Potawatomi language classes beginning

Bozho Jayek (Hello everyone),

As of the week of March 10, 2014, we will begin offering two language tracks, with a beginner class and an intermediate/ conversational class. 

The Beginner class will be Tuesday from 1:30-2:30 p.m. CST and Thursdays 11:00 a.m.-12:00 p.m. CST. To join this class, go to www.instantpresenter.com/potawatomi4 a few minutes before the class begins.

The beginner class is just for beginners. Anyone is welcome to attend and there is no charge, but it will be very basic content. You will learn different simple statements, commands, animals, weather, etc. If you have never had any Potawatomi language training, this is definitely the place to start. The classes on Tuesday will repeat on Thursday but folks will be welcome to go to both classes to cement their understanding.

The Intermediate/Conversational class will be Tuesday from 3:00-4:00 p.m. CST and Thursday 2:00–3:00 p.m. CST.

To join this class, go to www.instantpresenter.com/potawatomi2 a few minutes before the class begins.

The intermediate/conversational class will have live audio from both students and instructors. This class will be both topic based and will cover more challenging topics such as verbs, verbal patterns, storytelling and general conversation. There will be an element of both listening comprehension and an opportunity for students to talk back in the language. Anyone is welcome to attend and there is no charge, but this will be somewhat faster paced and hopefully we will have more conversations going on in the language.

 Please forward this information to anyone who you feel would be interested. For additional question please email me at jneely@potawatomi.org.
