During a recent trip to North Maharashtra in India, English Language Fellow Dwaine Neyland attended a conference and planned several school visits.

Over the course of two days, Dwaine visited a number of schools and designed activities specific to the various age ranges he would be working with. All of the activities gave students the rare opportunity to speak with a native English speaker and build their confidence.

At three of the schools, the Fellow hosted question and answer sessions about speaking or learning English. At one college, he presented a workshop on presentation skills and at a primary school asked the group simple questions to match their English language skill level. Dwaine gave both an inaugural speech and a workshop at the NMUETA conference nearby, and was well received by his many hosts.
