For high school graduates, it is the right time for them to interact with one another and share their experiences from high school and also learn from senior students who have already enrolled in their respective programs.

Adult Classes

The objective of the Sunday Thok Naath Class is to empower some of the Nuer community members who have previously had no time to learn how to read and write in Nuer/Thok Naath. Nuer School Board of Education (NSBE) and teachers have evaluated and decided to address these visible issues by offering classes on Sunday evenings to those who are willingly interested to pursue their learning interests in reading and writing in Nuer. This is another way to transfer knowledge to the community members who didn’t have a chance to practice and comprehend the language thoroughly in a formal learning environment. This will indeed help participants to master Thok Naath and be able to teach Nuer Languages as a teacher and read other materials in Thok Naath such as The Nuer Bible, Nuer Hymnal Books and other materials that are written in Nuer.
