English Language Policy in South Sudan

Alistair and I are preparing for the first of three visits to Juba in South Sudan with the aim of developing an English Language Policy Framework for Teachers in Primary schools for the Ministry of Education, Science and Technology (MoEST) through UNICEF and the Windle Trust. We will be meeting the main sponsors and training research assistants to help us investigate attitudes towards English, its use in classrooms and methods teachers use with input from MoEST officials, head teachers, County Education Directors, inspectors, teachers and learners. We also hope to be visiting some classrooms.
