Photo compliments: Dionne DurandRoseau, Dominica – July 13th, 2012…The Argentine Republic will fund training of primary and secondary school Spanish teachers following a request from the Government of Dominica.A delegation from the Argentine Ministry of Education earlier this week concluded a fact finding mission here to assess the needs of Dominican schools in the teaching of Spanish as a foreign language.The Argentine officials met with Education Officials, principals and Spanish teachers to discuss the challenges faced teaching Spanish in schools here. Leonor Corradi of Argentina’s Ministry of Education said the project is part of a programme within her country’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs which seeks to promote cooperation among countries in the Southern Hemisphere.“Argentina is interested in helping Dominica in the implementation of Spanish in primary and secondary schools and with teacher education. This came about after a request from the Government of Dominica. “So this is the first mission to see the context, to see your needs, so as to prepare a project to train teachers both in their levels of Spanish and in pedagogical areas,” Corradi said. She said the training would focus on the development of the human resource capacity in Dominican schools in order to improve the study of Spanish.“This idea of assistance is based on sending experts to work with the teachers and principals of Dominican primary and secondary schools. The other part of the project is the idea of bringing teaches to Argentina to do a course in language and culture,” she explained.The project will be implemented over a two-year period.Press Release Share Sharelast_img read more

Chelsea consider Twickenham move

first_img The RFU has confirmed it has been sounded out about the prospect of the Premier League club using the 82,000-capacity home of English rugby if Stamford Bridge is redeveloped. Chelsea announced in June that they are looking at possible expansion plans for their stadium, although dates for any work have not been specified. It had previously been mooted that the club could seek out a permanent new home, however suitable London sites are in short supply. Chelsea have taken the first step towards a possible temporary move to Twickenham after making an approach to the Rugby Football Union. The Scottish Rugby Union has allowed Murrayfield to be used for club football, with Celtic playing European games at the Edinburgh stadium earlier this year while Celtic Park and Hampden were tied up during the Commonwealth Games. Twickenham has previously refused football teams permission to move in for short periods, with the then RFU chief executive Francis Baron saying in 2001, when Fulham were seeking a temporary home, that “we are not interested”, citing difficulties with segregation of supporters along with traffic and policing issues. The RFU said in a statement: “We are regularly contacted by a variety of organisations, within and outside sport, on a wide range of opportunities concerning use of what we believe is a world-class stadium. We have had an enquiry from Chelsea FC but have not had any discussions of any substance. “While we don’t comment on any specific confidential conversations, each request is taken on its merit, assessing a variety of factors, such as the effect on the pitch, availability, transport and local considerations and other important implications.” It is understood the RFU considers the enquiry to be a long way short of indicating that Chelsea have chosen Twickenham as the stadium they specifically would want to move to, should redevelopment work at Stamford Bridge necessitate a ground move. There are thought to be other stadiums under consideration by the club owned by Russian billionaire Roman Abramovich. Tottenham have recently been linked with a move to play a number of games at Wembley in the 2017/18 season while their new home is built. A Chelsea spokesman said: “We’re investigating different scenarios as part of the consultation process we started earlier this year, but have had no discussions of substance so far.” center_img Press Associationlast_img read more

Sadio Mane sinks Norwich City as Liverpool go 25 points clear

first_imgLONDON: Liverpool’s Sadio Mane marked his return from injury with a late goal to break Norwich City’s resistance and secure a 1-0 win on Saturday to extend his side’s Premier League lead to 25 points.On a windy evening, bottom club Norwich was proving a tough nut to crack for Juergen Klopp’s team but Senegalese forward Mane, who came on as a substitute on the hour, pounced to drill home a fine finish from inside the area in the 78th minute.It was his first appearance since going off injured in Liverpool’s win at Wolverhampton Wanderers on Jan. 23 and he marked it by claiming the 100th goal in English football.A battling Norwich had defended resolutely and twice came close to taking the lead, but Liverpool’s relentless romp towards a first English title for 30 years continued.The victory was their 34th in their last 35 league games and their 17th in succession, one shy of Manchester City’s record.They have scored in 35 successive Premier League games, are unbeaten in their last 43 and have conceded only once in their last 11 league games.Fifteen more points will guarantee them the title as they have collected 76 points out of a possible 78, now 25 ahead of Manchester City, who have played a game less.“It was a difficult game for different reasons,” Klopp said. “The wind, the organization of the opponent and the way we played in the first half made it tricky for us.“Sadio was fresh and made the difference.”Norwich, for whom Alexander Tettey struck the woodwork in the second half, remain seven points adrift of 17th-placed Aston Villa who hosts Tottenham Hotspur on Sunday.They battled until the end, however, and Teemu Pukki fired straight at Alisson in the 89th minute after a flowing move.Liverpool began the match 55 points ahead of Norwich, the biggest ever gap between top and bottom after 25 games in the Premier League, but lacked their usual cutting edge.They enjoyed overwhelming territorial superiority in the first half with Trent Alexander-Arnold especially dangerous in the wide-open spaces down the right flank.Yet Liverpool struggled to create clear-cut chances and it was Norwich who should have taken the lead when Lukas Rupp was picked out by a long ball with the visiting defense nowhere, having pushed up for offside.The second half was a Liverpool siege with keeper Tim Krul saving Norwich several times. The Dutchman produced a fingertip save to keep out Naby Keita’s powerful effort than a magnificent double stop to deny Mohamed Salah and Keita again.Norwich’s excursions into Liverpool territory were few and far between but one ended with Tettey’s slightly miscued effort thudding against Alisson’s near post.It was Mane, on for Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, who eventually broke the deadlock with a superb finish.Bringing down Jordan Henderson’s flighted pass with his outstretched right leg, he then swiveled and crashed a low shot with his left foot past the helpless Krul.There was a suspicion that Mane had pushed a marker as he brought the ball down, but VAR ruled in his favour.With the title virtually assured, Liverpool turns their attention to their defense of the Champions League on Tuesday when they visit Atletico Madrid at the Wanda Metropolitano stadium, scene of their triumph in the final last season.Vydra stunner gives Burnley win at SouthamptonMatej Vydra’s stunning strike earned Burnley a 2-1 victory at Southampton to move them into the top half of the Premier League table on a wet and wild Saturday at St Mary’s Stadium.The Czech player, who replaced injured Burnley striker Chris Wood midway through the opening half, had hardly had a sniff of goal but produced a dazzling finish on the hour.It was a sickener for Southampton, who had looked the more likely winners after former Burnley player Danny Ings had equalized in the 18th minute with his 15th goal of the season.Burnley had taken the lead in the second minute with a bizarre curled goal straight from a corner taken by Ashley Westwood.Vydra won it when he chested the ball down on the edge of the area and edged it past a Southampton defender before stretching to crash a left-foot shot past keeper Alex McCarthy.Burnley hung on relatively comfortably as Southampton struggled to create much in a strengthening wind.A third win in their last four league games lifted Burnley into 10th place with 34 points from 26 games, while Southampton remained in 13th place on 31 points.
