After months of planning, recruitment, and renovation, Aii Language Center- Siem Reap Campus is officially inaugurated today and is now ready to provide excellent educational services to people in the land of Angkor Wat.
The launching ceremony, which started at 8:30 AM today, was presided over by Neak Okhna Dr. Mengly J. Quach, the founder, chairman, and CEO of Mengly J. Quach Education, Mr. Sophea M. Lay, President of Aii Language Center, and Ms. Leakena Kong, the Campus Director of Aii Siem Reap.
The event was also attended by Aii’s staff and teachers, members of the local and international media outlets, and the public who came to witness the magnificent milestone in the province’s educational history.
Aii Language Center- Siem Reap Campus occupies the former Le Trefle Angkor Hotel, located in Siem Reap City, only 15 minutes’ drive from the world heritage site of Angkor Wat. The facility has been renovated by the Design and Construction Department of the Mengly J. Quach Education and equipped with the latest learning tools, transforming the building into an advanced learning complex for Aii’s students.
Speaking to the press, Dr. Mengly said establishing an Aii campus in Siem Reap, the first project of the leading educational institution’s extension outside of Phnom Penh, is a great pride for him and his staff.
“Our plan is to expand to all provinces and cities in Cambodia,” he adds. “Siem Reap is our first target, and it will be followed by Battambang while we are looking forward to more campuses in other locations.”
Meanwhile, President Sophea M. Lay said this achievement would have not been possible without the continuing support from students and their parents as well as Aii’s teacher and staff, who have been working tirelessly to bring superior education to Cambodian children and adult alike.
Ms. Leakhena, the Campus Director, said Aii Language Centers is committed to continuing to provide the highest possible quality of education by combining international and local standards to provide a locally relevant, 21st-century curriculum.
“We offer a wide range of English and Chinese language programs to meet the varying needs of learners of all ages and levels, from kindergarten to adult learners, and from absolute beginners to TOEFL candidates,” she said.
Ms. Leakhena added she is looking forward to the first time Aii Language Center- Siem Reap Campus opens to the public, which will begin on July 25, 2022.
“Our classrooms and campuses are designed with the comfort, well-being and safety of our students in mind. Our aim is to provide a friendly and open atmosphere with wide-open spaces where our students can study, learn and exchange ideas in many ways.”
