Jost Gippert: Our Featured Linguist!

"Buenos dias", "buenas noches" -- this was the first words in a foreign language I heard in my life, as a three-year old boy growing up in developing post-war Western Germany, where the first gastarbeiters had arrived from Spain. Fascinated by the strange sounds, I tried to get to know some more languages, the only opportunity being TV courses of English and French -- there was no foreign language education for pre-teen school children in Germany yet in those days.

Title: A relevância pedagógica na construção de propostas de educação bilíngue intercultural
Written By: Caroline Pereira de Oliveira
URL: http://lincom-shop.eu
Series Title: LINCOM Studies in Bilingual Education 02

Neste trabalho tratamos das práticas pedagógicas de acadêmicos indígenas
do Povo Iny – ou Povo Karajá – durante suas atividades no Estágio
Pedagógico do Curso de Licenciatura Intercultural de Formação Superior de
Professores Indígenas da Universidade Federal de Goiás.
O desenvolvimento deste estudo se deu durante os 4 (quatro) primeiros anos
do referido curso, e, portanto, este trabalho também apresenta o
desenvolvimento, o processo de acompanhamento, descobertas, pesquisas
e diálogo necessários para o caminhar das atividades.
A educação bilíngue intercultural transdisciplinar faz parte da rotina de
estudos dos acadêmicos do curso, bem como o tipo de educação que os
indígenas e suas respectivas comunidades solicitam, além também de um
novo olhar perante as relações interculturais entre os povos, e o tipo de
bilinguismo instaurado em suas vidas, e, consequentemente, em suas
práticas pedagógicas.
Acompanhamos, portanto, ao longo deste estudo os trabalhos de 2 (dois)
acadêmicos, Malu Karajá e Leandro Lariwana Karajá, em suas 4 (quatro)
etapas de estágio pedagógico. Estas ações se deram em terras indígenas
nas comunidades de Btõiry/Fontoura – TO e JK – TO.
