been implementing our English language training course for young blind students. The program commenced in May 2009 and we have now
pilot training course and training course level one.
English and taking part in the classes has given the students confidence in
their own abilities and as a result they are broadening their horizons. They
learn English to increase their job prospects in the future. It has been very
interesting and quite a privilege to observe these once shy, withdrawn young
people actually develop personal goals and ambitions for the future. The students are progressing very well and they are really
enjoying the classes. Each of
students now has dreams for the future. ACCV is very committed to helping
them to achieve these goals.
We have recently developed a tutoring programme to assist those students requiring
extra tuition. A fully qualified English language teacher comes to ACCV’s
office to tutor the students one on one. This extra tuition is proving to be
very successful in maintaining the classroom standard and preventing students
falling too far behind. ACCV also
plans to organise tutorial sessions out
at Thanh Tri Blind Association to accommodate those students who cannot commute
to our office. The assessment modules in the course materials
assists the teachers in identifying those student who require extra assistance.
produced a variety of interactive learning tools that the students particularly
enjoy. A game of Dominoes, songs with
lyrics, flash cards and other
activities all contribute to a positive,
interesting classroom environment to help the students learn English
goal is to provide an Educational and Social centre where young blind people
can complete vocational courses, join a Braille library, take part in
an English club, or just hang out
and enjoy socializing with their peers, both blind and sighted
