T

he Australian Center for English inaugurated a Law and Business English course

which will be taught to selected students from the Phnom Penh Faculty of Law and

to officials at ministries.

US Chief of Mission Charles Twining made a

speech at the opening. After greeting the students in Khmer, French and English,

Twining told them: "Law is the basis of civil order and progress. "Without law

there is only chaos and anarchy. It is important that Cambodian students have

access to various world languages. It helps to expand understanding of the body

of law world-wide."

Twining thanked the Dean of the Faculty of Law for

his support.

The US government is providing funding through USAID, and

the Asia Foundation.

Hillary Kammerer, a teacher with ACE, has organized

the curriculum and will supervise the school over the next eight months. Four

months of the course will focus on legal language, and four months will be spent

teaching business English, she said.
