Getting enough qualified English language teachers for basic education is usually an uphill task. This is more so in developing countries, especially in low income communities.
This webinar will show how innovative technology can be used to teach the English language using the mother tongue as the language of instruction. Both parents and teachers need good instructional materials to get children interested in learning the English language – either at home or in a classroom setting. The webinar will also show how to transform existing materials into lively, easy-to-use technology-based learning materials.
Date: Tuesday 9 January 2018
