Khmer is the language primarily spoken by Cambodians. Young people prefer to learn English over other European languages and are generally keen to practice. Most market vendors and shop keepers can speak enough English to carry out transactions, however the calculator is often used to translate prices. Some elder people speak French from the colonial days, however the Khmer Rouge targeted those fluent in foreign languages so it is uncommon to find a fluent French speaker. Some people in the tourist industry speak Japanese.
