The second in these series of workshops was held from June 8-10, 2020 in the Dan Language area of Karnplay City, headquarters of Gbehlay Geh District bordering the Ivory Coast. Many Dan speakers in this part of the Ivory Coast who interact with the Dan in Liberia have expressed the desire to join the literacy classes to learn how to read and write Dan. Literacy Coordinators came from 5 surrounding districts to attend this workshop. Fifteen (15) participants (11 males and 4 females) were in attendance.

The third of these workshops was held in Klay city, Bomi County on June 18. This workshop was limited to one day because there were several covid-19 related activities going on in surrounding areas. Ten male prospective trainers attended.
Workshop topic focused on Andragogy, the method of teaching adults. The topic was well assimilated by participants as was demonstrated by them during practice sessions, culminating in a very rewarding experience for all. This raised the spirits of prospective trainers to begin classes as soon as possible.
