A group of teachers, all members of the National Union of Teachers, has arrived in Nicaragua for a three week exchange visit. The visit will focus on discussions and methodology around the teaching of a second language. The NUT members, all of whom are experienced teachers of Spanish as a second language, will take part in workshops and practical sessions with Nicaraguan teachers of English as a second language. They will stay in the homes of members of the Nicaraguan teachers' union ANDEN and therefore also learn something about Nicaraguan culture and their way of life. During the first week of their stay, the group will be in Nicaragua's capital Managua. After that, some of the group will remain in Managua, while others will travel to Esteli, Chinandega, Carazo and Granada to work with teachers in local schools. The programme has been organised by ANDEN and the Nicaraguan Ministry of Education MINED.

The delegation's first meeting took place on Monday, when they received a very interesting presentation of MINED's national English training programme and met members of Nicaragua's National English Commission.
