We started this language centre in October of 2015, and called it ‘Markaz Attafahum’ which means ‘Centre of Understanding’ in Arabic.
Our hope is that this centre will for many years to come be a hub of learning and deepening understanding: that both expatriates and Chadian nationals would gain deep insight into the languages and cultures of Chad.
- training up tutors and teachers so that we had high quality instruction;
- developing and compiling resources in the local languages for students to use;
- setting up a professional and practical place to have lessons and to study;
- develop a language learning community whereby we encourage and support one another mutually in our language learning.
