I have decided to make a serious effort at learning Khmer and have a question for those that have mastered it: should I learn the squiggly bits first or just stick to trying to learn to speak and listen?

Plus, you'll also be able to read signboards and navigate more easily, all by yourself.

Where in western languages messing up the vowels gives you an accent only but is understandable by most, messing up the vowels in Khmer makes your speech incomprehensible to most Khmers. In English, the consonant structure is the key to speaking, in Khmer, it is the vowels. Learning to spell out what you hear really helps in this.
