[Video: Shot of Indiana University's Betty Dlamini with her back to the camera, walking into a classroom, while Kabwende school students sit outside.]
Dlamini speaks: I came here to run a three-day workshop for the teachers of English in this country. I understand the country has been a French-speaking country …
[Video: Cut to a close-up shot of Dlamini in an interview speaking to the camera.]
Dlamini speaks: … and they changed the policy, and in schools they use English as a medium of instruction. So the teachers have that challenge. I'm here to help them deal with that.
[Video: Close-up of teachers in the classroom taking notes and sitting at desks. Cut to Dlamini leading a class discussion and training session with the teachers. Cut to a shot of a teacher standing and speaking to the class.]
Dlamini speaks: When we facilitate a workshop whose participants are in this wide spectrum, you have to try and play around fitting in everybody.
[Video: Dlamini is singing and clapping, leading the teachers in the classroom in song]
Dlamini speaks: So I use the communicative approach which could work for people at various levels.
[Video: A teacher stands and reads from a piece of paper.]
Dlamini speaks: So this is a safe space for them to speak in English and make mistakes.
[Video: Close-up shot of teacher reading and looking at papers in a folder while a young boy looks on.]
Dlamini speaks: Whether it's pronunciation or grammar, it is OK.
[Video: Dlamini stands in the classroom, teaching and speaking to the teachers in the room. Cut to teachers sitting at desks in the classroom listening to Dlamini.]
Dlamini speaks: But this has helped me to see the strength of doing those things from seeing them change within the three days.
