Ensuring Success with English in India

In a few days, I embark on a two-and-a-half week adventure to India. I fly into Delhi where I will spend a couple days visiting the Taj Mahal and the surrounding areas, and then I fly to Chennai where I will spend some time at the Peery School for Rising Stars sponsored by Rising Star Outreach. I visited this school in May of 2008 to train summer volunteers on EFL/literacy training. (See my previous blog posts on June 9, 2008 and June 22, 2008 about my visit to India.) Since my visit two-and-a-half years ago, a state-of-the-art computer lab has been installed, and the students have begun using the Reading Horizons software my company donated to the school to improve their reading and English skills. On this trip, I will help to ensure that the administrators, teachers, and students are getting the most out of their use of the Reading Horizons program, as well as assisting in other English learning and literacy training needs. I will be posting photos and videos of my experiences on this blog, so stay tuned!
