The English for the Community project is a partnership between British Council Romania and the Romanian-American Foundation (RAF).
English is a key skill for ecotourism: it helps communities reach international audiences and share ideas with other agencies abroad. Effective skills in English are a gateway for young people to employment in the ecotourism sector and reduce the need to migrate to find work elsewhere.
The best people to help young students develop their language skills are their English teachers.
Therefore, a key strand of the project aims to provide professional development for up to 150 teachers over a three-year period, contributing to the creation of a new generation of professionals in rural areas through quality education.
