About the talk

Many countries struggle with perceived needs for education systems to improve English outcomes, often with similar obstacles such as low levels of preparedness of teachers (English levels and training). This talk focuses on baseline studies of speaking and listening assessment in Bangladesh, and will discuss research findings, comparisons between CEFR and learning outcomes, and possible approaches to overcoming issues.
