The Khmer Alphabet is unique, and considerably more complicated and difficult than its English equivalent. While the latter only has 21 consonants and five vowels, Khmer Alphabet comprises a total of 33 consonants and 24 vowels, which are hard to pronounce and remember at first.

This is the very reason “Learn Khmer Alphabet” mobile application was conceptualised and made. With this app, children can break away from the traditional way of learning the alphabet and ride on to modernity.

The app will teach kids about each of the alphabet and their respective correct pronunciations. The app is seen to encourage more and more kids to enjoy studying the alphabet as it contains lively and colourful interface. Consonants and vowels will be introduced in the most creative and most fun way. Khmer numbers are also part of the app.

With all these features offered by this mobile application, kids can learn fast and be masters in Khmer language – writing, reading, listening and speaking. Don’t hesitate to download this app for your child’s development.

Learn Khmer Alphabet is available for free download on Google Play. The app will soon be introduced to iOS users.

Learning Consonants

There are 35 Khmer consonant symbols. However, two of them are now considered obsolete so the modern alphabet uses only 33. Khmer consonants are not very easy to pronounce and play a big role in word formation as a consonant’s series determines the pronunciation of the dependent vowel symbols. To learn the correct enunciation of these consonants, you can click the sound symbol in the app.


Learning Numbers

Khmer number symbols are quite interesting and intricate. Through the app, you will know how to write the numbers and how to pronounce them. It is important to know how Khmer numbers sound since most of the youngsters now prefer the English numerals.


Learning Vowels

With 24 vowels to remember, it’s really not going to be a piece of cake to learn Khmer language. But with the app, kids can easily absorb the look and the sound of each of the vowels. Same with the consonants, the app also has a ‘sound’ feature for vowels. Kids can repeat the sound until they perfect it.


Learning Subscript Consonants

Unlike other country alphabets, Khmer alphabet has also 33 subscript consonants which needs to be combined with consonants and vowels to create a word. They do not exactly look like consonants, but they’re quite similar. Your kids can also learn those alphabets from the app.


Practice Makes Perfect

After learning the Khmer alphabet and numerals, users can also practice and test their skills. The app features a ‘practice funcion’ which contains several exercises for users to enjoy and learn.
