You can help keep Indigenous languages alive this weekend at the Dauphin Friendship Centre with the 3rd Free Master-Apprentice Language Revitalization Workshop.
Heather Suter, project director, says this one isn’t just another workshop, it builds on top of the past two.
If you haven’t been to the previous workshops, that’s ok. They’ll be reviewing the fundamentals. If you’ve been to one before you should go again because there’s always something new to learn.
The fundamentals at the workshop are, leave English behind, learn survival phrases in the language for language help so you can speak in the language as much as possible, use props, pictures, and soundless videos and work one on one with an elder.
The instructors learn new ways to teach so things aren’t boring. It also helps many different people who learn in many different ways.
