Abstract:

Minority language speakers need opportunities that enable them to develop their own capacity as educators. The Linguistics Institute Training Unit of Payap University in Thailand sponsors one such opportunity, a 9-month literacy internship program. This is one case of how that program enabled a young woman from a minority language group to learn about and receive training for mother tongue literacy work and do a practicum among her own language group.
