Datapoint Nengee/Domains of use: school

Since 1999, an experimental project has been underway in western French Guiana, which is formally called 'Mediateurs culturelle Bilingue' and now referred to as 'Intervenant en langue maternelle'. Its aim is to encourage the use of mother tongues in the school setting. Nengee is one of the languages that is involved in this project. Pupils receive about 3 hours of instruction in and through Nengee per week (Migge & Léglise 2010).
