The dissemination event of Teaching and Learning English (TaLE) project took place at the conference room of UKBET on 20 April,2014.
TaLE is a innovative project funded through the European Integration Fund and led by Learning Unlimited working in partnership with UKBET, St Giles Educational Trust and Greenwich Community College. The project is supporting Bangladeshi women who are planning to settle in the UK to settle with their husbands/families by offering free ESOL classes. These classes help women learn the language they need to help them feel part of life in the UK. They cover important topics such as health, housing, education, transport, safety and work in the UK. The ESOL courses are run by local teachers who are receiving Cambridge-accredited training with trainers from St Giles International.
The chief guest of the programme Mr. Khondoker Monwar Murshed –UNO, Sylhet Sadar thanked UKBET for taking such a innovative and effective project for the development of Teaching and Learning English. Julia McGerty from Learning Unlimited, Frances Perry,Vivienne Emery from St. Giles Educational Trust were also present with many others.
