The transitional stage experience UNESCO’s language experts encouraged the teaching of literacy in mother tongue to adults, especially in cases where it is different from the official language, and suggested that once literacy is achieved in the mother tongue, the learners should be encouraged to read in a major language or in one that particularly interests them.

Among the reported problems are: the lack of a writing system, the problem of the script, the difference between the written and spoken forms of the language, the plenitude of mother tongues, cost, the non-availability of instructors and textbooks, to name but a few. UNESCO recommends that these problems should be studied carefully in order to come up with the best choices for particular situations. Still other problems emanated from the learners.
