What would it cost for a 10 year old native in phnom penh for parttime english lessons ( he speaks none now) ? By 'parttime' i mean after school or weekends 1-3 times per week ? Minimal , i know , hard to learn this way , i know , but its only option . Its a donation and when i try to explain to schools its like trying to buy a used car in the usa....i cant afford full time tuition donation and am leaving soon so need to figure it out quickly.....any tips or recommendations appreciated ! also , might be ongoing thing (several years) if it works out , progress , ect

I think that at somewhere like BELTEI part time lessons would be about $150 for 3 months. That's 5 lessons a week, in the late afternoon, in a classroom full of noisy kids, high on Sting and Samurai.
It's not going to work the way you have it planned. Kids only go to Khmer school for half days, so the other half day (3 hours) needs to be devoted to English, at least at the beginning, to learn a little vocabulary, but more importantly, the ability to read at least simple English words and sentences. Once the kid can do that, he can move onto part time after-school lessons. When that happens, choosing a place like Beltei is a terrible idea, because discipline is pathetic. Dedicated part time schools like Cam-Asean are a better choice.
