Raleigh Society organises environmental and community projects both in Singapore and overseas. Project ABC is the latest overseas project we have undertaken. To learn more about the past projects that we have organised, please go to Projects.
Project ABC is a project for local teachers in Myanmar, who are tasked to teach the English language as a subject in school but who do not necessarily have a strong foundation in the language. The key aim of the project is therefore to improve the local teachers' English language foundation. We hope that with a stronger foundation, the local teachers will gradually be better equipped to teach the language to the local students.
The project started in December 2014. The second phase of the project was carried out in June 2015. And the last, and third, phase was in June 2016. It is a long-term on-going project as we will be working with the same batch of local teachers. The plan is to conduct English language workshops for these local teachers 2-3 times each year. The current workshop's focus is on teaching the various tenses and pronunciation, and the syllabus structure is based on the EFL teaching methodology.
The next, and fourth, phase of the project will be from 8-22 December 2016. We will be having a meet-up session with potential volunteers in September (date to be confirmed) for the December 2016 phase.
We are calling for volunteers and experienced educators who have a passion to engage in this sustainable project in training local teachers in Myanmar. Volunteers are also expected to help the lead volunteer and lesson planner to plan out the workshop prior to each phase.
