In a previous article (Logan 1978) I discussed various teaching and learning difficulties in the third world. An earlier article discussed specific educational problems in Papua New Guinea (Logan 1976). This article, a sequel to those two, is concerned especially with educational problems that may arise due to language. The article was prompted by my undertaking a course in crosscultural education and by correspondence arising out of my previous article in this magazine. In fact it has been suggested that the whole subject requires much thought, and in this article I merely report others thoughts to generate discussion and possibly initiate some research activity.
