Wanted - Native Swahili Speakers
- Good Afternoon
I am writing to get out the word about a project being undertaken by
a small, local language and cross-cultural organization located in
Belmont, MA and called Lex Language Project. They are currently
planning to prepare and record a Swahili language learning CD, and
are looking for a native Swahili speaker from Tanzania or coastal
Kenya to help them organize the scripts, find actors to speak on the
CD and generally spearhead the project. This would be a paid
position, lasting for approximately 50 60 hours.
When I first found out about the project, and their difficulty
locating Swahili speakers, I immediately thought that someone in the
BARPCV community may be aware of native speakers living in the Boston
area. If you know of anyone who might be interested in this
opportunity, I would appreciate it if you could put them in touch
with Lex Language Project directly, at the e-mail address below. A
little more information about the position, as well as Lex Language
Project's contact information follows:
