Wisconsin International University College, Ghana, and the Meltwater School of Technology (MEST), a private education institution engaged in the training, design, and development of business models for Entrepreneurs from across various African countries including Francophone countries have formalized a collaboration agreement for the training of MEST entrepreneurs selected from non-English speaking countries.
The collaboration between the two institutions is expected to center around the Teaching and learning of the English language, Graduation events, and any other educational activity in Ghana.
The agreement comes on the back of a one-off training in English Language offered by Wisconsin International University College, Ghana where nine young Tech Entrepreneurs selected from nine countries across Africa went through a one-month intensive English proficiency course under the auspices of the Wisconsin English Language Center.
The one-month training formed part of the exercises the entrepreneurs mostly from Francophone, Arabic, Spanish, and Portuguese backgrounds are made to undergo to gain proficiency in the English language as a second language during their training at MEST.
At the said event, Mrs. Emily Fiagbedzi the Director of the Training Program at MEST AFRICA said the decision to train their students at WIUC-Ghana English Proficiency Centre was a result of the diversity of faculty from different countries, rigor, and structure of the program offered at the Centre which she said were attributes that aligns with what they stand for at MEST Africa.
