We accomplished a major milestone in our 2,000 hour journey ... The 40th lesson (!) of Nsyilxcn 2, the THIRD Paul Creek (Salish School of Spokane) textbook. Next week, oral and written exams. Our reward will be Captíkʷł 2, the FOURTH textbook, 15 traditional stories in full paragraphs, audio and onscreen app. Our Elder, Sʕamtíc̓aʔ Sarah Peterson says, "niʕ̓íp kʷu səcxitmíʔst, cəm qəłnuntm." (we are putting in constant effort in order to succeed). Our 5.5 hour daily lesson plan structure is pictured below. After 400 hours we are ready for more Elder immersion. Sʕamtíc̓aʔ comes next week to cheer us on. limləmt Sʕamtíc̓aʔ!
