Rwanda: English Language Teaching Kicks Off

The recent government decision to use English as the language of instruction
has kicked off in some schools, with teachers enrolling for the language
alongside their students. Among the schools that have started implementing
English language is St Patrick primary school in Kicukiro district.

According to Emile Ruberwa, the head of communications at the Ministry of
Education, the teachers have scheduled time and invited English teachers,
who teach them during the night, while they pass the language basics to the
pupils during the day.
