My Independent Discovery is about Coding Java. I learned the basic of it and I made a simple Graphic User Interface (GUI) calculator. Java is very easy to learn but when I learned Object-oriented programming (OOP) is very tricky for me to understand the process. I learned Java from Youtube videos and search on Google.
On 23 January 2015, Liger launched another book is Wildlife of Cambodia. I am not an author of this book but I am a illustrator and translator. I painted many species and four of my paintings chose to be in the book include a habitat and I am so proud of my painting was picked. I didn’t like to paint much before I learn to paint but once I started to learn with Val, I begin to love painting pretty much.
Here is my paintings picked to the book:
For the translations, it was very hard to translate from English to Khmer because in the book have the keywords that Khmer don’t have. I translated six species.
On 12 January 2016 is a big event at our school, the Ministry of Education Dr. Hang Chuon Naron wanted our school to make a workshop for school directors from 34 schools in Phnom Penh. Liger students divided into groups and I was in Khmer and Literacy. I presented about with Fluency session. We have only one day to practice before the event.
My experience that I got from the presentation were when I present were be we need to check Khmer spelling again and again because Khmer word is very conflict and Ministry and school directors saw a lot of Khmer mistakes. Also, I need to be more polite when I present in Khmer because when we speak differently to differently ranks and ages.
