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.
