The language is Khmer known as Cambodian by Western, and the second languages are French, Chinese, and English. But base on authentic societies in Phnom Penh the lingua franca known as business languages is English. If you have been around Cambodia you might be understood, there are thousands of English kindergrarten classes across the country are serving English classes. Furthermore, if those English students want pursue high level they have to travel to town or Phnom Penh the largest and the capital of Cambodia.

Chinese is the family or community language (huge community). For example, when you go to the local markets (Phnom Penh) you will be hearing, seeing mixed sound between Khmer and Chinese. But also it's one of the commerce languages in Cambodia. There are plenty of Chinese schools around Cambodia.

French is a good and expensive language if I compare to English and Chinese. From the past there were plenty Cambodian French speaking like my parents but not me. Because at the time I cannot afford it and right now the number French speaking are less. Moreover, the job opportunities for simple Cambodian citizens are very limited on the other hand, international trading are at the high level.
