Editor’s note: Effective teaching and development come after careful and intensive study. We need to learn about our learners’ cultural, linguistic, educational, socio-economic, religious, political, and historical background before we can make sensible and sustainable recommendations and decisions about teaching methods and techniques, tempo and intensity, coursebooks and levels, and integration or streaming.
After two-and-a-half years into the project, a lot has changed at our partner institutions, and each new term we are asked to expand our work. This did not seem possible at first, and it certainly is not normal – time to take a closer look at what we did and intend to do over the next two-and-a-half years.
