Teaching English Again in Kivumu
Monday, 20 September 2010 Written by Jayne Carlielle

After spending an incredible summer with my family teaching at Father Vjeko Centre in 2009 I really wanted to return. So I was very excited when Dianne Tyers, from Advance Consulting for Education (ACE), offered to run two pilot English programs at the school. I am an ACE graduate English as a Second Language (ESL) teacher myself so I know, first hand, the high quality of training offered by ACE. Since Rwanda’s official language has changed to English, all Rwandan teachers must now teach their classes in English. There is a tremendous need for English language training, especially in rural areas like Kivumu.

Cherie is the other teacher who will be going to the school in December. She has over 13 years of ESL teaching experience and was very happy to have been selected to travel to Kivumu.

Cherie says, “I am dying to find out about the culture and way of life in Kivumu. I had an Aunt who spent many years in Africa and I have always been fascinated by her life. I never thought I would have an opportunity to teach in Africa myself.“

Having worked briefly with the teachers from Kivumu last summer I know they work very hard to provide the best possible education for their students. I admire their commitment and dedication to their work. They are very motivated to learn so I know we will have a rewarding experience.
