The Voice of the Abau

Abau mo hiymon-sorasor buk hom non

There are approximately 25 villages where the Abau language is spoken. Nearly all of these villages have their own Elementary School.
The Abau Project has developed a series of schoolbooks that can be used in Elementary Prep, Elementary One and Elementary Two.

In Elementary Prep only Abau is used. In Elementary One and especially in Elementary Two a transition is made to the English language.

The overview below shows the covers of the various schoolbooks that are in stock and for sale.
Headings show in what year of the Elementary School the books on display need to be used.
A number of Teacher Guides are available.

Sale price per copy is indicated. These books can be purchased at the Abau Training Centre in Yabru village.
The Abau Training Centre accepts valid Education checks from the Sandaun Provincial Government.
