RAWLI is super excited to be working with Overpass Ltd. UK to develop an app to help Swahili speaking primary school students learn English. Our app is being developed by Eric Wroolie and will be based on his popular “bubble bath” series which helps English speaking students learn foreign languages. Now we wonder…will the students in Tanzania learn to speak English with a British accent? <insert ahhhh here>
While visiting the Gerezani Primary School, a door of opportunity was set before us. It was a creaky old door, with peeling paint that led to a room filled with what looked like decades of dust. “Someday, the teachers dream that this room will be a library” the Headmistress told us.
Thanks to Cups N Cones for hosting Reading Around the World’s poster making party today. My friends and I had a lot of fun making posters for the Leander book fairs! It feels amazing to get this organization going. Also special thanks to Mr. Rudy, the Storyteller for Cups N Cones for offering to donate some children’s books from his collection. Y’all are awesome!
