CHIANG MAI, THAILAND, November 2023 — In a groundbreaking collaborative initiative, Ling, a leader in language learning, partnered with TASSEL at the University of California, Berkeley, to host the “Khmer Virtual Language Event.” This enlightening and culturally immersive session was held on November 14, 2023, from 7-8 PM PST (10-11 AM Thailand time), drawing a diverse international audience. The virtual Zoom session showcased the rich Khmer language and culture, captivating participants in a dynamic celebration of diversity.
Global Engagement In Language And Culture
The hour-long virtual event offered a unique platform for language learners and cultural enthusiasts to deepen their understanding of all things Cambodian. Designed to serve both as an enlightening educational experience and a vibrant celebration of linguistic diversity, the event also aimed to bridge cultural divides and foster global connections, underscoring the unifying power of language.
At the forefront of this initiative was Arielle Saechao, Communications Coordinator, who recognized the Ling app as an instrumental player in delivering high-quality Khmer language courses. Ling’s enthusiastic response to the collaboration proposal highlighted its dedication to promoting language learning as a tool for cultural exchange and global understanding.
The partnership with TASSEL, a non-profit organization founded in 2012, played a crucial role in the event’s success. TASSEL’s mission to empower rural Cambodians through English education, job skills training, and essential aid resonated with Ling’s goals. This collaboration effectively merged TASSEL’s commitment to educational development with Ling’s dedication to enhancing language learning and fostering cultural connections.
