English classes for Government workers

A free Government workers class has been running at local educational centre, the Mekong English Centre for the past 10 months. Government Workers receive a low salary – approx $75/mth. They generally would not be able to afford to pay for English classes so a joint project was arranged between MEC and the GVI Charitable Trust to share the cost of these classes – 5 days/week  for a period of 12 months.

The Government Workers have been receiving solid English training for 10 months so far. The English skills obtained would enhance their opportunities of interacting with foreigners on both a personal and professional level. Generally speaking, Lao Government Officials are at a disadvantage with their English skills compared to other South-East Asian nations.
