Our language training program, already proven highly effective in its ability to teach trainees language acquisition in a very short amount of time, continues to seek ways to broaden the language program the language skills needed by Volunteers. Discussions and reflections among Peace Corps Staff and Volunteers about how we can improve the effectiveness of the language program focused on the integration of language and technical skills acquisition for the purpose of improving Volunteer performance in the field. The genesis of this reflection involves the following question: "What are the knowledge, skills, and attitudes (KSAs) that Trainees need in order to become highly effective Volunteers?" This manual is, in part, an answer to this question as its purpose is to situations that you should expect to encounter as a Volunteer in Mali. This manual also represents a big step in the direction of implementing the new training design and evaluation process, whereby all training activities are driven by clearly defined competencies, KSAs, learning objectives and teaching methods.
