Notice: I am posting this message on behalf of a group of students in the Agriculture and Forestry Unit here who are embarking on a field trip to Ethiopia and who would like to learn some of the local language (Oromo) before they leave. I don't know if they have any financial resources set aside for this aspect of the project.

We are a group of 6 undergraduate students planning an expedition to The Bale Mountains National Park in Southern Ethiopia this summer. In order to communicate with local people we would really like to learn Oromo and are desperately looking for teachers! If you speak Oromo and would like to help us please contact us at

Thank you!
