On Friday, 26 will discuss the advantages of bilingual education since many people still question the Avane’ teaching in schools. Finally, we will discuss the Guarani in high school. Criticism of the books. In educational materials are words that were created, which is poorly understood and there is much jopara or jehe’a. “There are words that were created without foundation, nobody uses them, only appear in educational materials.
At the other extreme is the abuse of Castilian in the context of the Guarani when there is no way to say in Guarani,” said Nancy Benitez, the MEC . He stressed that the Ministry aims to create a rule for knowing when, how much you can make up words and making loans from Spanish.
