The Moriah
English Learning Initiative

The vision of Moriah School is for all students and staff to be proficient in reading, speaking and writing using only English, and all courses will be taught in English.

A new initiative is being developed by a group of U.S. English language teachers and tutors who seek to support listening, speaking, reading and writing skills of the students of Moriah School.

The U.S. friends of Moriah School will provide supplemental English Language Learning opportunities to enhance and enrich English language skills of students and staff.

Special technology will be used to enable:

  1. U.S. educators and Moriah School students and staff to create and share instructional and conversational English videos online;
  2. Interactive communication between students and staff in India with teachers/tutors in the United States.

 

These strategies will greatly assist Moriah’s teaching of English where resources are currently very limited.

Interactions with native English speakers is of immense value and a means to change the entire trajectory of students’ lives
