This is the textbook I use for the Intermediate and Advanced classes at the University of California-Berkeley (and UCLA). It's especially geared toward Heritage students (people of Khmer descent who grew up in the West speaking Khmer but never learned to read or write it) but also appropriate for non-natives and Heritage speakers alike who have attained a "survival" level of Khmer speaking proficiency and have already mastered the basics of reading and writing.
