Let the journey begin! Let’s fasten our seatbelt! We at the learning center Takeo in Cambodia are currently embarking on a new small initiative. Including our teachers, staff members and the Head of Learning Center, we believe that it will qualitatively enhance and maybe transform our learning center.
‘Let’s Speak English Campaign’ is a little step and starting point for the bigger upcoming steps of qualitative progression we plan to take for the learning center. It is the forming part of efficient language application mechanisms helping students to create their own English-speaking environment. Here, they can right away apply their newly acquired English language skills from different sources, be it from teachers, books, online material or other sources.
During the campaign, students are inspired by a video featuring a young talented Cambodian-born girl speaking fluent English. They are encouraged to speak English as much as possible with their peers, teachers, and everyone else in their classrooms at the learning center. Speaking Khmer is to be kept to the minimum. We have convinced the students to practice speaking English and showed them how they can do it. Although we are most likely to struggle with the implementation and enforcement of this initiative to create the desired outcome we strive for and we firmly believe that the improvement of our student’s English skills is just further down the road. And, we are ready to keep going against all the odds!
