Bethesda is also offering conversation classes in English to the public in the municipality of Pokhara.
In Nepal, as in all parts of the world, there is a demand for assistance to attain a good grasp of the English language. Be it for studies in the country (often in English medium) or for people aspiring to study or work overseas, the demand for learning English is growing by the hour. Many have learnt English in school but the opportunities to practice spoken English are often limited, which is why Bethesda is the right place to meet such need.
Bethesda is from the month of September 2013 offering English conversation classes to the public in the municipality of Pokhara. Courses will be designed for various professionals, business men, students, and house wives etc., who have a desire to improve their spoken English. The conversation classes will be carried out in small groups of 5-6 people to facilitate effective learning. Special emphasis will be given to grammar and pronunciation. Topics for discussion will be chosen according to the special interest and needs of the participants in each group.
The Bethesda group leaders, of which several are native English speakers, others experienced English teachers, will be equipped and certified for the task through TESOL training or equivalent.
