American Corner Mombasa Introduces New Technologies for Learning English

Over 30 Madrassa teachers at the American Corner Mombasa, located in the Muslim Education and Welfare Association (MEWA) were introduced to Playaways (audio books) and Kindles on February 12, 2013.  The teachers regularly use the American Corner (AC) to learn and improve their English language skills and to obtain relevant educational resources for their classrooms, which helps them in also teaching English to their students.  AC Coordinator Biasha O. Seif introduced Playaways and Kindles provided by the AC and demonstrated how they can use the e-resources to improve their listening skills, pronunciation and reading comprehension.  The teachers participated actively in learning how to use the e-resources and thanked U.S. Embassy Nairobi for supporting the people of Mombasa.
