Tlingit Language


The Tlingit Language Proficiency Scope & Sequence was developed by Tlingit language birth speakers, teachers, learners, and school administrators. Designed as a guide for teaching and learning the Tlingit language, it addresses four levels of language proficiency: Beginning Speaker, Beginning-Mid Speaker, Beginning Conversational Speaker, and Good Conversational Speaker. The levels are not grade levels; a person of any age may be a Beginning Speaker.
