Chineses language continues to make inroads in Cambodia with the founding of the first Chinese-language kindergarten for Cambodian students in Phnom Penh on Wednesday.
Chhung Ching Kindergarten has the capacity to support 80 instructors and more than 3,000 pupils, according to material published by the Press and Quick Reaction Unit.
“We have a large number of ethnic Chinese in Cambodia,” said Ek Tha of the PQRU.
“It is a powerful language across the globe.” Cambodia’s first Chinese-language Confucius Institute opened in 2009, paving the way for more linguistic grants from the Chinese government.
