The Minister of Education of the Government of National Unity, Musa al-Maqryif, has reviewed the efforts of teaching English to students of different levels of education.

This came during his meeting, on Monday, with the British Deputy Ambassador to Libya, Catherine Wilde, and her accompanying delegation, which included a number of British Council officials.

The meeting discussed the importance of cooperation between the Ministry and the Council in training a number of English language teachers on methods of teaching English, given that it is a basic language for students from the first grade of basic education.

Al-Maqryif expressed the Ministry's readiness to cooperate with the British Embassy in Libya and the British Council, stressing the importance of the British side's contribution to the development of the education system in Libya.

For her part, Wilde confirmed their enthusiasm for teaching the English language in Libya, expressing her happiness at the continuation of cooperation and communication between the two sides, referring in her speech to the Chevening Scholarship, which is funded by the British Foreign Office and in which Libyan students participate.

At the end of the meeting, the Deputy British Ambassador to Libya handed the Minister of Education an invitation signed by the British Minister of State for Education to attend the annual Global Education Forum, which will be held in London from May 7 to 10.
