Hindi, Fijian a uni must

"New teacher requirements"

TEACHERS will need to be fluent in Hindi and Fijian to graduate from the Fiji National University from next year.

This was the message from vice chancellor Dr Ganesh Chand at the opening of the university's National Education Conference in Lautoka on Monday.

Dr Chand said by next year all teacher trainees would be required to be fluent in Hindi and Fijian or they would not be able to graduate.

He confirmed that the level of competency in both languages would need to be according to the Nai Lalakai and Shanti Dut standard.

Dr Chand said the move was an initial response to a number of challenges by the university in regard to the People's Charter for Change and Development.

He said he hoped it would be a strong motivation for other sectors of society to do the right thing in ensuring a society that respected diversity and encouraged unity. "For without language understanding, there is not much of a chance for society to be united," said Dr Chand....................

WHAT HAPPENNED TO "WHEN IN ROME DO AS THE ROMANS DO"?

IS IT FAIR FOR A NATIVE OF FIJI "TAUKEI" TO LEARN HINDI ON TOP OF THE REQUIRED ENGLISH STANDARD LANGUAGE? OR MAYBE THE VULAGI SHOULD LEARN THE FIJIAN LANGUAGE AS PART OF BEING A CITIZEN OF FIJI.

I am new to this forum...but to answer your question...it is fair to for Fijian to learn the Hindi language...as that is the only way we could finally understand one another's worldview...Trying to understand an Indian using English as a medium is the dumbest idea ever brought to us...to be blunt...Viceversa...the indians should learn the fijian language...
