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 (researcher) 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.
It takes a while before Kathleen starts to talk in Sranan. She feels embarrassed to do it while Dorian de Haan is presents. Eventually Dorian leaves the room when Kathleen retells the story. As a result in the beginneing they speak Dutch. The task is to retell a story about a boy and his football. Together the boy and his ball go to a football competition in the park. Unfortunately the boy and his team do not win. After the match he stops to order a fries. He puts his ball in the truck of a car. The car rides off. Fortunately, it stops for a pedestrian crossing where the boy takes his ball back and goes home.
Dorian de Haan is the coordinator/collector of this project. She is of Dutch origin. She works at the University of Utrecht, The Netherlands, at the Developmental Psychology department.

She lived with her aunt in Suriname; her mother was in the Netherlands. May 3rd, 1982 she went to the Netherlands again. She has 2 sisters and a brother. One of her sisters does not like to speak Sranan. Her brother speaks Dutch to her, with others he speaks Sranan. She is in the last form of primary school.
