South Asia: English in Action Across Bangladesh

English in Action is a nine-year-old programme that helps 25 million people in Bangladesh improve their ability to use English language for social and economic purposes. This project creates resources for the classroom and for teacher professional development using mobile technologies, which are then deployed by primary and secondary school teachers.

Currently, however, there is a critical shortage of English language skills, both throughout Bangladeshi society and within the teaching profession.

    25 million people benefit from this programme? Wow!
    That’s great, it’s incredible… the far reaching of esl teaching/learning, but I do feel that for a lot of esl teachers that adds to the ‘we are better then you’ mis-belief… don’t you agree? I guess it’s something that we can’t do anything about as native speakers… but I do know (from first hand experience) there is a considerable resentment for the assumed superiority of English speakers.
