Have you wondered how do kids learn their mother tongue? They simply pick up the language by listening to people in their surroundings.
But how do you teach English in an environment where there is no scope for a child to listen to English? Where even a ‘sorry’ and a ‘thank you’ are rarely heard!
In such geographies, the only person who can be the source of learning English is the local government school teacher. But this teacher himself has very limited exposure to English and being a product of the same constrained education system is unable to speak English fluently or confidently.
Existing English learning solutions available in the market, though good, are designed assuming that the teachers delivering the content are fluent in English. As a result, despite decades of attempts to improve the quality of English learning in government, results on the ground have not improved much.
Keeping this in mind, we have developed a solution called The English Literacy Program (ELP) that is designed for teachers who have a job of teaching English but cannot do so effectively because they cannot speak English. Built on top of a Translation Algorithm, the solution enables such teachers to teach English in their mother-tongue and develop specific capabilities in their students namely Reading, Comprehension & Sentence Structuring.
English Literacy Program
The English Literacy Program is LeapForWord’s flagship solution for bringing English proficiency to students from regional language backgrounds. The scope of the solution is to enable teachers to take their respective students from Complete English Illiteracy to a stage where they can Read, Write, Comprehend & Structure Grammatically correct sentences.
Since inception, we have reached out to more than 60,000 students through 8,500+ teachers.
English Literacy Program has 4 learning levels:
1. Elementary – Reading & Comprehension
2. Advance – Reading & Comprehension.
Objectives against each learning level are delivered through a series of simple techniques which teachers can easily explain in their local language to develop specific English skills in students.
