Praia, Jan 7 (Inforpress) – The University of Cabo Verde (Uni-CV) started this Monday, in the City of Praia, the first masters course in English Studies.
The course, which is sponsored by the University of Porto, Portugal, Bridgewater State University and the United States Embassy in Cabo Verde, aims to promote the “efficient use” of technological resources applicable to English language teaching and learning.
At the official opening of the course, the rector of Uni-CV, Judite Nascimento, said it is an “innovative” project for embodying what is the “new philosophy” and approach of the institution, which is the bet on new technologies as a way to overcome the obstacles inherent to the country’s island status.
“This is a project that is also unprecedented in this sense, because the use of new technologies through the Distance Training Center will allow teachers and other stakeholders to have access to the masters course,” she explained. In turn, the United States Ambassador to Cabo Verde, Jeff Daigle, reiterated that the promotion of the English language is one of the priorities of his mission in Cabo Verde.
