Introduction to Nuu-Chah-Nulth Language offered digitally

NIC is offering Nuu-Chah-Nulth language courses this fall through digital delivery. Three dialects will be offered. All three courses run Oct 5 – Dec 11 in the evenings.

Develop listening techniques as you compare and contrast Nuu‑chah‑nulth and English sound patterns and pronunciation. Learn words, phrases and greetings to communicate in home, class and with elders.

These courses are offered in a digital scheduled format, where students participate in a digital classroom, using a video conferencing system, as well as completing some independent work.

Students, instructors and language speakers will meet at specified times each week. Computer and internet required.
