About the Blog
After few years of my English Language teaching career, I felt the feeling that ‘one more thing’ should be done to make Secondary school students boast to have attended secondary school education.
Why a certain Form Four student can find it difficult to speak English? This is my question and yours too. Obviously, there is always ‘one more thing’ to be done. These students have not done activities to make them get used to speaking English freely in several circumstances and settings.
After launching KACHELEONLINE blog, I have received all kinds of contributions; positive, constructive, and critical as well. My fellow teachers have been calling me, texting, and dropping a line via my email to say something about this move. I am happy to learn from their criticisms and I take their compliments with constructive approach so that to see this program goes beyond the present situation.
