Visiting the FPI in Curaçao

12 03 2011

On thursday Quito Nicolaas visited the FPI (Fundashon Planifikashon di Idioma) in Curaçao. This institute promotes the languages in the community and regulates the linguistic situation on the island. The languages concerned are: Papiamentu, Dutch, Spanish and English.

Nicolaas toured the FPI and had an interesting talk with its director mr. Ronald Severing. Besides other themes they touched on the development of  Papiamentu in Curaçao and Papiamento in Aruba. This was surely one of the topics not to be missed. A succesful visit.
