WHY LEARN KHMER?
- Khmer is the national language of Cambodia.
- Khmer is widely spoken in Thailand and Vietnam.
- Learn Khmer before traveling to Cambodia.
Khmer is spoken by about 22 million people worldwide and is the official language of Cambodia or Angkor. Just as Angkor is more than its wat, so too is Cambodia more than its temples. The chaotic yet charismatic capital of Phnom Penh is a hub of political intrigue, economic vitality and intellectual debate. All too often overlooked by hit-and-run tourists ticking off Angkor on a regional tour, the revitalized city of Siem Reap is finally earning plaudits in its own right thanks to a gorgeous riverside location, a cultural renaissance, and a dining and drinking scene to rival the best in the region. And don’t forget the rest of the country: relax in the sleepy seaside town of Kampot and trek the nearby Bokor National Park; take an elephant ride in the jungles of Mondulkiri Province; ogle the Mekong dolphins at Kratie or simply choose a beach near Sihanoukville.
Outside of Cambodia, Khmer is also spoken in large parts of Thailand and Vietnam.
Here are some of the basic Khmer phrases that you might use:
- Niak sohk sabaay te? (How are you?)
- Niak jeh phiasaa awngle te? (Do you speak English?)
- Juay hav polih mao. (Call the police.)
