Learning Khmer

Whether you’re here in Siem Reap for work or leisure, learning the local language will enhance your stay. Lost in translation moments will be a thing of the past, and you’ll benefit from getting to know local friends and colleagues in their native language. With several options, ranging from one-on-one tuition, language classes, conversation exchanges or online learning tools, there is a path for everyone.

Classroom Learning

Classroom learning offers a structured approach to learning the language and benefit of experienced teachers to familiarize you with the basics, or beyond, with others at the same level.

Speak Like Khmer offers courses of lessons introducing beginners to daily conversation and the basics as well as lessons by Zoom, and free learning events.

Free classes and groups

Free classes and groups are a great way to pick up conversational Khmer phrases and meet others doing the same. Pronunciation in Khmer is particularly integral to the language, and practice with native Khmer speakers will help you on your way.

Peace Café: Free Khmer conversation lesson at the Café on weekend mornings, Fridays & Saturdays 3pm – 4pm.

BlaBla Language Exchange: Keep an eye out for these Siem Reap events encouraging those wanting to converse with others in various languages. Let the group know which language/s you’d like to practice and you’ll be matched accordingly. This is a social way to keep up your language skills between lessons. Twice a month at Footprint Cafes.

Online and app-based learning

Online and app-based learning can be great for those short on time, or for specific vocabulary. Practice on the go or in your own home, at your own pace.
