For BEA’s teacher training program, the trainees had to teach three speaking classes and two listening ones. To fill up the seats in the classes, we asked our own BEA students to volunteer for the trainees’ teaching practices. Trainees usually had 10 to 15 students in each of their classes, which were streamlined with basic, pre-intermediate or intermediate students. Some BEA students even volunteers every single day during the two weeks of teaching practices! Here they are trying to decide which classes to volunteer for some extra English instruction.
The Bayon English Academy (BEA) is an accredited NGO school that provides English language education, leadership, and job skills programs to underprivileged youth from well-trained teachers in a safe, clean and professional environment in Siem Reap, Cambodia.
