The Center for English Studies’ Twelfth Graduation Ceremony

June 8, 2013: The Center for English Studies (CES), responsible for providing various programmes to promote the learning of the English language and to bring students up from scratch for entering UC’s International Track degree programmes, held its twelfth graduation ceremony, presided over by Dr. Kao Kim Hourn at UC Conference Center. Out of 585 graduates, there were 269 females with 41 outstanding students.

CES Director Mr. Pay Chheng How congratulated the students on their success. After giving an overview of the history of the CES programmes, he reminded the students that learning should not be halted although they graduated from the CES. Apart from improving their command of English, they should also learn to manage time, plan ahead, adjust and face the reality, and keep pushing themselves to be better.

In his keynote address, Dr. Kao Kim Hourn shared his life background and work experience with the students. He inspired them to do the best they can and learn to manage and spend their time wisely, for instance by listening to English radio programs, reading English books, and speaking English with each other.

Thereafter, Dr. Kao Kim Hourn, H.E. Samraing Kamsan, Dr. Angus D. Munro and Mr. Pay Chheng How conferred certifi cates to the students. At the end, a graduate representative, Miss Live Makara, gave a speech congratulating all her classmates on a successful experience at the University of Cambodia.
