This is a part of our Cambodia forums to chat about anything Cambodia-related. This discussion forum is at the top of our site because it's usually the busiest part of the expat community chatter with random topics on just about everything, including expat life, Khmer politics, Cambodian blogs we have or have come across, or whatever else our members want to discuss. Whether you're an expatriate, tourist, Cambodian or random traveler just passing through South East Asia, you are welcome to talk about anything or start new topics yourselves.
Does anybody have any experience with ACE in Phnom Penh? My wife is thinking about taking a course there - but I need some reviews
relating to teaching quality. Is it mainly backpackers or actual teachers? Thanks
ACE requires a four year degree along with a quality tefl of some sort that includes in class training(generally CELTA). They won't hire someone from a western country just because English is their native language. In my experience with the one in Siem Reap, it's a good school.
Do you think the parents of baby boomers whined so much when the boomers started changing society? And yet the whiney ones like to call young people "snowflakes." Hmm...

ACE is purely an English language school. ISPP and Northridge are all day, full IB curriculum schools. You're comparing apples to oranges.
EDIT: I see others have mentioned the obvious already. A more apt comparison would be to places like Alliance Française, whcih is a French language school (and cultural center), and Meta Haus, which is a German language school (and cultural center).
For what it's worth, my fiancee went there a few years ago and completed Level 12, then did her IELTS. She liked it, but obviously she gelled better with some teachers more than others. I wasn't exactly watching her like a hawk as NKOTB does, so I can't really comment further than that.
