I know this is not your particular area of language, but..... I am trying to learn Cambodian (bot) and I was wondering if you could point me in the best direction for learning this language. I have no one close that speaks bot and I need to learn it with little support from friends and neighbors.

What would be the best way to learn?
Hi Customer and welcome back to Just Answer.

If you are looking to learn the total language, including reading, writing and speaking, take a look at some of these online programs:

Since you don't have many people around you who speak the language, you can practice with new friends online:

This will be helpful, as the words and phrases are written phonetically for you, in English:

As you already indicated, you are aware that the best way to learn a language is to surround yourself with native speakers and listen to it/hear it as frequently as possible and practice speaking. Try to seek out any particular neighborhoods or stores where you know Cambodian people live/work, and that might be a good way to find some practice partners.

I wish you much good luck with your new language endeavors!
