Solomon Islands Pijin: Culture and Communication Handbook. Peace Corps Language Handbook Series.
Huebner, Thom; Horoi, Stephen Rex
This handbook of the Pijin language is divided into four parts: (1) survival language skills, (2) situations in which the Peace Corps volunteer is likely to be involved, (3) getting the job done, and (4) information on the culture of the Solomon Islands. It establishes classroom activities that require the students to exchange messages in a way that is appropriate to the cultural context. Most of the lessons are divided into basic and supplementary material sections. Generally there are six elements in each lesson: (1)objective, (2) basic material and translation, (3) cultural usage notes, (4) class activities, (5) outside activities, and (6) references. The book is illustrated with pen-and-ink drawings. (AMH)
