Learn Tok Pisin!

Tok Pisin Intensive Courses I and II 
10-14 and 17-21 July, 2017
Prof. Dr. Craig Alan Volker (Visiting Professor, University of Bremen)

Tok Pisin, also known as New Guinea Pidgin English, is a lingua franca of Papua New Guinea.

Competence in Tok Pisin is indispensable for fieldwork, engagement in development projects, or business in Melanesia. A direct engagement with Tok Pisin is also of interest to linguists interested in the structure of pidgin and creole languages and in the results of intensive language contact.

In these intensive courses, students will attain up to A2 and B1 level proficiency. The lessons will be given in Tok Pisin, English, and/or German.
