The study of the English language will become compulsory, in all elementary schools in 2015.
Under the Standard Based Curriculum, extra time is allocated for English language.
Curriculum and Assessment branch Director, Steven Tandale, said English language will be a subject of its own, but called on Elementary teachers to be creative in imparting the local vernaculars as well.
Mr Tandale said, all elementary schools will teach the English language, as a subject under the new Standard Based Curriculum.
The curriculum which will be introduced next year, is near completion, with Tandale confident that syllabus and teaching guides will be ready on time.
Principal Curriculum and Assessment Officer- Elementary, Philippa Darius, said time for English language will also be extended.
As students are away on their term three holidays, these elementary teachers from zone six are having their in-service training at Evedahana elementary school outside Port Moresby.
They were introduced to Standard Based Curriculum and its advancements.
Similar training will be conducted for all elementary and primary teachers at the end of this year, preparing them for the roll out of SBC next year.
Each elementary teacher will be provided with teaching kits.
