Over 500 classes in Kazakh schools to study in English
Kazinform | 26 July 2017

On September 1, the children of over 500 classes in Kazakhstani schools, having written approvals of their parents, will voluntarily switch to studying in English as an experiment, Kazinform correspondent reports.

"This experiment is very important for us. Throughout the year, we will monitor children, teachers of schools. And next year we will have a discussion as per the results of these data with the teaching and parental community. We will adopt the final schedule for teaching in three languages. But, the results for today are very encouraging. Children are not afraid, parents approve, and teachers show good results," Kazakh Minister of Education and Science Yerlan Sagadiyev told a briefing in the Government of the Republic of Kazakhstan.

At the same time. This year, 12,000 Kazakhstani teachers have registered for the English language courses. According to the Ministry of Education and Science, 4,000 of them have already begun to study, the remaining 8,000 will start their studies in September. The courses last 3 to 9 months. "The most serious is 9 months with a visit to the city. At the same time, they hold down employment, and get their wages, scholarships and traveling allowances. On return, if a teacher turns into the category of teaching in English, the salary will increase," the minister added.

Cool experiment. I hope it works out well for them. Would be great to see Kazakhstan be able to compete for jobs with Western Europeans. I've worked with a lot of great engineers from Kazakhstan. The country is stronger in STEM grads than many think.

I work at specialized secondary school that has been teaching content subjects in English for a few years now. The content knowledge of the science and math teachers in KZ is unbelievably high. Additionally, the majority of our 12th graders have IELTS scores of anywhere from 6-8 and have been studying science and other subjects in English for two years in high school. Now, the program is moving into the regular schools, it is a lofty goal but there has been a lot of progress so far. Definitely a country that is moving forward.

Indeed, a country where everyone is learning everything in English is moving forward. Forward indeed. A lofty goal indeed, postroit strany rabov.

If people are bilingual they will have access to more information so there is less of a chance that they will be slaves... (Postroit strany rabov means build a country of slaves). They will also have more options in their lives. Options are not very compatible with slavery. And they're not learning everything in English, just some subjects.
