Saturday, on our way home from the 3 day hike, we passed through a village, that had their own school. If you look closely, you'll note that all the words on the board are in English. At most of the schools we encountered, most of the instruction was done in English. There are some villages that are starting schools that are teaching children their "Tok Ples", their own heart language that their parents speak. Children often can understand their Tok Ples, but are unable to speak it, because they use Tok Pisin more frequently, and are taught English in school.
