Learn one-more-Language and interact with a different culture program.
Target Countries: This project seeks to open/encourage Kenyans, East Africans and ALL countries in the African Continent to learn and speak major languages spoken across the world , and also to encourage key trading partners of Africa to learn and speak the main African languages in order to access opportunities in education, businesses, work and social interactions.
We therefore aim to organize interested people to learn one or more language & culture in addition to the languages they already speak. Currently we are targeting the following languages:English, French, Chinese, Korean, German, Swahili (for non-East Africans), Lingala (mainly spoken in Central Africa especially D.R. Congo), Spanish, Russian, Italian, Norwegian, Swedish, Danish, Indian, Arabic, Somali, Amharic, Greek, Turkish, Polish and Portuguese among others.
The following Language learning programs are currently ongoing. Click on the links to learn more.
Task: Recruit participants willing to learn more about the program, Organize a discussion forum for all the recruits so that they can be sensitized on the importance, benefits and advantages of learning one more language other than the ones they speak, identify those willing to join the program and group them according to the language chosen, allocate a competent specific language coach/guide who is fluent in the language chosen by a specific group, monitor the learning process, coordinate the groups and their language coaches and ensure language coaches provide progress reports, organize get-together events where learners are able to interact with people speaking the language they have been practicing-this will build their confidence in communicating with the newly leant additional language, award certificates of participation and where possible connect the participants with opportunities based on the newly leant additional language. Background Information Languages and cultures are the passwords with which we are able to access the beauty and opportunities from a different language and culture environment. If only you could speak one more language and interact with one more culture, life becomes sweeter, exciting, opportunities knock and above all you get to a point of appreciation of your fellow men and women from different language and culture. If this takes place in a place of work, then you enjoy your work environment even better. A recent news bit in which the language and literature maverick Ngugi Wa Thiong’o received an award from the people of Catalonia and gave his acceptance speech in his native Kikuyu language is a perfect example of how languages have become very important.
Project Implementation: Target Countries : Starting with Kenya and gradually scaled to other countries in the East African Community and Africa at large.
