Mother Tongue, Urdu or English? – Live Webinar

While schools in Pakistan have shifted to becoming “English-medium,” TCF has remained firmly Urdu-medium. Ten years ago, TCF began developing its own textbooks and curriculum in Urdu. Today, following three years of research, TCF has announced a move to providing education in the languages that children speak at home. Join this webinar to hear about TCF’s research-based approach to language and how it has worked in practice.
