A GROUP of teachers hopes to improve the teaching of the English language and
literacy at all levels in the country.
They are members of the Papua New
Guinea Network of English Teachers who met last Friday at the University of
Papua New Guinea.
The members want to improve themselves and their teaching
practices through academic and professional interaction.
The group is
committed to addressing the decline in English language literacy at all levels
of education through collaborative research and proposal for quality assurance
benchmarks in the teaching of the language.
“It seems that English teachers
in PNG have no voice in the practical learning environment and the UPNG is
starting to address the problem of English language in PNG,” chairman Johnson
He said there was no Department of English of its own but UPNG
was starting to develop English language literacy by creating a division in the
School of Humanities and Social Science. It hopes to provide a voice for
English language teachers.
The meeting discussed the need for English
teachers to meet often especially those in Port Moresby.
The teachers have
been concerned about the decline in the standard of English in schools and
universities and wanted to find solutions to the problem.
suggested included material development, material evaluation, teaching,
conference, seminars, workshops, short courses and research.
