I have just returned from a trip to Zambia. I ran three courses over there: at St Monica's in Lusaka, St Agatha's in Mongu and St Lawrence's in Limulunga. They were all Catholic primary schools, although some of the attendees worked in the Adult Literacy programmes.
Practising the lessons in pairs.
"I have enjoyed the Sounds-Write course so much. I hope I can teach the children as well as you taught us."
Demonstrating a lesson in Mongu
"Thank you for coming to our country. The course was so interesting and I learnt a lot of things that I didn't know. Thank you very much. I wish you could come again!"
LimulungaWe invited some children to demonstrate a lesson. The course was very well received. The teachers really appreciated the opportunity to learn more about phonics and be introduced to such a well sequenced and structured programme. It was a privilege to spend time with such wonderful, dedicated people. Hopefully, I have played just a small part in helping in their endeavour to educate the children and help them out of poverty.
"This workshop was so interesting. I had fun and enjoyed myself. I have learnt a lot about how to teach sounds and spellings. I tried the method at home with my second born child and it was amazing to see that he was able to read and write some words he couldn't before. Thank you and God bless you."
