Currently, Tory is an English Language Fellow with the U.S. Department of State. He is posted in Phuthaditjhaba, South Africa where he lectures on English Language Teaching Methodology at The University of Free-State, Qwaqwa campus and hopes to make a difference in the community through community projects as well as training teachers in the latest ESL practices.
Background- Phuthaditjhaba is a rural township about 3 hours’ drive outside of Johannesburg in the Free-State of South Africa. The majority of the children in the region do not speak English inside of the home and unless enrolled in private school, aren’t really exposed to English on a regular basis outside of the home either. Seeing as how most parents cannot afford to send their young children to private schools where the LOLT (Language of Learning and Teaching) is English and strictly enforced, most township children don’t start speaking English until much past the optimal age for 2nd language acquisition.
