We offer an Introduction to Kanyen'kéha online course for absolute beginners. The course is 8 weeks. Students study on their own time i.e., there are no set times where students must be on-line. Students should be prepared to devote study time daily.
Passing the Introductory course will allow you to advance to Unit 1. Unit 1 is the first unit in our immersion course, and we plan to offer every unit as a separate course. These units are enhanced with video and audio material and are self-paced.
Our courses follows the root word method, and you will learn the principles of combining prefixes and roots to be able to construct your own sentences in the language.
Our main funder for this course is the Six Nations Language Commission.
We are utilizing the Schoology platform for our course. This is a great platform that allows us to incorporate many learning tools including videos, documents, as well as audio on quizzes. We also use digital flashcards using Quizlet and Anki.
Computer skills are absolutely necessary. Students must be capable of navigating web-pages, identifying and clicking links, and downloading files. Students must have consistent access to the internet and a computer or mobile device with speakers. It is not recommended to take the course using only cellular data.
All of our courses cost $40, payable by email money transfer or PayPal. We are maintaining a long wait list, and unfortunately are not taking names for the list at this time. Check back in late August for an update on that. Thank you for your interest and patience.
