Online Khmer Language learning is a Win-Win
Taking advantage of Covid19 pandemic,
there is no other time easier to learn the Khmer language online. Adapting to online learning never been been easier and convenient. You got to study your language from you are whether you are, whether you are at home or at your office. You don’t have to travel and expose yourself and your tutor to Covid19. Now the Delta Variant is on the rise and much more contiguous than the Covid19. Andrew is one of many of our students who adapted his language learning online with our school. He will share with you some good tips for effective leaning his language online. You can do it too. Together we fight Covid19 pandemic.

Covid19 pandemic restrictions preventing us from coming to our classes, but that does not mean we can not continue our language teaching and learning. Online learning adaptation allowed KF to continue to help our students with their language learning. Online learning adaptation produced the same learning outcome for many of our students who are willing to adapt to online learning platforms. In the pictures are of our students’ comments on their progress, illustration of their language capacity and satisfaction of their learning impact. Together we will fight Covid 19 pandemic.

Like the classroom learning, online and E learning required commitment and discipline of the both the teachers and students working hard together.

The number of Corona/Covid 19 cases in Cambodia has increased from 1 at the end of January to 114,4th April 2020. This crisis puts us all in a difficult situation for face to face tutoring. In order to comply with our government regulations on social distancing and isolation, Khmer Friends adopted a new way of tutoring our students through online platforms like Skype, Zoom, Facebook Messenger or Whatsapp. At first it felt a little challenging, but then we started to feel more comfortable and now we find it quite convenient. Below are the 5 REASONS why you should consider having your classes online, which we collected from the comments of our students who tried online classes:
1) It is very convenient for me because I don’t have to leave my house.
2) First I was concerned about the sound quality, but after I tried a couple of sessions, I found a way to make the sound in my phone and computer clearer and teachers are now able to help correct me when I say something wrong.
3) After the online classes I can play the recorded sessions over again and again in my own time. This helps me to remember words or sentences better.
4) The good thing about online learning it that I can be wherever I want to, at home in bed, on the couch, at my office desk or in a coffee shop.
5) Online classes are a win-win solution for us all in this hard time of the Covid 19 pandemic, because I keep learning the language, while at the same time helping my tutors and the school to be able to continue their business.
