Many Khmer beginning text books do not focus the distinction in depth between Khosak and Akhosak vowels sounds that is needed when annunciate the sound based on the combination of vowel and consonant.

Rather, many text books use an a few words to teach the sounds making it incomplete. Many students came out of the lesson does not have a clear contrast of the different vowel sounds. As a result students have a difficult time pronouncing new words or remember words they encounter before.

So in ReanKhmer, we focus those differences sounds in more detail and add more time to practice. In addition, we use example words as a context to re-enforce the differences. So once the students remember the sounds, he/she can apply them appropriately to new or similar words.
