Any recommendations on good book or tutorial? I am looking for something that will allow me to learn at progressive stages.\ˈfäk-sē\April 28, 2010 at 12:09 am #377899
There are several youtube video link. I found this to be helpful for beginners http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6gsrLxOr4NU&feature=player_embedded
I learned from the 1-5th grade book loan to me from a generous Khmer family while attending Cambodian church.
I also used captions on karaoke for help. For daily practice once you got the alphabet down, go to read from RFI or RFA news. http://www.rfa.org/khmer and http://www.rfi.fr. Another great reference is bongthom site. http://www.bongthom.com/akonline/selectchapterek.asp
They used to have scanned first grade story book up, or maybe I mistake that for another site which I can’t recall.
Then get the Orkid Khmer-Englis/English to Khmer dictionary.
Once you’re advance enough to read, for correction pronunciations and spelling, download the Somdach Choun Nat dictionary from the Buddhist Institute http://www.budinst.gov.kh.
It took me a few months to be able to start reading. After a year, I was able to read the bible. Eventually, once you’re good enough you can start learning Khmer-Pali and read the Tripikata or Buddhist text

Interactive cds and workbook. The material is on the right of the website. There is a begginner, 2 inetermediate and 2 third year. E-mail the professor to order. សំបូរ SamboMay 10, 2010 at 5:54 am #377923

Khmer Karaoke—becareful though, some productions don’t know how to write correctly.May 10, 2010 at 5:26 pm #377930
LOL I think Khmer Karaoke is even too advanced for me; but I could see how it would be a good way to learn if everything was spelled out phonetically.\ˈfäk-sē\
