The Georgian Language for Future Success Program has been launched. The aim of the project is to enhance the knowledge of Georgian language among the ethnic minorities living in Georgia.
As part of the program, selected teachers have already commenced their activities. In particular, they have started to teach Georgian language to the students of non-Georgian schools in the Kvemo Kartli, Samtskhe-Javakheti, and Kakheti regions.
While conducting Georgian language lessons, the program participants co-teach with local teachers of the Georgian language and assist the teachers of other subjects to deliver classes bilingually. The participants of the program live in host families.
By the end of 2011, 500 participants will be involved in this new program.
Ministry of Education and Science of Georgia will fund M.A studies of B.A participants of the program based on their one year work experience at the schools of the mentioned regions. At the same time, experience gained in the frame of the program will be considered in case the participants opt to pass Teacher Certification Exams and further pursue their career in teaching.
