Sharon Mulenga, a grade two pupil at Ngwelele Primary School in Lusaka can only communicate in Bemba and Nyanja as these are the languages she is familiar with. Bemba is used at home and Nyanja is a means of communication in the community she lives. Before the change of curriculum, she had difficulties understanding concepts in class as they were taught using English.
