What’s new? The new international school

There are many English education centres around Phnom Penh.  Have you ever thought about which school you  might want to attend?

The American Education Center (AEC) is a new English-language school in Phnom Penh that has been authorised by Dynamic Education (DynEd), a successful and world-   renowned learning company, to make use of its English-language coursework programs.

Founded in the United States by     a team of language teachers, engin-eers and artists, DynEd developed the world’s first computer-assisted language learning software and received a patent for its innovative design in 1987.

To contribute to the development of human resources in this country, AEC has spent more than four years working with this overseas partner to develop an effective solution for teaching English to Cambodian students.

Janet English, the centre’s director, has been an expert on DynEd educational tools for six years.

The AEC is located at No. 7E, Mao Tse Tung Blvd., Sangkat Boeung Keng Kang I, Khan Chamkarmorn.

Inside, the school looks a bit small, composed of three buildings with just four classrooms and four lab rooms.

The AEC employs 15  staff members and has a maximum class size of 25 students.

Heng Chan Molika, a secretary at the AEC, says:  “The American Education Center is different from other schools.  Many schools teach using traditional rote memorisation, but AEC takes an interactive, multi-media approach to learning.

“ We provide students with the chance to practise listening, speaking, reading and writing, under the instruction of foreign teachers from Anglophone countries like America, Australia, England and Canada.”

Like DynEd, the AEC understands the natural processes through which students acquire language skills.

It uses the latest technology to help students develop effective and efficient English communication skills.  Beginner, intermediate and advanced courses are provided, all at a reasonable fee. The courses being offered for the third term in 2011 are School English Advance Study, General Adult English Advance Study and Business English Advance Study.

Heng Chan Molika says the AEC takes children as young as 10 and allows all pupils to choose the time between Monday and Friday most convenient for them to study.

The school also provides weekend courses for students who are busy during the working week, he says.

“We endeavour to advance the development of human resources in Cambodia, especially with regard to English-language skills, which are becoming very important.

“Many investors are coming from Europe and America and need to be able to work with Cambodians who can communicate well in English.”
