The English language is the most spoken language all over the world. Olongapo City Mayor James “Bong” Gordon wants Olongapeños to master the English language.

Gordon would like that the English-speaking foreign nationals to help teach the language. But, in the meantime, Mayor Gordon would want to make it possible that reading of an English-language newspaper be a daily habit among the youth of Olongapo.

That is why, this school year through the help of one of the “Metrobank’s 2009 Outstanding Teachers,” Eva B. Imingan, Nellie E. Brown Elementary School (Nebes) will have its own Inquirer Learning Corner (ILC).

Imingan sought the Mayor Gorson’s sponsorship through Melissa Carabeo, head of Nebes Parents-Teachers Association.

Nebes, headed by Principal Virginia J. Mira, got “The Best School Award in Reading” for school year 2006-2007 from the Olongapo City Department of Education division. It is because of the students marked improvement in performances in the division, regional, and national achievement tests.

Gordon said that as long as the budget allows he will grant similar requests from the other schools in Olongapo City.
