New course: Introduction to Writing in Creolese

ABOUT THE COURSE 

Participants will learn a writing system for Guyanese Creole (GC), and increase their awareness about the phonology, vocabulary and syntax of GC. This course will be useful for teachers, media workers, medical practitioners, people in the natural sciences and technology, and others whose professions require keen understanding of the differences between GC and English. Literacy specialists and teachers of CAPE Communications will find it particularly relevant to their work.

PREREQUISITES

The course is open to persons who have achieved the highest tertiary education credentials as well as persons who have had just a basic primary education. Individual competencies will be taken into account, and the collective competence of the class will be engaged to accomplish all tasks. At least one field trip will be scheduled.
