Bridge to English (BTE) was developed as a comprehensive English First Additional Language course intended to build on to the African language mother-tongue Breakthrough to Literacy programme. BTE is designed to develop the oral and literacy skills that prepare children for listening, reading, speaking, and writing English, as an additional language. Through BTE, teachers also develop vital knowledge and skills about teaching and learning in an additional language. Currently, BTE is under audit to ensure its alignment to the Curriculum Assessment Policy Statements and to refine its appeal to a new, more technologically-informed generation.
