#1718: English Classes in Haiti (fwd)
From: Black, Patricia <Patricia.Black@pge-corp.com>
I have been invited to join a medical/missionary group on a trip to Pignon,
Haiti for the purpose of teaching English.
I would like to be in touch with others who may have done this. My US-based
ESL material (how to ask directions, ride the bus, etc.) wouldn't be very
appropriate in Haiti. So, I am wondering what English would be most useful
to people living in Haiti and whether anyone knows of classroom material
that would be helpful.
I addition to "how and what", I am also interested in the broader questions
of whether/why, to whom and to what end English should be taught at all.
Please feel free to respond to the list and/or to me directly at
firstname.lastname@example.org <mailto:email@example.com> or by calling me collect in Washington,
DC at 202.234.3111.
