Abstract

English in Action (EIA) is a programme requested by the Government of Bangladesh in response to the poor English language skills of the population. The project’s purpose is ‘to increase significantly the number of people able to communicate in English to levels that enable them to participate fully in economic and social activities and opportunities.’(EIA, 2008)

In this paper we focus on the implementation of the pilot stage of the project and the challenges that have been encountered in introducing resources and materials.
