Mobile Language Apps

    The next stage of First NAtions Language learning is digital catalogues and computer programs.

    Yukon Native Language Centre (YNLC) put on a week of training, open to all Yukon FN's to produce their own language applications.

    An 'App' can be used online, offline and on mobile devices to attain language courses.

    Dan Shorty, a Tlingit computer specialist was trained by Simon Fraser University to provide the skills needed to launch these apps.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    The program offers flexibility for access and focus for each proficiency level, which suits a beginner, intermediate and advanced learners.

    The course is being attended by 5 of Yukon's 8 languages so far.  

    They will follow up with a course in February that looks to provide more language content to their freshly developed app.
