Learn Khmer

Att utforska Asien kommer med stor sannolikhet innebära att man lär sig ett nytt alfabet, vart du än går. Khmer är inget undantag. Khmer har cirka 16 miljoner talare. Det är oerhört viktigt att du ska använda rätt version för rätt tillfälle: det finns olika sätt att prata med varandra, prata med överordnade, till kungliga, till munkar.

Fun facts about Khmer

Khmer is written without spaces, and consonants are stacked on top of each other.

Basic numbers only exist for 1 to 5, so 6 is 5 + 1, 7 is 5 + 2, 8 is 5 + 3 etc.

There is a separate word for 'yes' depending on whether you're a man ('bat') or a woman ('chas').
