Praia, Sept 6 (Inforpress) – The Cabo Verdean teachers of Portuguese language are participating in the XIII training course for the preparation of teaching materials for the Portal of the Professor of Foreign Portuguese /Non-Maternal Language (PPPLE) promoted by the International Institute of Portuguese Language (IILP).
The course, which takes place in the City of Praia, is organized in partnership with the Portuguese Language Observatory/Second Language of Brazil and with the collaboration of the Ministry of Education.
According to IILP Executive Director, Incanha Intumbo, the aim is to create materials to help teachers meet the challenges of teaching Portuguese in sociolinguistic contexts where it is not a mother tongue.
“It is a tool that helps, that contributes a lot to our language. For us the Portuguese is the tool for access to scientific and technological knowledge. I would like to stress a cross-cutting aspect of the Portuguese language. Mathematics, science are taught in Portuguese and the good mastery of the Portuguese language will allow easy access to scientific knowledge”, he said.
