Sun.Star Cagayan de Oro - - Top stories - By Jo Ann Sablad

THE pro­vin­cial capi­tol of Misamis Ori­en­tal will soon be of­fer­ing classes for three lan­guages as Gov­er­nor Yevgeny Emano will be send­ing six of his em­ploy­ees to Manila for train­ing.

Ac­cord­ing to Pro­vin­cial In­for­ma­tion Of­fi­cer Ni­cole Manag­banag, Emano has been plan­ning to send six capi­tol em­ploy­ees to Manila to train them in three lan­guages: Ni­hongo, Man­darin and Ara­bic.

Two em­ploy­ees will be trained un­der each lan­guage, Manag­banag added.

“Hope­fully, sabi niya [Emano], if ma-train na sila (he said, af­ter their train­ing,) we can set up a school for lan­guage. Its not sig­uro (Per­haps its not a) school, kay when you say school, dako ra kaayo diba (its too big). So, crash cour­ses sig­uro (per­haps),” Manag­banag said.

She added that since there’s still no class­room avail­able, the classes will be held in a train­ing cen­ter at the capi­tol.

The plan to send em­ploy­ees for lan­guage train­ing, ac­cord­ing to the pro­vin­cial in­for­ma­tion of­fi­cer, came to be af­ter Emano kept re­ceiv­ing vis­its from for­eign in­vestors.

“Yang tat­long lan­guage, sup­pos­edly yung pur­pose niyang for train­ing is yung if ever may mga in­vestors na pa­pa­sok dito, hindi na mahi­hi­ra­pan si gov na maghanap ng in­ter­preter (Sup­pos­edly, the pur­pose of the train­ing is that if even there are more for­eign in­vestors com­ing in the prov­ince, look­ing for an in­ter­preter will not be hard for the gov­er­nor). He re­al­ized na kailan­gan ta­laga ng in­ter­preter sa prov­ince, es­pe­cially maram­ing in­vestors are com­ing in (that an in­ter­preter is re­ally needed es­pe­cially since there are sev­eral in­vestors com­ing in),” Manag­banag said.

She said the meet­ing with the Ja­panese di­rec­tor, who has ex­pressed an in­ter­est in em­ploy­ing 1,000 li­censed nurses from Misamis Ori­en­tal, on April 7 was timely as Emano came into de­ci­sion that the six em­ploy­ees, af­ter their train­ing, will per­haps be able to teach fu­ture li­censed nurses in Ni­hongo, Man­darin and Ara­bic, if even they de­cide to work abroad.

“Not just the nurses, it’s for ev­ery­one na kailan­gan na matu­ruan ng lan­guage (who needs to be taught the lan­guage),” Manag­banag added.

At present, Manag­banag said the capi­tol is still in the process of screen­ing to iden­tify which em­ploy­ees are qual­i­fied to be sent for train­ing in Manila.
