Prepare for success: how our Tok Pisin course can help improve your experience in Papua New Guinea

Moving to a new country is an exciting but challenging experience, especially for expats. Papua New Guinea is a beautiful country with a unique culture, but it can be overwhelming to navigate for someone who is not familiar with the local customs and traditions.

Language Barrier

One of the biggest challenges that expats face when moving to PNG is the language barrier. With over 800 indigenous languages spoken in the country, communication can be difficult for expats who do not speak the local languages. However, Tok Pisin, the most widely spoken language in PNG, can help expats communicate with the locals. Our course provides an introduction to the Tok Pisin language, which is specifically designed for expats without prior knowledge of the language. It can help expats build their confidence in communicating with locals and navigate everyday life in the country more easily.


Navigating Practical Matters

Moving to a new country can be overwhelming, especially when it comes to practical matters such as going to the market, telephone conversations, setting up utilities, and asking simple directions. Our course provides valuable information on practical matters such as daily activities, the environment and the workplace. It can help expats prepare for the move, navigate the practical aspects of life in PNG, and feel more confident and prepared as they start their new life in the country.


Embracing cultures differences by learning with Papua New Guineans 


Papua New Guinea has a rich and unique culture, and it can take time for expats to adapt to the local customs and traditions. Understanding and respecting the local culture is crucial to building relationships and integrating into the community. Our course provides an introduction to Papua New Guinea culture, including topics such as social customs, PNG ceremonies, traditions, and local beliefs. By learning about the local culture, expats can show their respect for it and engage with the locals on a deeper level, which can help to build trust and create stronger relationships.


One of the key benefits of our online course is that it provides a structured and supportive learning environment through 10 sessions that allows students to learn at their own pace. Our experienced instructors are native speakers of Tok Pisin and have extensive knowledge of the language and culture with authentic experiences to share. They provide personalized feedback and support throughout the course, and are available to answer any questions and provide additional guidance as needed.

If you are an expat in PNG or planning to move to PNG consider taking our course to help you prepare for a more successful life in PNG.
