of Cambodia, just like in America with the English language. You might say “so what, learn to read and write anyway” but that’s impossible. If you learn to read and write with a different accent you can confuse your words, that’s what my dad said anyway. He advised me not to learn it from there because the accent that I have is from Phomn Penh and others are from wherever.

    But this is not to discourage others from going to the site and checking it out. I think you should check it out, but take notice and see if its the same accent as yours. Otherwise, you can be screwed.
