Paçoquinha Program

A PCM, com o programa Paçoquinha, deseja ser a ponte entre o Brasil e os pequenos brasileirinhos na Austrália para que eles desenvolvam a língua e sintam que, mesmo estando longe, o Brasil sempre fará parte deles.

Assim como é descrito no livro Como Manter e Desenvolver o Português como Língua de Herança: Sugestões Para Quem Mora Fora do País, de Ivian Destro Boruchowski e Ana Lúcia Lico (2016), “Para o desenvolvimento da fala, é muito importante que o jovem ou a criança tenha oportunidades de interação ativa” (p.17). Logo, o nosso foco é ensinar a cultura brasileira para crianças, sejam elas filhos de brasileiros ou australianos, de uma forma lúdica, divertida, memorável e constante. Durante as nossas atividades, as crianças terão a oportunidade de interagir entre elas, praticar o português e aprender mais sobre de onde elas ou seus pais vieram.

“O conceito Língua de Herança é fruto da estreita relação entre língua, identidade e cultura, uma vez que a herança que está sendo passada de uma geração à outra não corresponde apenas a habilidades linguísticas, mas também à cultura, aos costumes do país de origem do(s) pai(s) e aos valores familiares”. – Felicia Jennings-Winterle
