SMP Language and Culture Workshops 2018

22 May 2018


The Scotland Malawi Partnership is pleased once again to be hosting a series of language workshops for its members and interested stakeholders.

Participants are invited to attend three evenings covering basic language and culture. 

These will be conducted in Chichewa and there are limited places so please book quickly to avoid disappointment.

Based on feedback from previous events, this year the workshops will be tailored to offer basic language and cultural training. This will be ideal in advance of a visit to partners in Malawi, or for people who are interested in a short introduction to the basics of Chichewa.

The workshops will:

  • Introduce basic conversational and grammatical examples, and key phrases
  • Build on cultural awareness (e.g important historical stories, ceremonies, body language, cultural sensitivities, etc)
  • Develop the confidence of Scottish partners to communicate at an introductory level with their Malawian counterparts
