Learn To Type Khmer រៀនវាយអក្សរខ្មែរ

This Khmer typing course was prepared by Jared Ratcliff. This course is a great way to learn the Khmer Keyboard (NIDA layout) while practicing the Khmer alphabet at the same time! (Pro tip: Say the name of each letter out loud as you type it.) If you would like an account to save your progress, contact me with your request, as well as your first and last name, and I'll create one for you.

Khmer Lessons

📌 Khmer Lessons on YouTube: a YouTube page with TONS of lessons from a professional Khmer language teacher.

🔤 Alphabet App (Google Play / Apple App Store): learn the Khmer alphabet, vowels in lesson 1, consonants in lesson 2, then combinations of them. Cute songs with each lesson. See the note below.

Important note: Most Khmer vowels are “dependent”, and are attached to a consonant, written above, below, or around. These vowels actually have two sounds, one when used with consonants ending in “a” (ga, ka, ja …) and another when used with consonants ending in “o” (go, ko, jo …).

✏️ Alphabet Flashcards (Google Play): practice the Khmer alphabet sounds. Upgrade to Premium ($5) for more options, and the option to practice with the “moul” font, a popular, fancy Khmer font that looks very different from the standard letters.

More Alphabet Practice: Level 1 (Google Play / Apple), Level 2 (Google Play / Apple), Level 3 (Google Play / Apple), Level 4 (Apple)
