Leveraging technology to effectively teach English language in the mother tongue of the learner

In this webinar recording, winners of the ELTons award for Local Innovation show how their innovative technology, Mavis Talking Books, can be used to teach the English language using the mother tongue as the language of instruction.

About the webinar

Getting enough qualified English language teachers for basic education is usually an uphill task. This is more so in developing countries, especially in low income communities.

This webinar looks at how innovative technology can be used to teach the English language using the mother tongue as the language of instruction. Both parents and teachers need good instructional materials to get children interested in learning the English language – either at home or in a classroom setting. The webinar also shows how to transform existing materials into lively, easy-to-use technology-based learning materials.
