I had an idea what the course would be like, but it was much more than what I had expected.

I really cannot wait to start- I want all my children to be Grade 1 ready at the end of this year.

Presentation was well organized and clear. The lecturer explained extensively about the content of the course. The programme should be implemented by all Foundation Phase teachers and be recognized by government. The BCP is CAPS aligned.

Before the workshop I thought (that) I knew how to teach or introduce my lessons, but now I know that I was not doing justice to my learners. I took them for granted ... as if (they would) very easily understand my instructions.

Ek waardeer alles wat Dr Louis ons geleer het. Daar is soveel dinge wat ek nie geweet het nie, bv. hoe om ons kinders te help leer. You are a star, thank you for your time.
