British Council to train Jordanian teachers

The British Council has introduced a course within its English Teacher Training for Deaf people (ETTD) project to empower people with hearing and speech impairments using Jordanian Sign Language, Jordan Times has reported. The project aims to enhance the capacity of teachers of people who are deaf, as well as to encourage peer support among students, said ETTD Project Coordinator, Paul Scott, and Project Officer, Mohammad Salha. "This course supports the deaf community by helping them acquire basic reading and writing language skills, as well as teaching skills," Scott said.
