The British Council’s Military English Support Project (MESP) adopted DynEd courseware to train peacekeeping forces in Bosnia. This blended program demonstrated how DynEd multimedia can be a cost-effective solution in areas with special needs.
An important feature of this program was the use of officer instructors in countrywide mini-centers. These officer instructors first studied in the DynEd program and then were trained in English teaching methodology. Following their training, these officers worked with beginner/elementary level students who could then continue on into larger centers for pre-intermediate to advanced English courses. One officer commented: “The course has a lot of speaking and listening, and we all need exactly that. My progress in English is much better than before.”
