Abstract

The purpose of this study was to indicate the extent of change observed in the classroom practice of teachers participating in EIA with reference to that observed in a baseline study of a sample of schools prior to the intervention. It was a large-scale quantitative observation study of teaching and language practices among teachers and students participating in the EIA Primary and Secondary programmes. A feature of improved English language teaching is an increase in the amount of student talk in lessons, as well as an increase in the use of the target language by both teachers and students. Thus this study focused upon the use of English by teachers and students, the extent of teacher and student talk time, the nature of the teachers' talk, as well as the nature of the activities that students took part in One lesson from each of the 350 Primary teachers and 141 of the Secondary teachers were observed.
