    Any recommendations on good book or tutorial? I am looking for something that will allow me to learn at progressive stages.

    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

    Good luck

    Hi there thank you for the useful information; I just finished Grade 1 lesson 3 and it was an eye opener.

    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.
