Peacekeeping English Project

Sarajevo, Bosnia

The British Council’s Military English Support Project (MESP) adopted DynEd courseware to train peacekeeping forces in Bosnia. This blended program demonstrated how DynEd multimedia can be a cost-effective solution in areas with special needs.

An important feature of this program was the use of officer instructors in countrywide mini-centers. These officer instructors first studied in the DynEd program and then were trained in English teaching methodology. Following their training, these officers worked with beginner/elementary level students who could then continue on into larger centers for pre-intermediate to advanced English courses. One officer commented: “The course has a lot of speaking and listening, and we all need exactly that. My progress in English is much better than before.”
