SEA Illustrations — Descriptions in Khmer

South-East Asia illustrations as a base
The materials here are based on a set of illustrations of daily routines and activities I'm currently developing for language learning. These illustrations depict life in South-East Asia and should work for Cambodia, Thailand, Laos and Myanmar. Some pictures will also work for other cultures outside of South-East Asia. Eventually, about 50 topics will be covered.

Supporting materials
At the moment, the following supporting materials are available:
