Gilmour launches Early Lingo program

Wednesday, August 20, 2014

Update: 12:57PM THE founder of Fiji Water, David Gilmour, came to harbour front today to launch the Early Lingo Programme in Eastern division schools.

The program will immerse children in the English Language from an early age.

"English is the international language of business and government, so it's imperative that Fiji's young people be prepared to succeed in a highly competitive and complex market place," Mr Gilmour said today.

"It is clearly a success; it has been tested and approved by the Europe education board and United States."

Primary school and early education teachers participate in a two-day workshop to help teach them the skills necessary for this program.
