Videos Promoting Mother Tongue-Based Multilingual Education (MLE)

UNESCO Bangkok has produced several important MLE program videos now on YouTube. SIL International consultants were among the contributors to the colorful content that captures scenes from MLE classrooms in case studies from South East Asia.

Watch teachers showcase their classroom skills and listen as learners - in their own words - identify issues from their educational experiences and comment on mother tongue-based education.
