Judy Manton, long-time friend of Zigen, had volunteered for Zigen’s Rural English Teachers’ Training Program since 2004, almost every year. She has been well-travelled to Zigen project sites in Guizhou, Shanxi and Hebei provinces.

In August of 2016, the Rural English Teachers’ Training was held at a new location, namely, the training center at Hebei Normal University. Sixty trainees from rural schools of twenty-six counties participated the two-week long training session. Judy Manton teamed up with Cynthia Wiseman, associate professor of Borough of Manhattan Community College, Zhang Yuan, Jenny Cho and Wenxin Zhang for this occasion.

The trainers used a multitude of participatory teaching methods, such as role playing, games, singing, and multimedia. Many participants said the two-week training had been a transforming experience. After the training, they say they are no longer afraid of making mistakes while speaking in English, and have more confidence to express themselves in English. They also greatly appreciate the devotion and professionalism of the training team.

While members of the training team paid their own travel expenses, Zigen and the training center of Hebei Normal University supported and organized the program.
