Meet Hannah: The director of a language school in Cambodia

Hannah (pseudonym), a cross-cultural worker who directs language school in Phnom Phen, has a passion for helping others  learn Khmer. While Hannah was redesigning the language school’s curriculum, she took language coach trainings from ICCT, inspiring her to learn even more about second language acquisition. She is currently enrolled in the M.A. TESOL at Wheaton College and her language school continues to have a partnership with ICCT. We are honored that ICCT has the privilege to be a small part of what God is doing among the nations and WE WANT TO PARTNER WITH YOUR ORGANIZATION to further God’s work too!
