Abstract The workshop was held in Wadeye from 10th to 14th September 1990 as part of the Batchelor College teacher education program. The aim of this particular workshop was to develop the students' professional skills in Murrinh-Patha, the language used along with English in the local bilingual program. The article is a report on the workshop through which misimpressions about vernacular writing in bilingual programs may be corrected.
