PBH Selects 20 For Africa Work

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

Project Tanganyika has selected 20 students to go to Africa this summer. Ten of the students will stay only for the summer, while the other ten will remain in Tanganyika for a year.

New community centers in Tanganyika will use students from the Project as teachers and recreation leaders. Five students have jobs in a school for refugees established by last year's Project Tanganyika group. Others will take part in full-year teaching programs.

The students will begin studying Swahili in February, as part of their orientation program. Because previous Project groups have had difficulty communicating with the Africans, Project leaders have made this year's Swahili course more extensive. It will be open to all undergraduates of the University.

The orientation program includes instruction in the direct-method of teaching English, a method used when a teacher and pupil do not have a common language.
