The application Khmer4You includes basic words from different categories for everyday use and is the perfect companion for Cambodia travelers who want to make themselves familiar with the Khmer language.
The Khmer language consists of 33 consonants, 24 vowels and 14 initial vowels. Many of these sound quite unusual to our ears and can be spoken fluently only with lots of practice. But don't give up hope if you struggle with some of the pronunciations: during the development of this app we had lively discussions among our Cambodian participants, who themselves could not always agree on how a word or sentenced should be pronounced! Thus, we decided to include four different speakers for each term - two female and two male voices. The four different tones make it easier for the listener to get a feeling for the pronunciation of the Khmer language.
But that's not all! Further features of this app are:
► Dictionary with translations from German to Khmer
► In six relevant categories
► Each vocabulary has a sound file that includes the spoken work recorded from
► Four different native speakers - two female and two male voices
► A language quiz
► Overview of the most important temples of Angkor
► Single view of these temples including a brief description and the Google Maps location
► Travel Tips for your trip to Cambodia
The development of the app Khmer4You:
The app was developed collaboratively by young students from Germany and Cambodia in the context of the "Intercultural Innovation Camp". The iiCamp is an international event camp for intercultural competence and takes place every year in Siem Reap, Cambodia. (http://www.iicamp.org)
