February 28, 2023, U.S. Embassy Public Diplomacy Officer Laseanta Stafford officially launched the 𝗘𝗻𝗴𝗹𝗶𝘀𝗵 𝗖𝗹𝘂𝗯 𝗠𝗼𝗱𝗲𝗿𝗮𝘁𝗼𝗿𝘀 𝗧𝗿𝗮𝗶𝗻𝗶𝗻𝗴 (ECMT) program at the American Corner of Antananarivo. This two-day program equipped 30 English club leaders to create, lead, and moderate English clubs. Dr. Kathleen F. Malu, Professor of Literacy, Language, Research and ESL/Bilingual Education from William Paterson University of New Jersey, led the program. Participants gained a deeper understanding of the skills and techniques needed to lead English Club meetings, learned games and resources to teach American English as a second language, and enhanced their understanding of U.S. culture and history.
We are excited to see the great work they will do with English clubs across the region. Future training sessions will be held across Madagascar and Comoros.
