This project report attempts to document how reading in English is taught in primary schools in Malawi, and how well the pupils read in English. Because of time constraints, it is a descriptive survey based on five schools, and not on a national sample. Its results may serve as a contribution to the information base of those who are developing strategies to provide a better educational foundation for the country's schoolchildren.
