International vs Local context At the Tree House we ensure that wherever possible, teaching topics are related to our schools locality. For example History and Geography lessons relating to Cambodia and Arts/Crafts/Music related to local craftsmanship. Our programs aim to acknowledge the context in which our students learn in and draw on their personal experiences, cultural backgrounds and identities. We offer a weekly Khmer Language course covering the following areas: • Alphabet and number recognition • Vocabulary development • Speaking and Listening - General phrases • Reading - simple script • Cultural studies - Traditional stories, songs and dance
