    Hi Clare,
    I’m a (now freelance) teacher trainer, workshop facilitator, NILE trainer and materials writer based in Argentina and am really looking forward to seeing how you planned, developed and implemented your “Silent Revolution”

    I’m a trained educational dramatist and fully believe in activity based English Language Learning. Am working hard to promote this form of ELT in Argentina and other countries. I hope to learn a lot from this presentation.

      Hello Susan

      The Tamil Nadu project has been very interesting to work on, the SSA ( (Education for All) have had experience in rolling out large scale change projects, so I have also learnt a lot. We were able to use their expertise and knowledge to ensure that the English programme had as much impact in the classroom as possible.

    Hi Clare,

    I like the term Silent Revolution…..Really wish we could post all the feedback received from both Master trainers and teachers regarding the impact that this project is having both on their teaching skills and on the children…Hope that this project gets to phase two in TN and Phase 3 in Kerala…

      Hi Jagadeesh

      Thanks for contacting me. In fact British Council is still working in Karnataka rolling out a 5 day programme to all primary teachers. We would like to continue to support the Master trainers in Karnataka and will let you know when we are able to finalise any programme.

      Very best wishes
