Love Export X Organising Committee Recruitment
Thank you for expressing interest in signing up for Love Export X! Love Export is in it’s 10th edition this year (2019) and we would be embarking on a trip to Laos, Xaysomboun Village. Tried finding this village online to no avail? That’s because several villages have recently relocated to this huge village and hence, it’s not online yet.
For this year’s edition, we would be sharing teaching knowledge and practices in the English Language with local primary and secondary school teachers. Why Xaysomboun? Why English? Prior to 2002, French was taught as a compulsory language in local schools in Laos. It was only after 2002 that the English language was introduced. As such, local English education infrastructure is far from developed.
Thus, it’s important for us to share our knowledge and experiences in English with local teachers and work closely with them to construct a scalable education model that can facilitate long-term English learning as well as prepare the ground to lay down more sustainable frameworks in the future. Besides basic English education, we will also be focusing on digital literacy, where we hope to build the digital infrastructure for the village to allow teachers to use digital methods to educate the students.
Sounds interesting? Join us on our adventure this June!
