Description:Recording took place during primary school hours (08:30 AM-03:30 PM) at a primary school in a separate classroom. Recording was done by Dorian de Haan between 1984-1986.
Goal of this project is to get a clear view of the command of Sarnami and/or Sranan of primary school children of Suriname origin and to study their command of Dutch.
Dorian de Haan talks with 2 girls, Farna and Soraya, about school (which subjects they find difficult/ not difficult, like/do not like), the languages they speak, religious celebrations, Urdu languages courses, Suriname and their arrival in the Netherlands.
