Beginner’s Guide to Abenaki Language Course (Online): The Four Senses, Part 1

October 4, 2021 @ 6:00 pm - October 26, 2021 @ 8:00 pm

Ndakinna Education Center Abenaki Language Remote Learning Classes:

Beginner’s Guide to Abenaki: The Four Senses

During our Beginner’s Guide to Abenaki, students will learn to confidently construct their own basic sentences based on carefully selected models. Each class will begin with a single key word that students will then learn more of the language off of.  Special focus will be given on the imperative form, as well as the incorporation of adjectives and adverbs.  Classes will include games, songs, group activities, and lesson specific worksheets.

Guide to Abenaki: Four Senses is broken into two sessions. The first is specifically designed to welcome those with no experience to the language, while the second, which will take place next month, builds on the first for those wanting more. As the title suggests, this moon’s course draws entirely on our senses as we explore the Abenaki world view with four model phrases focusing on a different sense each week.

In Penibagos (Leaf Falling Moon / October), our model phrases will offer expressions of gratitude in relation to our senses in honor of the Thanksgiving holiday.

This is a 4 week course taking place October 4th to the 26th at 6-8pm on Monday, 10 am to 12 pm Tuesday. The class will include a Certificate of Completion for students, and is recommended for anyone wishing to continue on to our Intermediate Course.
