What are some tips to learn Khmer literature?

Chhe Visa, 22-year-old student at Cambodia International Cooperation Institute
“Cambodians speak Khmer fluently on a daily basis, but reading literature is more challenging. Understanding the definition of words helps us use them the correct way. Try reading more to improve your knowledge.”


Tep Srey Neav, 20-year-old student at Khmer University of Technology and Management
“We should keep reading stories that are written in Khmer. Grammar books are especially helpful in learning Khmer literature. I also tend to practice new interesting words on my friends.”


Ouong Sreymom, 23-year-old student at National University of Management
“I have no any special tips but I like learning new words. Reading helps me with my spelling and pronunciation. Sometimes I attend extra classes in Khmer literature to improve my grammar and avoid further mistakes in writing or speaking. ”

Ouk Reaksmey, 19-year-old student at University of Health Science
“We need to first understand the underlying meaning of the text, andanalyze each character. Doing research online is also helpful, as there are many discussion forums that we can tap into. We should learn the smart way, not just by being hardworking.”


Kun Rath Chamreounpich, 21-year-old student at Cam-Ed Business School
“When reading Khmer literature, a good way to remember new phrases or words is by re-writing them in a notebook. Learning word definitions and pronunciation can be done with the aid of a dictionary. Read voraciously and make an effort to go in-depth into the story’s details.”
