LANGUAGE IS POWER

Learning. Speaking. Teaching. Changing Lives.


Getting involved with an indigenous language by learning or teaching is one of the best ways to help ensure its survival.

GET INVOLVED BY LEARNING

Studying a language is a challenge, but it has many great rewards.  To begin the process, chose a language at Ethnologue.   Then do with a web search for materials, language courses at universities, and study groups.

If there are not many options for your language, do not despair. Begin a self-study and join or form  a group on one of the social media sites. Once you start, stay committed to the process. The attention and interest you bring to the language will help others as well, and eventually bring more attention to the language.

GET INVOLVED BY TEACHING

If you know an indigenous language, then sharing your knowledge with others is one of the best ways to help the language survive.  You can help lead a study group or online learning community, or even volunteer at a school or language program.   There are many potential opportunities, but starting and helping others is important to the language alive.
