Learning Tok Pisin

The 3 official languages in Papua New Guinea are: English, Tok Pisin, and Hiri Motu. However, most Papua New Guineans speak one of over 800 indigenous languages. Tok Pisin is a trade language that most Papua New Guineans speak to communicate among language groups.

Every morning we'd have Tok Pisin class with a Papua New Guinean. Then we'd have opportunities to go out in the community and use our Tok Pisin.
