CASE STUDY

CHILD: MARCELO DA COSTA, 14 YEARS OLD, GRADE 4 (PICTURED LEFT)

There are five people in my household. 

 

I’m in this village, its very quick to get to school.

 

I like learning Tetun.

 

I want to be a teacher. I just like it.

 

I like the stories in Lafaek and the teaching. My favourite part is the dancing story [this is about a traditional ceremonial dance].

 

I would like to see more snakes in Lafaek.

 

At home I read Lafaek. And two books. A Portuguese one and a Tetun one.

 

I worry about snakes. There are lots of snakes in the bush. I saw a big one last year in the coffee plantation.

 

The funniest thing that has happened in my village is when people fall over. They stubbed their toe and fall over. It happened to my parents. That’s funny! 

 

In the future I hope to make a good family and to love each other.
