Vincent Van Gogh

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 mean Americanize.

Van Gogh should be pronounced Van Goch, if in doubt, the rule is ask the person, not some guy who can't be bothered to learn to pronounce it.
Jesus loves you...Mexico is great, right? ;)

Yet oddly if you visit the Van Gogh collection in Holland, even the curators will pronounce it as Van Go when speaking English... we also saw the collection in Vienna, same.
