It made me rethink how I teach and how I can change the language I use.

Christel House Training, July 2014

The course was very helpful to me as a teacher, excellent and exciting, because it opened my mind … how to integrate basic concept in all learning areas. It also showed that children should not be limited and their understanding should be developed step-by-step.

It was a weekend to remember… I had enough time to make plans for things at home. Thank you, it was a joy to listen to someone so passionate about his work.

What stood out for me - was not teaching the content, but how to teach the concept and so much vocabulary is elicited …

I am extremely grateful for being exposed to this programme … I'm always worried about those learners who are not progressing. The programme can support these learners in order to lay the foundation for academic progress. Practically my whole class needs this Foundation!!! How can I start with formal teaching if they do not know their Basics.
