British English Teacher TIMOTHY JAMES SEARLE Dies in Phnom Penh, Cambodia

Breaking news from Cambodia can be found here. CEO often finds Khmer news and translates it into English for our readers if it is interesting to expats, locals, Cambodians living abroad and anyone who wants to stay informed of the latest local and international news stories about Cambodia and our neighbors in South East Asia. There are many sources for Khmer news articles and they can all be found here in one place. Most of the media comes out of Phnom Penh, Siem Reap or Sihanoukville, but we cover national Cambodian news from all provinces.

I didn t realize that English teachers teach either British English or American English.
Most English teaching books in Cambodia are printed in American English although they mostly originate from Cambridge, UK. NB: not sure if originate is the correct word.
do you teach your pupils the correct spelling of colour or neighbour?

I'm retired now, but I previously taught English for 6 years here in Cambodia. I'm English, so no matter what book we were studying I would use the English spelling.
I can't recall it ever being an issue.

Dying in your 30s is tragic, as is your 40s, sympathy dissipates from there. 50s, is such a shame. 60s, is too soon. 70s, a good run. 80s, a life well lived. 90s? That's a fucking hell of a ride.

RIP
