Path from Vernacular to English Course

The Vernacular Path to English (VPE) Course (August 5-19) is a joint venture between SIL and the National Department of Education. VPE is designed to help rural children bridge from education in their home languages to English the National language of Papua New Guinea. SIL literacy consultants published the VPE Resource Manual, to equip 16 educators from the National Curriculum Development Division and different government institutions. These individuals will take the training back to their provinces. Ultimately Elementary trainers will deliver the training to elementary teachers throughout Papua New Guinea. Gertrude spent four weeks helping colleagues organize and teach the course.
