At our school, After getting

At our school, After getting training  in the use of English language and as they got motivated, the teachers took initiative of speaking/talking in English language within the school.This was done especially  through free debates and other  different approaches .As SBM this helped me to find out the weaknesses for some teachers and met their needs.   Great thanks to you Mr. Raymond and your coworkers for your help.

Suggested Ways to Create a

Suggested Ways to Create a Rich English Language Environment for Students

A rich English language learning environment can be created through making full use of the time and resources both inside and outside the school. Schools may consider the WHY, WHAT, WHERE, WHEN, WHO, and HOW questions in relation to the following two key success factors contributing to the creation of a rich English language environment for students:

  1. Raising students' motivation and interest in English learning; and
  2. Widening students' learning space (physical and cognitive) through effective learning and teaching strategies, flexible curriculum planning and timetabling (to make allowance for life-wide learning and co-curricular activities), and effective deployment of resources.

3.I have taught learners

3.I have taught learners different English songs which make them proud, as a simple strategy of studying English through 4 communication skills:speaking,hearing,reading and writing.                                                          4.I have given a reward the bright learners who come first in getting good marks in class in order to create emulation among pupils.N.B:There are many good things that we should do as mentors so that the English language can be better and better,but the serious problem is the time which is not enough and the lack of special incentives(rewards) for mentors.Thank you very much for your good attention towards us.See you later.

Cyprien, good points shared

Cyprien, good points shared to the community. A part from that is there anything else you have done or doing at your school create an environment that reflects English language from outside the class room or from the eyes of the learners?

We have encouraged learners

We have encouraged learners to use English in their interactions at school or on the way home.Teachers are required to mostly use  English language as the medium of instruction.A great number of debates have been organized especially in secondary.During the reading clubs,in primary learners are asked many questions about what they see on pictures in the books.

Good afternoon dear Colleague

Good afternoon dear Colleague Mentors and MCOP members. What I do to reinforce English language, is to do more researches about English language ether in books or from Internet websites and try to share with my Colleague teachers, Mentors and the students. I am accustomed to doing these through the discourses and teaching English language properly and different meetings. Thanks.

I would have a very bad network but after reading some of your comments I can add that that English club is more helpful in reinforcing English language. I remember I used to be in English club when I was in secondary. This helped me to learn English. I also read  many books which are written in English. An example of book I read is Juju Rock adventure by Cypriane Kwesi from Nigeria., Let us read plz

at my school, we used to set topics and make a debate in teachers' room so that teachers can benefit from others and feel free to talk in english. for students, we have a english day and on that day we try our best to use only english to communicate. however, there are still some teachers and learners who are still stuck on their mother tongue and cannot last even 3 min in english speaking team and they avoid to be available while we start the talk in english, so, i need your assistance about how this issue can be solved  . thnx

Hello my fellow mentors and

Hello my fellow mentors and our facilitators! Even though I didn't participated in alive meet the expert due to the lack of connection at my school area;I would like to post my experience done to create and reinforce English language at my school.As mentor, I trained English teachers and other teachers whose English is their medium of teaching to:

-Explain new word by using gestures,drawings,opposite words,real objects by tactile,...to increase the vocabularies for learners.

-Set their objectives in  terms of Content objectives and language objectives 

-Promote reading culture in their own classrooms(competition followed by rewarding the best group worked hard and encourage remainders to do so)

As a teacher,

-I encouraged learners to read different books especially from school library

-I distributed textbooks among a large number of learners and made a follow up their use to enhance reading culture through my class taught toward the whole school and its neighborhoods 

Etc,...
