Three hundred primary school teachers will be sent for training after they failed a Grade 3 English first additional language test.

The Basic Education Department says this should not come as a shock because English is not the home language of many teachers
.
The Zenex Foundation found the English proficiency of the teachers tested in the Western Cape, the Eastern Cape and KwaZulu-Natal is comparable to that of a Grade 3 learner.


Basic Education's Elijah Mahlangu says the department is aware English is challenging for some teachers.
