Web Page Launch of the ‘English for Fun’ Project
on 13th December 2022, 9 a.m.
The English for Fun Project is designed to intervene at a crucial age of language acquisition, the pre-school age, which will help people learn English better as they progress in life. It will give children exposure to the English language through fun and enjoyment and is therefore based on stories, nursery rhymes and songs. The audio tracks as well as the PDF versions of the Student and Teacher’s Guidebooks are provided free of charge to anyone who is interested. Printed material is carried in Sinhala and Tamil as well, so that adults can help their children become familiar with English even without being proficient in the English language themselves. This website will make the whole syllabus available to English Language Acquisition Centers that will be established in the Public Library System nationwide.
The English for Fun Project is conceptualized and designed by Dr. Madhubhashini Disanayaka Ratnayake, Senior Lecturer, Department of English Language Teaching, University of Sri Jayewardenepura.
