Location:  Dili Institute of Technology, Aimutin campus. To get there, take
the Comorro road out from the city, and turn inland (left) at the Leader
supermarket. Drive straight through the intersection with the back 'Banana'
road (which links Bairro Pite and Delta). Then take the second road left.
Follow this road until you get to a T-junction, then head right. The campus
is about 100 metres along on your left, up a narrow track through some
paddocks. If catching a taxi, stress that this is the Aimutin campus, not
our old campus in Bairro Pite. Many Timorese know the school as "Eskola

                  plus $17.50 for the Peace Corps East Timor Tetun Language
Course if you don't have it.

Level:        Beginner: Absolute beginner, or can communicate minimally on
everyday topics, but cannot yet ask and answer all basic questions.

                  Intermediate: Can converse, but not yet handle formal

Teachers:  The teachers and tutors will all be East Timorese, with the
exception of the course coordinator, Catharina Williams-van Klinken, who has
a PhD in Tetun.

Method:    Most teaching will be in small groups, with a variety of teachers
and teaching methods. Teaching is monolingual in Tetun, but the book and
some written material uses English.

For those who are beyond the absolute beginner stage, we will schedule a
brief interview before the course, to enable us to determine which group
would most benefit you.
