Mobile Language Learning for Nepalese Families

Anspear continued its work with Kent County Council’s Minority Communities Achievement Service (MCAS) to enhance their English language learning provision for ethnic minority communities. A group of mothers, predominantly from Nepal, used Nokia 6303i phones loaded with Anspear English resources as the focus for an informal, weekly meeting at Guston Church of England Primary School, Dover.

The project aimed to establish the extent to which mobile learning can accelerate English language acquisition, and how this impacts on the confidence of learners to participate in community events, access public services, and particularly to engage more fully with their children’s schools. The project helped to improve the women’s confidence in using the English language, and encouraged stronger links between the school and the local community. A full evaluation report provides more information on the results of the project.
