ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Lakota Audio Series: A Practical Conversation Course, Volume 1a. This is Part A of the beginner's audio course in conversational Lakota. Designed for the adult self-learner, the audio lessens will guide the listener through numerous dialogues and scenarios ranging from common greetings, kinship terms, kitchen and clothing items, commands, past/future and subject/object expressions. Gain confidence in the language quickly and practically.

Greetings and polite kinship questions are just the simpler side of what you will be able to learn from this Audio Series. It gets a lot more in-depth the further you go – for instance, talking about cars, about going to a dance, who heard someone say something, the ordinary commands of a day in the life, telling each other what to do, are all in this 5-hour sequence of lessons.

Whether studying in your bedroom or on your daily commute, you will be immersed in Lakota language in a way that creates a deep intuitive grasp of the language and establishes a strong base for fluency.
