Our Campuses - Prey Veng
The Prey Veng campus is the second of two branches set up for private working students, therefore it shares most of the teaching dynamics in Kampong Cham. The similarity that cuts across all three branches is the curriculum structure. The lessons at Prey Veng are usually held in the evenings and weekends to cater to the work schedules of its students. Prey Veng is a smaller and less developed town compared to Kampong Cham, but it still provides a comfortable and convenient residence. There are some monasteries in town, giving volunteers a good opportunity to interact with the local monks. They are always very keen to chat with foreign teachers to improve their English. Typical of Khmer hospitality, most will not hesitate to invite you into their commodes to show you around and share their meals with you. Female volunteers just need to bear in mind that physical contact is prohibited. But this small consideration is no barrier to the warmth that awaits you in these generous, friendly people. Volunteers have also spent time in a local orphanage with funding by a Australian organisation, reading to the orphans, and playing with them. A local internet cafÃ© set up by an NGO also offers free internet access, thus providing another means to while away your time as you prepare for the evening classes. Though a seemingly quiet and uninspiring town, past volunteers have sworn that Prey Veng boasts of her own hidden, untouched beauties that await only your exploratory spirit. Accommodation and Food Volunteers stay in one of the guesthouses near the campus. The facilities are very comfortable, and are similar to guesthouses found in Phnom Penh. Volunteers eat at local restaurants and laundry is done at the local cleaners. Csku reimburses the costs of these. For a source of constant amusement, try dining at what we affectionately call "The Shouting Restaurant" and you will understand its namesake!
