Angolese students blame bad teaching for poor Portuguese language skills

Tuesday, July 12, 2011

From here in Portuguese:
The lack of rigor in the system of education and teaching in public institutions is the main Achilles heel......Angolans have trouble with conjugating verbs in the conjunctive...the Voice of America investigated some institutions of public education, where students showed difficulties in conjugating the verb dar (give) in the present subjunctive..."It's not our fault. We don't learn to conjugate verbs, and our teachers are to blame for this."
The article ends with a Latin phrase: "Errare humanum est, sed perseverare in malo periculosum est" - "To err is human, but to remain in error is dangerous."
