This is an exciting week for everyone, finally after all of the planning, scheduling and arranging , we are very happy to have completed our first week of Nsyilxcn classes. We are all learning each others sn̓qlxʷskʷists (Syilx Names) and us as staff and co-teachers are finally able to put some of the names to the faces of the 12 new language learners.
For our first week of learning we have set the pace, we are in class 2 intensive days per week, starting at 9:00 am and ending at 4:00 pm. Each day we are able to cover 3 lessons and a review, we also teach a song every other day. This means in our first week, we have already covered lessons 1 through 6. These topics included introduction, numbers and age, food, physical description, personality traits, and the immediate family. As you can see from the picture posted, the lessons are very interactive, making learning fun, but help with the retaining the words through memory association.
We will be posting blogs ever week to show you our progress. Please continue to read and share them with your friends and family.
