Course book highlights nine principle topics of the module «First Aid» as a part of the subject «Health and Safety, Disaster Medicine» and contains key questions for each part as well as provisional tests for the students’ self-check. This course book can be helpful for the students taught by means of e-educational systems (including distant learning). The course book is designed for the tertiary medical students taught in English as well as for the foreign students attending classes as a part of the Russian-speaking groups. Besides it can be used as complementary reading by the University students, secondary medical schools students and medical-college students learning English.
Teaching and assessment of listening as an integral part of ELT has been ignored for long in Kenya. Listening has been assumed to be innate. It was not until 2006 that Kenya made efforts to integrate its teaching. This book is the product of a study to measure learners'' listening comprehension competence. The study tested learners'' listening proficiency, listening materials and teaching strategies used. Data was drawn from students and teachers through audio test, questionnaire,and content analysis. Statistics used were, means, ANOVA,correlations and the t- test. Course books were found to be deficient in listening materials,teachers were not deliberately trained on teaching listening skills and students performed poorly in listening. They scored better on explicit items than on inferential items. Urban school students had an edge over the rural students and those in boarding schools performed better on the Listening Comprehension Test (LCT) than those in day schools. There was no consistent relationship between girls'' and boys'' performance. It was concluded that gender did not make a difference in performance in LCT.
The research on which this book is based set out to: identify and describe both phonological and grammatical variations in the English spoken by teachers at primary school level in Kenya, Africa; determine how these variations depart from the British standard variety; correlate the linguistic variation observed with the social variables of ethnicity, gender, educational level and rural-urban dichotomy; and discuss the implications of the emergent sociolinguistic patterns for pedagogy in Kenya and by extension, in other non-native multilingual contexts. The general finding is that the English spoken by teachers at primary school level in Kenya varies from the British standard variety - the model that is supposed to be used at all the education tiers in Kenya. This variation cuts across all the social variables investigated. The study argues for the consideration of the sociolinguistic reality of English in Kenya and adoption of a local variety of English, a variety that will be close to other standard varieties, thus making it possible for Kenyan speakers to maintain mutual intelligibility with international speakers of English while maintaining their Kenyan identity.
The performance of English prepositions by Kenyan secondary school learners is wanting.The Kenyan National Examination Council and the Kenya Institute of Education identified the prepositions as the most difficult part of speech to be mastered by learners.With this in mind,there was a rise in the need to investigate the reasons underlying such difficulties.This book provides an insight into the types of prepositions that are easy and difficult to be conceptualized by learners.Issues of Markedness as a predicator of the preposition difficulties is investigated.The book should help English teachers and stakeholders in Education to come up with the best pedagogy in teaching prepositions in order to attain proper mastery.This is a necessary handbook for those teaching English as a foreign language.
The purpose of this study is to provide a rich description of the role of languages, especially indigenous languages in the secondary curriculum in Bangladesh. Through this research I seek to identify the role of mother languages in education. Bangladesh has a centrally designed curriculum that does not focus on minority languages. Though tribal languages are not included in both the intended and operational curriculum, it affects the classroom teaching practices as well as the tribal students’ life. As the instructional language is Bangla, the cultures, identities and past experiences of the tribal students are not valued in daily classroom learning activities. Drawing on an understanding of curriculum as a tool for the social control of knowledge, I show how the secondary language curriculum promotes social inequality by the intellectual domination of Bangla and English over less prestigious tribal languages by not including indigenous languages, culture and values.

At the long run, the only thing she could do, and actually did do at the point where she had fallen, was to faint, wake up and cry and wish for death to come; and faint back again…. She circumvented this torturous circle with so much grief in her heart until her soul was literally suspended between the two divergent realms of life and death…! This is a story of an underprivileged African boy, Terkimbi Jim, who managed to make it into the university against all odds. He had to battle against generational curses, poverty and his personal aversion for hardship. His father abandoned him with his mother. The mother drudged to keep him in school but she passed away when he was in Junior Secondary School. So he had to endure some forms of hardship both in his secondary and tertiary educations, schools through which he had to sponsor himself…. Set among the Tiv people of Benue State Nigeria, “Tears of a Widow” is a story of human dogged determination to succeed, resilience and endurance in a society which has no pity, plan or structure for helping his kinds. It’s a tale of the survival of the fittest and the elimination of the unfit!
What is it to be human? This question, as in Birdsong, is at the heart of "Human Traces". The story begins in Brittany where a young, poor boy somehow passes his medical exams and goes to Paris, where he attends the lectures of Charcot, the Parisian neurologist who set the world on its head in the 1870s. With a friend, he sets up a clinic in the mysterious mountain district of Carinthia in south-east Austria. If The Girl at the Lion d'Or was a simple three-movement symphony, Birdsong an opera, Charlotte Gray a complex four-movement symphony and On Green Dolphin Street a concerto, then Human Traces is a Wagnerian grand opera.
