Without enough qualified individuals, no country can be properly developed. Therefore, teacher education is essential in all countries. All kinds of development processes emerge from learning and teaching. A teacher is the most important character in building human capital. So, teacher education is even more important. Cambodia has a very long history of education. Education in this country used to reach the top during the Angkor Period and dropped down to zero during the Killing Fields. This article reviews some aspects of education, the formulae of teacher education after year zero, and the challenges of teacher education, and it also suggests some ideas to improve the teacher education process in Cambodia. This research is qualitative research with a documentary study approach. This article shows that education in Cambodia used to peak and fall to zero.</p> Sereyrath Em, Pisith Chin, Somphors Khan, Nel Nun Copyright (c) 2022 Jurnal As-Salam https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/4.0 https://www.jurnal-assalam.org/index.php/JAS/article/view/401 Mon, 29 Aug 2022 00:00:00 +0700 CAMBODIAN BUDDHIST MONK STUDENTS’ MOTIVATION IN LEARNING ENGLISH: THE CASE OF HUN NENG BUDDHIST PRIMARY SCHOOL, KAMPONG CHAM TOWN https://www.jurnal-assalam.org/index.php/JAS/article/view/405 <p>This study presents an overview of a survey on Cambodian Buddhist monk students’ motivation in learning English at Hun Neng Buddhist Primary School, Kampong Cham Town. The study employed a quantitative method. The study aimed to examine the motivation levels of the participants and the difference between intrinsic and extrinsic motivation levels. 93 Buddhist monk students participated in the study. The findings show that the Buddhist monk students were highly motivated to learn English, and it was also reported that they were more extrinsically motivated than intrinsically motivated. The study also recommends that motivation inside and outside the classroom be carefully considered. It is also recommended that future research be conducted with a larger sample size using other statistical analyses at other educational institutions. Qualitative and mixed-methods designs are also recommended.</p> Pheaktra Keo, Seylanin Yoeurn, Monyroth Prom, Pisith Chin, Sereyrath Em Copyright (c) 2022 Jurnal As-Salam https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/4.0 https://www.jurnal-assalam.org/index.php/JAS/article/view/405 Mon, 29 Aug 2022 00:00:00 +0700 TEACHING ADVANCED LISTENING DURING COVID-19 PANDEMIC: LECTURERS’ STRATEGIES EXPLAINED https://www.jurnal-assalam.org/index.php/JAS/article/view/392 <p>Listening is one of the four sub-skills in English that need to be mastered.

It relates to a lack of English proficiency. Even after six years of formal language learning, students can still not acquire productive English abilities such as speaking and writing. This study's main objective is to find the English teachers' perspectives concerning the most effective teaching methods in rural schools throughout four districts, Malaka, Kupang, Timor Tengah Utara, and Timor Tengah Selatan. The mixed-method was administered through a questionnaire, data collected from 26 English teachers at Senior High School who met the criteria. In addition, eight respondents were interviewed to learn how to apply effective methods. The most effective methods of teaching English in rural areas include Suggestopedia, Audio-Lingual Method, Communicative Language Teaching, and Task-Based Language Teaching.</p> Darius Yonatan Nama, Christmas Prasetia Ate Copyright (c) 2022 Jurnal As-Salam https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/4.0 https://www.jurnal-assalam.org/index.php/JAS/article/view/381 Mon, 29 Aug 2022 00:00:00 +0700
