Learning more than one language

Speaking many languages
Speaking many languages

The educational system of Papua New Guinea is challenged because of the over 800 languages that school teachers confront as they teach. Most Papua New Guineans end up being multilingual. Research has shown that children who learn to read and write in the language they learned first, learn a second language quicker and easier and tend to do better in the upper grades of school.  Pray for more opportunities for children to learn how to read in their heart languages.
