Louis I salute you. I am empowered by the presentation. Never a dull moment even though the weather was hot. I've already implemented the programme with my learners.

The BCP focuses on the learner… where the teacher acts as a mediator, prompts to access logical thinking and develops language.

We were taught the theory as well as the practice.  I now feel confident to start to implement the programme with my class and even with my nieces and nephews.

The emphasis on language throughout the programme helps to develop learners' understanding of concepts and expand their vocabulary. The BCP stops learners from guessing, it gives them more structure and develops their cognitive functioning.
