Workshops are being conducted by the British counsel to improve the standard of English of the people especially in Vietnam, Thailand, Indonesia, Malaysia, Singapore, the Philippines, the Republic of Korea, where English is said to be not up to the mark.
The demand for English language teaching in primary schools in Vietnam is growing as English is increasingly perceived as an essential basic skill. To ensure successful language learning at primary schools, teachers must have the skills and techniques necessary for a more child-friendly or child-centered relationship in the classroom.
The workshop is conducted as a part of the British Council’s Regional Primary Innovations’ project. The main aim of the project is to help change primary English language teaching methods in Vietnam, Thailand, Indonesia, Malaysia, Singapore, the Philippines, the Republic of Korea, Taiwan and Japan.
The cornerstone of the programme is to support education policy markers, primary school English language teacher, educators and primary school teachers. And nearly 70 primary teachers in Hanoi attended a British Council backed workshop on creating child-friendly conducted on Oct 25th. About 600 primary teachers and schools in Hanoi, Da Nang and HCM City will have access to the new textbooks and reference books. All these workshops prove to be a good way in enhancing the language efficiency of the people throughout the world.
