Guinean government wants English taught in all secondary schools

gn.pngThe West African country of Guinea is to introduce English teaching for all secondary school students from October.

The Guinean government has ordered English teaching in all secondary schools across the French-speaking country in West Africa once the 2013-2014 academic year begins in October, Xinhua news agency reported.

English is already part of the curriculum for some students at a lower level of secondary education where the language is only an optional.

Guinea's Pre-University and Civic Education Minister Ibrahima Kourouma met with teachers of the English language on Monday to discuss their new assignment before classes begin.

Addressing the 300 or so teachers, Kourouma hailed the Guinea-South Africa cooperation which has enabled Guinea to introduce teaching of the English language in all secondary schools.
