The Pre-Intermediate BEA kids and Teacher Sarith have been buzzing around all week long getting ready for their group poster presentations about Cambodian illnesses and remedies. As part of the Pre-Intermediate course, students spend two weeks learning how to describe common illnesses and medicines for them, as well as how to give advice to their friends and foreign visitors when they are sick. After these speaking and listening lessons, students then prepare a group presentation in which they choose 4-5 Cambodian illnesses, such as malaria, dysentery, dengue fever, among many others, and then describe their symptoms and remedies for them. Such topics are part of BEA's program goals which include increasing awareness about health issues and connecting our language program to the daily lives of our students. As usual, Teacher Sarith did an amazing job preparing her students for these presentations and the BEA kids made her proud with their creative presentations.
