Two-day conference was held in the scope of the
program “Teach English as the Second Language.” “The most frequently occurred problem,
during the teaching process of Georgian as the second language” served as the main
topic of the conference. The conference was attended by staff of Teachers’
Professional Development Center, invited experts and 75 trainer teachers
participating in the program.
In the scope of the program “Teach Georgian as
the Second Language” qualified Georgian language and literature teachers are
sent to Samtskhe-Javajheti, Qvemo Qartli and Kakheti regions, which are
inhabited by representatives of ethnic minorities. Its’ worth noting, that the
problem of Georgian language competency is extremely low.
The program aims at improving Georgian language
teaching in the areas inhabited by ethnic minorities and encourages teachers to
enhance their qualification.
