    Many young Cambodians in the West or in Europe do not have a way to learn Khmer literature. Is there a way you can come up with ways to teach these young ones? Many young Khmer now are 2nd and 3rd generations that can not converse in Khmer but quiet understand but poorly. I have difficulty teaching mine. Thanks
