Event description

Description

The Fullah Friends of South Australia in partnership with Fulbe Australia Inc, the Multicultural Communities Council of South Australia (MCCSA), the African Communities Council of South Australia (ACCSA) and South Australia’s diverse ethnic speaking communities will be hosting ‘Lost in Translation’ language conference in Adelaide in which Fulani speaking African Australians from interstate will be in attendance.

This conference will primarily be looking at the challenges new and emerging communities face adjusting their thought flow process to a second language. It aims to give participants the opportunities to look at how easily we can misunderstand each other from the way we speak based on our culture and language background.

We want to bring different communities together to participate in this informative language conference to objectively discuss the importance of language and culture in our adopted country and give participants the opportunity to workshop how we can address the challenges posed by the misperception of our thoughts and actions by others in our community. What is acceptable and normal to someone can easily be misinterpreted leading to a negative chain reaction. We believe that having a dialogue around some of these issues will go a long way in improving community relations.

The conference will include keynote speeches from a variety of established and emerging ethnic groups across South Australia and interstate, followed by a workshop in the afternoon.

Speakers include:

Mr Darryl Buchanan
Executive Officer, Ethnic Schools Association of South Australia

John Rice
Lecturer, English Language Centre, Tafe SA

Dr Sulaiman Jalloh
Lecturer, Darwin University
