In 2008-2015, i-Learner joined hands with The Institute for Integrated Rural Development, Hong Kong to organise an English immersion camp for teachers in a poverty-stricken county in Western Hunan, China. The camp lasted for three and a half days.
In 2008, the focus was on primary school teachers; 42 where trained. The 2009 camp shifted to target secondary school teachers. There were altogether 38 participants from 16 secondary and vocational schools in the 2009 camp. The aims of the camp were to improve the teachers’ English ability and enhance their teaching skills. The trainees of the camp were requested to share what they learned with fellow teachers in their schools. The teachers trained by the programme and the colleagues who they passed their knowledge onto teach English to tens of thousands of students in the region every year.Learn more about this project!
