Appears to be an excellent book for learning Cambodian the way it is spoken and written today.
The transliteration system used is the best and easiest to understand of any I have come across so far though it does have it's problems.
The description above is good but fails to mention that the audio content of the course must be obtained(free) online. It can be live streamed or you can download it. This will present no problem for those that own a computer or other such device.
Unfortunately I do not own my own computer and must depend on the public computers of Seattle Public Library. These computers have a 90 minute a day time-limit and I need that time for other Internet activities including writing to my new friends in Cambodia.
I have been able to study Cambodian on Transparent Language website which SPL provides free on the database computers with no time limit. Though Transparent's transliteration system is incomprehensible I have been making progress learning spoken Cambodian or Khmer has it is listed on Transparent making notes and using my own transliterations from the spoken Khmer provided by the voice of a native speaker on the site.
The Cambodians are a warm and wonderful people. This is a language well worth learning.
