Language-supportive education in English medium-of-instruction contexts

Session description

Presenter(s): 
John Simpson

Session details:

In many contexts where English is the medium of instruction (MoI), primary school pupils have only a short time to master English before learning all subjects in it. Recognising this is a near impossible task. This talk outlines a mainstream approach to supporting education in English and presents evidence for it from recent British Council work in sub-Saharan Africa.


Comments

You are absolutely right. English is the most commonly spoken language in the world. One out of five people can speak and understand English. It is also the language of the Internet. Many websites are written in English and it is the official language of 53 countries. That is a lot of people to meet and speak in English. Practicing speaking is one of the most fun and rewarding parts of learning English. Reading books and websites can also help the student in improving in English.   back to school coupons 2018  is giving good quality educational accessories at a very low rate by using coupons.
