    I feel bad for the children. They’ve lost their language and are losing their culture before they even get a chance to embrace it. One of the parents in the video said that he couldn’t force Khmer upon his children because they didn’t like it and preferred Laotian, what a lame excuse. Children, at a young age, adopt and recognize whatever speech patterns they are exposed to since birth. If the parents spoke Khmer themselves, this wouldn’t have been a problem.

    hmmm I don’t know why the parents spoke laotian to them…is not like they were forced to speak it…they only had to speak laotian when they had to do business. Is sad…they are in Cambodian land yet the younger generation will forget its language as an adult.

    Truly is sad that we Khmer have no respect for the language of Khmer. Those children are the product of their environment.

    Khmer Krom and Khmer Surin are the real Khmer.

    Its the parent’s job to teach their kids to speak Khmer! All of those being interviewed in the video has no one else to blame but themselves!

    Many Khmer kids aren’t speaking AND don’t speak Khmer.
    Sorry,I didn’t specify.
