English teaching journal launched

A journal expected to make the teaching of English language more effective has been launched.

The English Teacher’s Journal, the first of its kind, will complement the education objectives of schools in Sub-Saharan Africa. The quarterly journal has writers from Canada, United States of America and from Ghana.

According to the CEO of Midstream Literary Agency, Evans Owusu Amankwah, the journal seeks to “elevate the level of literacy by providing learning support systems for students, teachers and community members, and also merging culturally and internationally appropriate practices, while serving as a role model for educational support excellence for the community at large.”

The launch of the English Teacher’s Journal was witnessed by English teachers drawn from both government and private schools in the Ashanti and Greater Accra Regions.

A female tutor with 20 years experience who was present at the launch, lamented that, “the major problem with teaching English especially in the public schools is the comprehension; sometimes reading becomes a problem, my pupils can sometimes read but cannot fully understand.”

She was elated that, “with the help of this journal, with the ‘how to go about it’ approach, I know this time, we will see differences, just going through, I’ve learnt a lot and I think we will get there.”
