Good beginners book,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Cambodian for Beginners. Book. With English-Cambodian Vocabulary. Book (Paperback)
I find that book really well made. However, it doesn't come with the CDs, which wasn't clear when I purchased it, as the description mentioned them. I need to hear what the words sound like in order to learn them as I want to be able to speak as much as I want to be able to write and read. It's a practical book that teaches you basics, and I find it really easy to use to teach myself Khmer, of which I had no previous knowledge at all. I'm still working on lesson one, but I've memorised most of the vocabulary so far and feel I can introduce myself and make a good first impression when I get to Cambodia in a few weeks. It's the only book I've tried so far, so I don't know how it compares to others, but I like it, I like how it teaches you the proper way to write as well, and I would recommend it. Make sure to get the CDs though.
