What is language acquisition? Language acquisition is the process by which humans acquire the capacity to perceive and comprehend language, as well as to produce and use words and sentences to communicate.

Can an infant be bilingual? It is entirely possible to teach an infant two or even three languages, and four is not unheard of. Cambodian’s speak Khmer, which is not an international language, thus Khumers need to think like the Swiss or Belgians, small country but outside contact is absolutely necessary for certain classes of society.

Kindergarten children enter school at many different learning levels. Kindergarten teachers are responsible for recognizing each child’s past experiences, maturational level, and developmental route. As previously stated, the first purpose of assessment is to adapt the curriculum and activities based on each child’s developmental level. For example, a kindergarten classroom is divided into three groups: above grade level, on grade level, and below grade level.

Building a Classroom Community

Why build a classroom community…

Children in Cambodia want to feel loved, just like all children. Although, parents in Cambodia often work long hours to provide for their families, therefore finding the time to give their children undivided attention becomes difficult. Cambodian children might often act-out because their needs are not being met at home, of course like all children they crave attention. Building a classroom community not only increases learning but also improves behavior. Children who feel part of a classroom community are more likely to learn in school and less likely to interfere with the progress of others.
