Tlingit Language


The goal of creating this workbook is to transition towards image-based language learning to encourage word-image association instead of Tlingit-word to English-word association. Additions have been made, and some optional grammatical explanations have been added through a number of different sections, but the basic philosophy remains the same: learn nouns that start off with sounds familiar to English speakers and begin introducing nouns with more challenging sounds. Phrases are introduced through substitution drills, where students can learn something basic and then make it more dynamic by adding other elements they are learning.
