Chum Reap Suor,
The Khmer language is the official language of Cambodia, where it is spoken by the majority of the population, an estimated 14,494,293 people.
A few facts about Cambodia:
- Half of Cambodia’s current population is younger than 15 years old.
- In Cambodia, the head is regarded as the highest part of the body and shouldn’t be touched even in the kindest manner.
- The iconic ancient temple of Cambodia, the Angkor Wat, has been one of the biggest cradles of civilization. It was the largest pre-industrial city in the world with an urban sprawl of 1,150 square miles that probably supported up to a million people.
At Holy Family, we have about 60 students whose families speak Khmer at home.
