About the Cambodian Language
* The Khmer people migrated from what is currently Thailand into the Mekong Delta area.
* Cambodian is classed a member of one of two groups within the Austro-Asiatic language family of which Vietnamese is another, the Mon-Khmer subfamily and after Vietnamese.
* Learning to read and write the Cambodian language can be potentially fun and rewarding, as one has to learn how to write Cambodian characters. It is a visually beautiful and often poetic script, and can give the apprentice a useful insight into the Cambodian mind. But be, be forewarned and prepared for a long learning journey as you’ll need to memorize over 2,000 characters to read a Cambodian newspaper!
* Khmer is the official language of Cambodia where it is spoken by approximately 13 million people and is also the second language of the indigenous hill tribes and minority groups in the area.
* There are also approximately 1 million and 1.4 million native Khmer speakers in Southern Vietnam and Northeast Thailand respectively.
* Due to the geographical proximity and cultural connection between them Khmer has come in close contact with Thai, Lao, Vietnamese and Cham. The main difference between Khmer and the languages from neighbouring areas is the fact that it is not a tonal language.
