Impact Case Study-English Language for a Better Life Project
The English Language for a Better Life Project is implemented to provide an opportunity for rural students to access the English language course.
August 31, 2018, marked as the end of the school year 2017-2018. CCAFO English Teacher Miss Sat Sokkea and Teacher-Secretary Miss Thea Panha introduce Chea Sophanny, who was dynamic and had good behavior among her classmates. Following is a short progress report about Sophanny.
Chea Sophanny is a grade 5 student at a local primary school. At her school, there is an English language program; but it has not been implemented regularly due to lack of English language teacher. “I am interested in learning English as a second language as my vision is to be the English teacher” she shared her opinion.
When the CCAFO English School opened in mid-2015, Sophanny visited the school and took the entrance examination. Resulted from the test, she was placed in the beginner class by learning the book’s title “English for Children”.
“More than three years, I can write, read and translate some sentences and words, if compared to before I joined the English language course. However, I keep learning this language as long as I can”, Sophanny said. “We recognize that Sophanny made a lot of progress on her English since she started her first class. She always does homework and keeps attending the course. She is a fast learner and an active student, therefore her knowledge is better” Teacher Sokkea and Teacher Panha said. By August 31, 2018, Sophanny was a student in a higher level “Family and Friend Level 1”. In order to reach Family & Friend Level 1, the student needs to join English for Children and then the Family & Friend Level Starter.
CCAFO English Language School team wish her the best, and they believe that she will carry on her higher English level for the next school year 2018-2019.
