Plant the seed in school, harvest the fruit at home and in society – The Aii LC Philosophy

Aii Language Centers (Aii LC) was built upon the philosophy of how a seed planted in school will grow and bear fruit at home and in society. Over the last decade, ten thousands of students have received quality education from Aii LC. The continuous growth in enrollment each year has led to the necessity for the school to expand into new locations in the near future.

Over the last five years, Aii LC has established the second campus in Toul Kork and the third in ChakAngreKrom. Alongside this established growth, the founder, Oknha Dr. Mengly J. Quach, is also planning to expand five additional campuses to satisfy the increasing demand.

Mr. Sophea M. Lay, Vice President of Aii LC, stated, “Oknha Dr. Mengly J. Quach, has always been keen on providing good knowledge and education to the new generation, based on the support of the parents and guardians of the students at our school. We believe the new campus will be established in late 2017 or 2018 at the latest.” To date, the total amount of students at the three campusesareover 6,000 students, with the number continuing to increase year-after-year.Since there is a growing demand of Chinese language,the school administrators have decided to launch the Chinese Language Program at ChakAngre Campus for the upcoming term (November 27, 2017) with up to 100% scholarship. In addition, ToulKork Campus will continue to offer up to 100% scholarship.

To push a country’s growth with sustainability depends on its human resources being equipped with real knowledge and virtue, not just knowing their own language. “We have to learn one or two more languages. That is why Aii LC was established with its aims to provide foreign language courses, including English and Chinese, combined with other general knowledge subjects for students at all levels,” commented the Vice President. He further explained that the excellence of students’ learning experience at Aii LC is truly born from the quality of education they receive and the school’s innovative education program.

AiiLC’s students have always shown an active interest in social activities, including fundraising events forKanthaBopha Hospital, poor children, the elderly and homeless people. The students have also donated their own money to helptheMengly J. Quach Foundation in raising funds to build a public school building, which was the Mengly J. QuachToulBeng Primary School in Kampong Cham. The school was inaugurated recently and is currently in use by under-privileged children in that district.

“Aii LC has a level of quality of education similar to schools in many developed countries. This quality of education is due to their classrooms, which are equipped based on American standards, their constantly updated and revised textbooks and curriculum, and of course their teachers, who are not just native and near-native speakers of English, but also certified and qualified in the education field, trained in outstanding teaching techniques, and sensitive to multi-cultural conditions as well,” concluded Lay.
