In June 2007, Rwanda joined the East African Community and soon after, President Paul Kagame’s visionary leadership created a development Roadmap labeled “Vision 2020” to transform Rwanda’s economy into a regional hub for services and industry. In order to ensure regional integration into an English-speaking East African Community, the Rwandan government made English the third official language of Rwanda in 2008, unlocking thus a tremendous national need and subsequent effort to teach English to Rwandan citizens, business executives, and government officials.

Today, foreign investors speak of Rwanda as one of the safest places in Africa, as well as one of the least corrupt. This year, Rwanda jumped 78 spots in the World Bank’s “Doing Business” study.

Today you can help Rwanda fulfill its dream of regional integration and global prosperity.

Our time is now. Let’s drive the entrepreneurial spirit. Let’s lead the change we all care for.

Confuse.The pronunciation in english is the are where students have the most confusion and thats make them not confident in speaking. every lesson should dedicate some time having pronunciation exercises. Get close to a native speaker pronunciation require hard work and time and pressure from the teacher. The best way to improve the pronunciation is listen and repeat many time as the pronunciation will be perfect.
