They are quite satisfied,” he said.”I think its a very good sign that China is attracting students from Cambodia, because if the students are satisfied with the Chinese education, they may be good marketing for the education when they come back to Cambodia.”Cultural similarityThe short distance and cultural similarity is another attraction, Pit Chamnan said.”Its easy for Cambodian people to come to China. Food isnt different and the climate is also quite similar to what we have in Cambodia. Our students wont have culture shock here,” he said.However, Pit Chamnan said there are still some challenges and difficulties facing educational cooperation between China and Cambodia, specifically in financing and language.Some Cambodian students cant afford the tuition to study in China, he said. And since English courses have been very common among Cambodian students, they want courses taught in English if they study elsewhere.”Thats why I often talk to Chinese universities. I think they should have international courses, not only for Cambodian, but also for other international students,” he said.An increasing number of students in Cambodia, a former French colony, are realizing the benefits of learning Chinese, he said, adding that Chinese is now a dominant language after English.”Many Cambodian families, rich or poor, want their children to have courses in it,” Pit Chamnan said. “My son is also studying the Chinese language.”Pit Chamnan said the Cambodian government has set an ambitious goal of becoming a medium-income country by 2030 and becoming a developed country by 2050.”The government of Cambodia will put a lot of resources and energy to education because only through education can we realize this goal as soon as possible,” he said.”Thats also why I think people in Cambodia like the Belt and Road Initiative. Its a policy to forge a closer and stronger cooperative relationship on education between Cambodia and China.”8.03KPhotoNight views of Harbin through the lensTibetans take train home after pilgrimage or travellingWorlds largest shaftless Ferris wheel built in ChinaAncient cities to be connected by Xian-Chengdu high-speed railwaySnow turns Harbin into winter wonderlandReed Catkin Festival held in WuhanSocietyPoliticsHot TopicsScience/TechBusinessCover StoryFTZ simplifies process to launch businessesJapan can offer experience, expat saysApplication for work streamlinedAwareness of law aids resolutionAir Force units explore new airspaceLow wages and lack of respect responsible for kindergarten abuse, experts sayLiu heralds UK partnership in education and researchAgency ensuring natural gas supplyUN envoys trip to DPRK praised by BeijingChina moves to secure natural gas supply amid rising winter demandXi asks China, Canada to work for substantial tiesCooperation necessary for success, leaders sayLiving in space: How astronauts train, eat and workTeachers excused for lunchtime drinksWaiting for Shenzhou XICancer agent found in 44 cities drinking waterAt Ikea eatery, its no pay, no stayChina lose 2-0 to Uzbekistan in World Cup qualifier, coach Gao resignsC919 gains another 55 orders, lifting total orders to 785Services offset dip in manufacturingFintech to energize real economy, cut risksChinas Long March rockets complete 60 commercial launchesEngineers achieve breakthroughChina-made components add securityOnline shopping rings up customer complaintsImport expo to focus on advanced techSME mobile market platform receives first clientsChina top importer of US soybeansAir China opens direct route from Beijing to BarcelonaInsurance-based trust launchedDandelion helping to sow the seeds of stability for membersCover storyVisa change may boost tourism to USThe wrong side of the roadBuilding ban begins to biteVillagers call on Japan to atone for massacreMost ViewedTodays Top NewsDelegation salutes Tibet anniversaryOfficials are told to act as anti-graft watchdogsGreat Wall safeguarded in united actionVice minister pledges more efforts to improve air qualityBeijing’s efforts to control air pollution start to pay offChinas military committed to reformNetizens rip singer over baby photosCentral govts growing support for TibetMonument to be built on Tianjin blast siteChina and Russia seal raft of energy dealsIn todays trending, pet dog turns out to be Artic fox, a modern recreation of Suzhous famous gardens sells for $78 million, a classroom is rented out as a hotel, and a public toilet is converted into a restaurant.HighlightsBeijing expects severe traffic congestion on next two daysWe have a heart for themBeijings preparations begin long before the parade starts8 interesting facts about the upcoming V-day ParadeHot TopicsGround level Rule of law Panda China youths Anti-terror drive Family planning Smog Fox Hunt Beijing integrates with Tianjin, Hebei China cracks down on graftSpecialGlimpses of Tibet: Plateaus, people and faith50th anniversary of Tibet autonomous region…| About China Daily | Advertise on Site | Contact Us | Job Offer | Expat Employment |Copyright 1995 -var oTime = new Date();
