Learn to count in Khmer

I don't really have a method for learning to count in Khmer. I just work by logic.

I first learn the numbers from 0 to 9, then I learn the numbers by tens and a few hundreds and thousands. I think it's already not bad and even enough to get by in a conversation with a Cambodian because I can't see myself learning big numbers like "12,023" or "489,764" -_-
