MERP is designed to provide Myanmar learners of English with a simple and enjoyable way to increase their fluency in English.

It does this by:

  • providing exposure to English outside the classroom for learners who do not read or hear English in their everyday lives
  • enabling students of English to learn by themselves in situations where their teachers lack proficiency and experience
  • establishing a habit of reading for pleasure in English
  • offering a viable alternative to rote learning
  • promoting critical thinking
