adelantecorazon asked: I read on one of the asks about language resources. I was wondering about websites or resources where to learn the Nahualt language since I found out my Great-Grandmother spoke nothing but that language. Any ideas?
But I mostly just look through the ‘Nahuatl’ tag, it has a lot of useful tips on pronunciation and such. My father knows the language better than me though so I usually get some help from him, mostly because sometimes the words are not spelled correctly and that can make all the difference. - mod M
*If you go in the Nahuatl tag, you have to know a decent amount of Spanish because it’s mainly Spanish to Nahuatl.
I know a university course like this is very expensive but maybe someone out there is interested. Financial aid is available according to the website. The professor John Sullivan has previously taught an online course through the University of New Mexico Chicana & Chicano Studies Program as recently as Spring 2013. There may be other opportunities out there in the future so keep an eye out. If nothing else, there is a short list of course materials after the jump. IDIEZ seems like a very cool organization as well. Here’s the info for the class:
The Council on Latin American and Iberian Studies (CLAIS) at Yale University, in partnership with IDIEZ (the Instituto de Docencia e Investigación Etnológica de Zacatecas, Mexico) offer the opportunity to study Classical and Modern Nahuatl at the beginning, intermediate and advanced levels in a summer intensive course that will be held at Yale in Summer 2014.
Dates of Course: June 23 – August 1, 2014.
