About the Language Development and Training Unit PDF Print

The Language Development and Training Unit provides training and resources to equip speakers of minority languages in this region to develop and preserve their language. Training includes how to:

  • create reading books and teaching materials for literacy in the mother tongue, including transitional materials to the national language,
  • plan a literacy program,
  • develop a dictionary,
  • translate materials accurately and clearly, in a way that sounds natural for that language,
  • create artistic forms of communication from their own culture such as music and poetry,
  • develop and apply materials in one's mother tongue that are based on the Scriptures for use in one's language community.
