hrough the U.S. Embassy in Phnom Penh, the English Access Microscholarship Program has supported 900 Cambodian students in the area of English language training, and thus, creating access to educational and career development since 2004. The program recruits talented 13-20 year-old high school students from economically disadvantaged communities and provides after school General English classes over a period of 2 years (or at least, 360 hours).
American Education Center was first granted funding to implement the Access Program in 2013 to improve the English language skills of 20 students. It has been remarkably two great years for the participants to have benefited immensely from our innovative approach to English language learning and to also have had the opportunities to participate in various Embassy’s events.
American Education Center is currently teaching other 40 students in the new cohort of the Access program. As always, we have started the program with participants having no or limited English knowledge but after only six months, they are already beginning to find their confidence in communicating in English with both their classmates and foreigners.
