Mindanao teachers stick to English in camp

Smiling, the second-grade teacher rested from a game that challenged
her to fully use her English language skills.

Celema Lechonsito of the Manili Elementary School in Lutayan, Sultan
Kudarat, traveled all the way to Mactan, Cebu, to join 132 other grade
school teachers from Mindanao in a 12-day camp that promised to help
them improve their English in time for the school opening in June.

The English Language Camp helped the teacher-campers practice their
English language skills using educational games and other activities
on persuasive speaking, interviewing, using idioms, reading and
retelling stories, creating and enacting newscasts, hosting, debating,
creative writing, role playing, conversation, and vocabulary building.
