The concept of bad language

This is a part of our Cambodia forums to chat about anything Cambodia-related. This discussion forum is at the top of our site because it's usually the busiest part of the expat community chatter with random topics on just about everything, including expat life, Khmer politics, Cambodian blogs we have or have come across, or whatever else our members want to discuss. Whether you're an expatriate, tourist, Cambodian or random traveler just passing through South East Asia, you are welcome to talk about anything or start new topics yourselves.

You could start learning the language now. It is not too late to start.

You've been totally owned about ten times on this thread. Time for some self-reflection.

Can you give us an example of someone who learnt Khmer later in life please? I really need your examples so that I fully grasp your meaning. Thanks

I could give you some examples of young foreigners who learned Khmer very well, before even coming to Cambodia. They are usually camped out in the backwoods trying to surreptitiously spread their word.

I can think of a man who retired and came to live in Cambodia. He has learnt enough Khmer to have simple conversations with Cambodians. Because he does have conversations, he will continue to learn more. In 5 or 10 years time he will probably speak Khmer quite well. So it can be done.

I don't think it is right to name people other than criminals. If he or anyone else wants to speak for themselves, they are welcome.
