Now I had won two scholarships in 2 bachelor degrees including, majors of Education in English at BELTEI International University and another is Information Technology at Cambodia International Cooperation Institute and I will be graduating at 2015. I express my interesting in Information Technology major because I won a scholarship 100% on this major. I have always dreaming of becoming an educated woman who can help myself, my family, and my country. Therefore, I have an ambition to gain a degree in IT. With the knowledge I earned from the program, I want to become an IT professional. This would be a great job, which will be enable me to with an opportunity to help younger Cambodian generations to better understand modern technology by teaching and sharing my knowledge and experiences with them. This then will help our nation to become part of the modern day of technological world and eventually will result in development as a whole. In addition, IT will result in personal development definitely. Studying in an IT class is an opportunity for me to learn a lot of things as the class, which is full of smart, ambitious students, expose me to a tough challenge with other fellow classmates. Through this experience, I have learned how to express my opinions and illustrate my talents. Moreover, it helps me to build up my self-esteem and self-reliance. It guides me to better understanding of woman’s values because there rarely has woman to learn in this field. However, IT knowledge alone is not enough to achieve my goals. English is also a significant factor in reaching my goals. IT is based on English for programs and instructions, so it is very difficult to study IT without the knowledge of English. I would like to study Bachelor of Teaching English as a Second Language because I understand that I have come to know that even my English teachers are very eager to teach and contribute to the development of English Language Teaching, we are lack of proper methodology. The more I learn, the more I notice the fact that teachers- experienced or inexperienced- should think more deeply about what we do in classroom to make learners more involved and more interested in. I also realized that country development depends on Language efficiency and large amount of efficient Language teachers are needed. But it is very difficult to get chance to receive such a fine training for present day teachers. Most of Cambodian English Teachers as well as students understand that English Learning is knowing the grammar rules and memorizing words which are taught in classroom. Such a teacher-centered and parrot-learning system is used to be applied for a long time. Therefore, I came to realize that it would be useful for those seeking a well-paid job as well as facilitating students’ study or research in their school include daily lives communication. I would like to major in the area of theory and methodology of instruction for English Language development, to plan a series of lesson, to write clear learning objectives, to know different ways of teaching how resources can be used and also the classroom management for different situation. I am also interested in language & Culture integration because these areas are the main weak points for most of my peer Cambodian teacher including me. Moreover, English is not only vital for the field of IT, but is also a main means of communication in our modern world. Most international communication is carried out in English. Most importantly, English is the language of documents that students like me need in their course of study. It is also necessary for serious research. All in all, IT and English would provide me with many opportunities to develop myself, my family, and my country. I strongly believe that the intensive Language Program will be a great opportunity for me to achieve my objectives and gain knowledge and experiences for improving myself and helping Cambodia to become a prosperous nation.
